I've made this soup a number of times and each time it seems to get better and better.
I often cook a bunch of chicken and have bags of portioned cooked, shredded chicken in the freezer. I cooked the rice early in the day so when it came time for dinner, this was able to be thrown together very quickly.
We ate this with a pepper jack peach quesadilla with honey lime sour cream. It was a wonderful meal!! Very healthy and incredibly tasty!!
