Classic chicken soup has celery, carrots, onions, garlic, and rice. The sherry wine adds depth, but may be omitted.

  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced (about 2 Tablespoons)

Warms up Your Toes, Member jdhowell

We were just looking for a way to use a rotrisserie chicken that was about to go bad so we looked up chicken and rice recipes and just shredded the whole chicken and added mushrooms. It thickened so well, it was hard to believe it was a stock base with no cream. Leftovers were even better, turns into a stew like consistency, so you can go a little over on the broth if you want more soup-y. Definitely will make this again!!
