"A quick and easy chicken soup, perfect for a cold day. Perfect with a sandwich or salad, or with crusty garlic bread. You can substitute any rice you have on hand, but adjust cook time if necessary. This is a pretty thick soup as written -- if you prefer a brothier soup, add more broth or use less flour/rice. We use between 1/2 cup and 3/4 cup of rice, depending on what is left in the rice bag. Vegetables can be swapped for ones you prefer or have on hand (for example, you can use carrots instead of sweet potato)."
