6 Easy Dinner Recipes, #3
You should really make this awesome soup tonight! This soup is very healthy, lean – and also easy on your wallet! It’s perfect for those days when you have leftover chicken from last night’s dinner. If you don’t have leftover chicken, you can use rotisserie chicken. Or boil some chicken breast pieces in a pot of water, until they are no longer pink. Then just shred them (the easiest way is to use 2 forks) and, voila! You’re good to go.
My little picky eater isn’t too fond of soups, but this is a recipe he always enjoys. The last time I made this, he had three helpings!
This is also a great recipe for anyone who would like to lose a couple of pounds. Make sure you’re using low-sodium chicken stock!
1 tablespoon Bertolli extra-virgin olive oil
1 medium yellow onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 medium carrots, chopped
2 celery ribs, cut into 1/2-inch-thick slices
4 fresh thyme sprigs
1 bay leaf
2 quarts chicken stock or broth
1 cup of water
1 cup long grain white rice
2 cups shredded cooked chicken (can use rotisserie chicken)
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
Place a large pot over medium heat and add the olive oil. Add the onion, garlic, carrots, celery, thyme and bay leaf. Cook and stir for about 6 minutes, until the vegetables are softened but not browned.
Pour in the chicken broth and water and bring the liquid to a boil. Add in the rice and chicken; season with salt and pepper.
Cook on medium-low until the rice is tender, about 25-30 minutes. Serve warm.

Quick tip: Use turkey instead of chicken, if you’d like.
I don’t know why these recipes are put on the UK web site as most of the ingredients we can’t get here…..I must say thought that they all look delicious
What can’t you get in the Uk that’s in the pasta recipe”?…..?.
All those ingredients are found here… who care the name of your eggs, butter, flour, starch, sauce etc…it is just a name.
You don’t have to use the brand names.
What are the names of the dishes??
I don’t think you have to use the brand names specified. If you can find, for instance, tomato soup, just buy the brand you can find. Doesn’t have to be Campbell’s.
I don’t like pasta dishes. But my fat does so I make them but tomato soup has enough sugar in it that I would eliminate the tesp.oc sugar that you add. I also use sea st, not Norton any flavor salt. Ionized or plain. Noodles in my day and pasta where never used simultaneously. Pasta is made from a different kind of grain than noodles. It states so on the package. I use noodles to combine with beef or chicken, some mix it with pork but in my opinion the pork used mostly is a bit greasy. I know I probably sound picky but my Mother made our tomato soup without the sugar and we four ragamuffins loved it. I believe to much of our food supply contains way more sugar than we need. Diabetics do without all that sugar and we should as well. I guess at 80 I’m a little more opinionated than some of your other readers.
Then make it to your liking. These easy recipes are for people with little spare time and need quick dinners. You don’t have to eat it every night. How condescending.
Enough already! Cook it your way.
Rock the boat, it’s okay!
How much noodles ????
Delphia–read the recipe–it says 8 ounces
