Salad Menu - Chicken, Rice and Vegetable Soup

A bowl of chicken, rice and vegetable soup.

It has been a while since I posted a soup recipe. It is not because I haven't been cooking soups ( I cook soups at-least twice a week), but mainly because I have been experiencing with soups and didn't want to post something I wouldn't make again. This chicken, rice and vegetable soup my whole family enjoyed, even on a hot summer day. It has a good amount of vegetables and protein but is really light in flavor.
