Easy to prepare and nourishing, this straightforward, family-friendly soup recipe uses boneless chicken thighs and white rice. Ready in just an hour, it doesn't need to simmer all day for a full flavor that gets a little extra panache when topped with sharp, grated cheese.

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Heat oil in a medium saucepan over medium-high until hot. Add leeks, carrots, and celery; cook, stirring occasionally, until crisp-tender, 6 to 8 minutes. Add stock, chicken thighs, and rice; bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low and simmer until vegetables and rice are tender and chicken is cooked through, about 14 minutes. Remove from heat. Transfer chicken to a plate and let cool slightly. Cover soup partially with a lid. When chicken is cool enough to handle, shred into bite-size pieces. Return to soup and cook just until warmed through, about 1 minute. Serve soup with cheese and parsley.

Looks wonderful...but disappointing - will precook and cool rice to avoid pasty outcome in future.

The beginning of the recipe speaks of 3 tablespoons of extra-virgin olive oil. The beginning of the directions speaks of "when butter melts" . Are we using butter or are we using olive oil? No salt? Please clarify thank you

Recipe starts out with extra virgin olive oil. The beginning of the instructions speaks of "when butter is melted". Are we using olive oil *and* butter? Are we using butter instead of olive oil? Is butter a typo? I'd love to make this soup but I need clarification thank you.
