Sharing my Classic Chicken and Rice Soup today!
Is there anything better than homemade soup? You’ve got to try my Classic Chicken and Rice Soup. So hearty, comforting and oh so delicious! I posted a pretty little Instagram picture of the soup I made the family for lunch. I did not plan on sharing the recipe, but because I posted that little picture on Instagram, I got lots of requests for the recipe 🙂
You know I generally like to post step by step photos, but that Sunday afternoon, photos were the last thing on my mind 🙂 I was rushing around like a mad woman after church to get lunch made for my hungry boys.
Since it was so delicious, I penciled down the recipe, took a couple photos of the very last bowl left on Monday so I could share with you. Hope you enjoy minus all the photos!! xoxo

Ahhhhh! Best soup ever!! Thank you so much for this recipe. My 3 boys gobbled it up! It’s all about the mustard. Don’t let it scare you! Double it and freeze some for later. You won’t be sorry!!
Looks delicious! Was wondering if you used a long grain, medium grain, or short grain white rice.
I want to double the recipe. Do you think it will fit in a 6 quart crock pot? Cooking for a big crowd. Thanks for sharing it!
I just made a pot of this last night! It was so delicious, is ish that I had doubled the recipe so that we could eat it for a week! One of the most delicious soups I have had in a LONG time! Thank you so much for this wonderful, affordable, and easy recipe! This is going on my recipe box 🙂
Thank you so much Courtney! So glad you enjoyed!
So delicious on a cold night. Added some spices. Used a rotisserie chicken and wild rice instead of white. Could have licked the bowl
I made this yesterday and loved every bite! So much so, I posted it on my blog 🙂 Love your recipes! Thanks for sharing 🙂
This was amazing! We made it slightly different to make it easier on our busy schedule:
We prepped ahead of time:
-made the rice in the rice cooker
-sautéed onion and garlic in pan
Then threw everything into the crock pot (6qt was too big, try 4qt) and cooked on low about 8 hours.
Made this last night – the (very picky) son and hubby both loved it! Will be adding it to my regular repertoire. Love your site!
I made this – oh so yummy! Thanks for sharing!
I saw the dijon mustard and said “WHAT?”…then I did as I was told and put it in the broth. OHMYGAWD! This soup was fantastic. Loved every spoonful. I knew to just go with you…you’ve NEVER steered me wrong. Thanks for sharing…and I never missed the pictures. =)
I made this the other night for dinner and it was excellent! I started the veggies early and let them really cook down so they were nice and tender. Very filling and comforting soup – perfect with a side of French bread! Thanks!
I made this soup tonight..very tasty! I had a real problem with the veggies though…they never got tender…even after more than 15 minutes on medium. I ended up having to boil the soup to get un-crunchify them! Any advice for next time?
I’m trying this out for dinner tonight, it looks delicious! I’m also trying out your taco soup this week. Can you tell that I am a total soup lover?
I am a huge soup fan too Melissa! Hope you enjoy the soups 🙂
This is something my mom would serve everytime I am feverish as a child, or heartbroken as a teener…
This is real comfort soup!
Started using Instagram this week, love its diversity w/pics! Another lovely recipe from you, thanks 🙂
