How-To Make Easy Homemade Chicken Soup

So Easy to Make! Homemade chicken, rice and veggie soup from Popular Pin

I often find myself scrambling to make something for dinner.  I am NOT a planner 😉 I so wish I were.  I wish I were one of those amazingly organize people who had their meals planned ahead for a month, a week, or heck, even a day.  I was having one of those days recently where I really didn’t know what I was going to make for dinner and then this recipe came to me (it literally did via e-mail!).  I couldn’t wait to try it.  It was something I could make fairly quickly that was delicious, filling and even had veggies.

I went to my local Giant Eagle and bought Knorr Rice sides, some chicken breasts, and zucchini and I already had every else I needed on hand.

How-To Make Easy Homemade Chicken Soup


1 tbsp. olive oil

3 medium red bell peppers, chopped

1 3/4 cups chopped onion

3/4 cup zucchini, halved lengthwise, then sliced

1/2 cup chopped celery

1/4 tsp. dried thyme leaves

2 cans (14.5 oz. each) reduced-sodium chicken broth

1 1/2 cups water 1 package Knorr Rice Sides – Chicken flavor Broccoli

2 1/3 cups shredded cooked boneless, skinless chicken breasts


  1. Heat olive oil in 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat and cook vegetables and thyme, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are tender about 6 minutes.
  2. Add broth, water, and Knorr Rice Sides – Chicken flavor Broccoli.  Bring to a boil.  Reduce heat and cook covered 10 minutes or until rice is tender.
  3. Stir in chicken and serve immediately.

Because I have a family of 5 (4 males who eat everything in SIGHT) I doubled this recipe and they ate it all.
