  • 8 oz onions chopped
  • 12 oz carrots chopped
  • 4 oz celery chopped
  • 1 cup uncooked long-grain rice
  • 12 oz skinless boneless chicken thighs
  • 1 tsp parsley minced
  • 1 tsp garlic minced
  • 1 tsp dried thyme divided
  • 1.5 tsp black pepper divided
  • 1/2 tsp salt divided
  • 10 cups unsalted chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1.5 tbsp olive oil


  • In a soup pot, cook chicken thighs in oil on medium heat, for 5 minutes. Season the chicken with half the amount of salt, black pepper and dried thyme.
  • Take the chicken out. Add butter, carrots, and onion into the same pot and cook for 4 minutes. Then add the rice, celery, and garlic and cook for another 2 minutes.
  • Add chicken broth, cover and let simmer for 30 minutes.
  • Add the cooked chicken and the remaining salt and thyme. Cook for another 2 minutes.
  • Use an immersion blender and blend for 5 seconds, no more, no less. It helps to thicken the soup and naturally turns the soup colorful.
  • Add cream and mix well. Sprinkle parsley and pepper on top to decorate.
  • Serve.
