Chicken and Rice Soup

Found another yummy soup recipe that was quick and easy and perfect for our first true winter day! The day I made this soup it was -3 in MN when I woke up and it didn't get above 15 degrees for the day... That is a day that truly screams for soup!! Josh is not the biggest fan of soup, but even he liked this one and said that it was a keeper!
