  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 cup white rice
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 2 carrots, peeled and chopped
  • 2 celery stalks, chopped
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon thyme
  • 1 bay leaf
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Chopped fresh parsley for garnish


  1. Start by seasoning the chicken breasts with salt and pepper. In a large pot, heat a tablespoon of oil over medium heat. Add the chicken and cook until browned. Remove and set aside.
  2. In the same pot, add a bit more oil if needed and sauté the onion, carrots, and celery until they start to soften. Add the minced garlic and cook for another minute.
  3. Return the cooked chicken to the pot and add the thyme and bay leaf. Pour in the chicken broth and bring to a boil.
  4. Once boiling, add the rice and reduce the heat to a simmer. Cover the pot and let it cook for about 15-20 minutes, or until the rice is tender and the flavors meld together.
  5. Before serving, taste and adjust the seasoning with more salt and pepper if needed. Remove the bay leaf.
  6. Ladle the Homestyle Chicken and Rice Soup into bowls, garnish with chopped parsley, and serve hot.
