Lynn demonstrates how to make a delicious and easy Creamy Chicken and Rice Soup suitable for lunch or dinner.
Heat olive oil in a large soup pot over medium heat. Add onion, carrots and celery and cook until tender, stirring occasionally, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook for another 60 seconds. Add the chicken stock, diced chicken, rice, corn, bouillon, basil, sea salt, black pepper, and bay leaf. Cover and cook over medium heat for 15-20 minutes. Mix the corn starch and evaporated milk together and add to the soup. Cook for a few more minutes. The soup will thicken as it cooks.
Note -- If you would like it a little bit spicy, add a little bit of cayenne pepper to the finished soup.
