I bet that many of y’all have been hit by the same sniffles and sneezes that have run rampant at our house since the holidays. And when I posted my cure-all Mexican Chicken & Rice Soup to our Instagram recently, you guys slid right into our DM’s with so many requests for the recipe. It’s too good (and too easy) not to share, so I wanted to post it ASAP so y’all can have this easy chicken soup on repeat during these chilly months just like we do. We can’t think of a better reason to get in the kitchen, plus this one will easily feed a crowd which is critical during the busy holidays.
The thing I love most about this recipe is that you literally just throw all the ingredients into the pot and since the chicken cooks on the bone in the soup, it flavors the entire broth with a rich flavor that you usually only get from totally homemade chicken stock. Make a double (or triple!) batch because it freezes beautifully, and there’s nothing better than coming home from a long day at work, knowing this is waiting to be reheated.
Scroll on for the recipe, and let me know if you give it a try. It really is a cure for the body and soul!
