This is a little different than regular chicken soup but still good.

One boneless chicken breast

Two tablespoons butter or olive oil

One cup chopped carrots

1/2 cup chopped celery

One cup chopped onions

2 cloves diced garlic

1/2 cup white or brown rice

One inch of grated fresh ginger

Six cups of water

2 tablespoons chicken powdered consume

1/2 teaspoon turmeric

One teaspoon sesame oil

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

One handful of sugar snap peas or regular frozen peas

Put the butter and chicken with 1/2 teaspoon of salt in a  pot and brown  both sides.

Add the onion, garlic, carrots and celery

Slowly cook till the vegetables are soft

Add the water, rice, consume, pepper, turmeric, ginger and sesame oil

Stir everything.

Bring to a boil for five minutes

Remove the chicken and shred it and then return it to the pot.

Cover and simmer till the rice is cooked

Put the peas into the soup and enjoy

You can also add a beaten egg after you take it off the stove but I don’t.

This is just a quick chicken rice soup for any time.

Make sure you adjust the salt to your taste.

Add or delete anything but keep the onions, carrots, celery and ginger
