Level up from a classic chicken noodle soup for a Vegetable Soup with Chicken and Rice, fewer calories and more nutrition.

It has been a while since I have posted a soup recipe. It is not because I haven’t been cooking soups (I cook soups at least twice a week), but mainly because I have been experimenting with soups and didn’t want to post something I wouldn’t make again. My whole family enjoyed this chicken, rice, and vegetable soup even on this hot summer day. It has a good amount of vegetables and protein but is nice and light in flavor.
