Quarantine Get What You Can Get Chicken Rice Soup

I decided in the honor of Mother’s Day, my mom’s birthday, and being quarantined that I would do something so would do for me. She would make me homemade chicken rice soup. It always made me feel better. 

Quarantine got me pretty down and really emotional. I needed a pick me up. I wondered if a part of my mom would help me feel more relaxed and get through this hard time. It did help more than I anticipated. 

I couldn’t go shopping myself since I was quarantined, so I ordered from Target. I could get the exact ingredients for the soup. I had to be creative and make up a new quarantine soup. The soup turned out better than I thought with the power sage and rosemary. I wasn’t sure if these changes would taste good, but it turned out yummy. 

Ingredients:

3 Chicken breast Strips 

1 cup of rice (white or brown)

1 small onion

½ bag of baby carrots, chopped

3 celery stalks, chopped

3 tsp of salt

Dash of pepper for taste

1 tap rosemary 

1 tsp sage 

2 tbsp butter

6 cups of chicken broth

3 cups of water

Instructions

  1. Place all ingredients into crockpot like the picture below.
  2. Stir, once you have all ingredients inside the crockpot.
  3. Cook for 4 hours on low.
  4. When the soup has been cooking for 2 hours, remove chicken and shred in into small chunks. Put chicken back in and let it cook for the remainder of the time.
  5. Stir before serving.

***If you don’t like soft rice add the rice after 2 hours before or after shredding the chicken.***

  1. Happy late Mother’s Day! I’m so sorry you’re in quarantine for it and experiencing such a tough time. But you’re an amazing lady with loving parents looking on. This soup sounds so good (I’ll definitely have to give it a try!) and it’s always nice to have mom around no matter what form.
