What You Need (ingredients)

  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 cup long grain rice
  • 1 cup peas

  • 2 cups water salt and pepper to taste

What To Do (directions)

Chop the onion and cut the chicken in small pieces. In a soup pot, heat the butter over medium heat. Add the onion and saute, but do not brown, only saute until the onion is translucent. Add the chicken to the onion and cook the chicken a bit until it’s white. Add a cup of rice to the pot and then the chicken broth and water. Add salt and pepper to taste, lemon juice, and hot sauce if preferred. Cook the soup until the rice is done, about 15 to 20 mins. Add the peas and cook for a couple more minutes. Serve hot with chives for garnish.
