Recipe

For awhile now I have had my eye on a delicious Lemon Chicken Artichoke soup from Whole Foods, but at around $5 per serving, it’s not the most economical choice. So after purchasing it a few times for official taste testing, I was finally able to develop an at home version I like just as much that’s made in the slow cooker. The secret in this recipe in my opinion, is letting the rice cook with everything else until it gets nice and thick and adds the creamy element to the soup. (Note: If you don’t like rice with that texture, make it separately and add it to the soup at the end.) Then adding lots of lemon juice to brighten everything up. It freezes great so make up a big batch and save some for later.

    Thank you, thank you, thank you for this yummy, comforting recipe. I prepared it with no changes to the recipe, except I used wild rice which I cooked before I added it to the soup.
