  1. In a Dutch oven, combine the chicken broth, chopped onion, sliced celery, sliced carrots, chopped parsley, ground pepper, dried thyme, and a bay leaf. Bring the mixture to a boil. Once boiling, reduce the heat to low and let it simmer until the onion and celery start to soften, which should take about 10 to 15 minutes. Add the chicken to the simmering broth and cook until the chicken is fully cooked and no longer pink in the center, approximately 5 to 10 minutes. Remove the bay leaf and discard it. Stir in the rice and lime juice, cooking and stirring until the rice is heated through and the grains are separate, roughly 1 minute. Garnish with lime slices before serving.


  • – For a richer flavor, use chicken thighs instead of breasts.
    – This soup can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 3 days or frozen for up to 3 months.
    – Feel free to add other vegetables like peas or corn for extra nutrition.
