Chicken & Rice Gourmet Baby Food

I decided to create a new gourmet baby food creation, and this time is was…. Chicken & Rice.

Okay okay… I know what you’re thinking..”How is that new?” Well, it’s new because I have never created this recipe before. 😉

I put chicken stock in a large saucepan and added thinly sliced carrots, diced celery, and thinly sliced leek. I brought it to a boil, reduced the heat to low, and let simmer gently , partially covered, for 10 minutes.

I then stirred in defrosted petit pois, rice, and sliced cooked chicken. I continued cooking for an additional 10-15 minutes, until the vegetables were tender.

I added chopped fresh tarragon and parsley, then tasted to check the seasoning. I added ground pepper as needed.

Yummy!! 🙂

Soup Adventures… Chicken & Rice Soup

Chicken and Rice Soup!
Chicken and Rice Soup!

This weekend was the next installment of my Soup Adventures. The soup? Chicken & Rice Soup! 🙂

First I put previously made home-made chicken stock in a large saucepan and added very thinly chopped carrots, finely diced celery, and thinly sliced leeks. I brought it to a boil, reduced the heat to low, and let it simmer gently, partially covered, for 10 minutes.

I then stirred in precooked rice and precooked chicken and continued cooking for an additional 10-15 minutes, or until the vegetables are tender.
[*Note: if you like peas, this would be the time to add petit pois.]

I added chopped fresh tarragon and parsley. Taste to adjust the seasoning, adding salt and pepper.

I the ladled the soup into warmed bowls. I garnished with fresh parsley, and served.
