One of our family's favourite meals for sure. We add extra chicken to make it last a little longer. Leftovers taste even better.

I found the more I ate of my bowl, the more all of the flavours jumped out at me. Very nice, will repeat!

Excellent taste - only change I made was to purée the soup/broth before adding the cooked chicken, and added some chopped cilantro. I also let this simmer for about 2 hours, the flavour just got better and better.

Great recipe! This was a hit at a potluck I took it to. I substituted margarine for the butter since some folks couldn't handle dairy and I just cooked chicken with the onions and carrots at the start and used half the amount of uncooked rice with the stock.
