Celebrity Chicken with Rice Soup

Winter colds and flu gotcha down? Having one of those low-energy evenings where the whole idea of “dinner” just sounds too high-maintenance? And the fridge has Ziplock containers with leftover chicken noodle and whatever from yesterday (after all, who can eat a whole can of soup by themselves when not feeling well?)

And those containers by themselves don’t contain enough for a single-serving portion? If you’re not feeling well, it’s enough to make you turn around and go back to bed.

Here’s what I did. It’s REALLY simple, and it’s supposed to be – chicken soup is a delicate flavor. Don’t overload it with oregano, garlic seasoning, or such. Stick to JUST these basics:

  • Open a new can of Chicken With Rice and add the suggested one can of water (not chicken stock)
  • Add some leftover chicken noodle if you have it in the fridge.
  • Add one 99 cent can of mushrooms – caps, or pieces and stems.
  • That’s it. Heat and serve. It might just be the best chicken soup you ever had. The mushrooms add a fresh distinctive flavor that just really complements all the other ingredients. You’d think you were being served in a pricey gourmet restaurant.

    Oh, and what’s the “Celebrity” about? Nothing, really – no one’s endorsing my soup. But you’ll feel like a celebrity when you try a bowl.
