This soup will warm you up on those cold winter days. I make a big pot of this when we have friends or family over and serve alongside a make your own sandwich bar. I like to have a variety of meats and cheese and let everyone make their own sandwiches.
This soup is also good by itself with crackers or bread. It’s very filling and full of rice and chicken.
