Quick Chicken Soup with Rice


  • One and a half quarts (6 cups) of bone broth
  • 1 lb boneless skinless chicken thighs
  • 2 stalks celery
  • Handful of baby carrots
  • 1/3 of a large onion or ½ of a medium onion
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic
  • 1 tsp minced ginger
  • ½ tsp turmeric
  • ½ tsp salt or more, to taste
  • Pepper to taste
  • ½ c. rice


  • Soup pot or Dutch oven
  • Cutting boards
  • Knives
  • Measuring spoons

How to:

Slice chicken, celery, carrots and onion into bite-sized pieces.  Heat soup pot over medium heat.  Add the chicken and let sear a bit.  Throw in the veggies, garlic and ginger.  I’ve added a few shiitake mushrooms here, just because.

Add the broth, turmeric, salt, pepper and rice. Bring just to a boil, then turn down to simmer for 30 minutes or until rice is done to taste.

Steamy comfort!
