A delicious and warming Brazilian-style chicken soup with bacon for extra flavour. Very straightforward to make and very filling!
One of the best chicken soup recipes I have ever tasted. I do this, buy a roasted chicken at the grocery store, (the ones they cook in a rotisserie)let it cool, remove all the skin and bones, then dice in big pieces, put in the stock pot with the ingredients, cook and serve. Really a great flavor. - 17 Dec 2002 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Two thumbs up! My subs: I used one pkg of chicken (~1.5 lbs) - this seemed like plenty. I did double up the ham to please my meat-loving fiance. I also subbed a can of diced tomatoes for the fresh (though in retrospect I think the fresh would have been much better.) Overall, I think this soup took almost 2 hours from pot to table. Next time I'll increase the rice and use cilantro for the parsley. - 10 Feb 2009 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Good the first day, AWESOME the next. Make it the day before so the flavors will blend better. - 17 Nov 2008 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
