I love a quick and easy dinner. I used to not cook much, but then I got married. I knew I had to be a good cook to feed me and my husband. So I started looking for easy meals. I search for “easy meals” on Pinterest every couple of days. I remembered one of my mom’s quick recipes for Chicken and Rice Soup and I decided to spice it up a little bit. It is perfect on a cool night when you need dinner fast.
Plus, I’m joining in with some other bloggers to bring you 30 Minute Dinner recipes. Check out all the other great recipes at the end of the post.
This simple chicken and rice soup combines some veggies, rice and soup. It really does come together nice and quick in 30 minutes.

thanks for the recipe! I like how slow cooker recipes are very easy to customize to individual preferences – like you mentioned you can choose your favorite enchilada sauce or choose to mince garlic instead of doing the powder.
My mother and I had a better than average relationship growing up so we were somewhat close. Kiddo and I get along truly well and she converses with me about a considerable measure of things she doesn’t converse with her father (my center points) or her mother since she doesn’t see me the same as them. Her mother has disillusioned her thus there is no trust there. Thus, I am protected. I trust she will keep on feeling safe with me and trust in me since we have an awesome confiding in bond.
