I know it’s not typically soup time, but I’m a soup fan all year round. There is seriously nothing like a warm bowl of soup to make you feel better. I love this recipe, it has all those comforting ingredients and I added some Ranch seasoning that really makes this soup extra delish!
Everyone’s kids out for summer break? We’ve got a little over 2 weeks to go, I’m getting plans set for summer. Looking forward to hanging at the beach…..A LOT!!
Hope you all enjoy a nice bowl of soup…..even if it’s boiling hot outside lol!

I made this tonight and it is a good comfort meal. Amazing how the Dijon mustard, ranch dressing and hot sauce works.
Made this for my family and I absolutely loved it! Thank you so much for sharing.
Shantel, I’m so happy you enjoyed. 🙂
I’m reading this….enjoying the pictures of “fresh veggies”, “organic free range chicken broth”, and then …chemical-laden ranch seasoning……very disappointed 🙁
Can you make this without the rice? Thank you!
Just found this via Pinterest. This is sooooo good. I could find the seasoning, but just substituted from a package of dry ranch. The Dijon mustard puts this over the top! Great recipe!!
I made this yesterday and it is really good, probably one of the best chicken and rice soups I have had! My 10-year-old daughter loved it, and she is really picky! Thanks for another great recipe!
Does the Ranch Dressing seasoning have MSG? I am allergic. Would love to make this!
We loved this easy soup! Flavors are good and I like the change of rice in this from noodles.
I made this tonite and the whole family loved it! I’m sure we’ll be making this a lot now that Fall is fast approaching. Thanks for another great recipe that’s healthy 🙂
I made this soup and we all LOVED it! I used a rotisserie chicken instead, and it was wonderful! I love the ranch seasonsing — gave it just the perfect amount of zest!
Made this yesterday…it’s delicious and my kids even ate it! 🙂 Totally perfect for our sub-zero weather. Thanks!
Oh my goodness…that looks amazing. It’s going on the menu next week for sure!
Hi. Love your blog! I am so excited to make this!! Just wanted to know if this freezes ok?
I just made this and I have to say I was worried about the Ranch flavoring but it’s surprisingly mild and adds a little something to this recipe. I think next time I’ll cut the dijon amount in half. I think it’s kind of overpowering.
This is really great though and I plan to put this in my soup rotation and make it again. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe!
I made this last night for dinner, it was light and yummy!
This looks so wonderful I have bookmarked it everywhere so I won’t lose it!
I forgot to mention one other thing … how do you and Amanda stay so slim (fit) with all the fantastic food you were eating on your trip to see Rocco? The two of you are beautiful!
I can hardly wait to try this recipe! My husband and I love to eat soup! We eat soup all year long … it could be 100 degrees outside, and we’ll be inside having a hot bowl of soup.
I am just wondering where you found the ranch seasoning! I love that it comes in a jar like that and I have looked at a few stores and haven’t seen it!! Is it by the other ranch packets or in the season aisle? thank you!!
