  • ½ cup Brown Rice long grain
  • 500 grams Chicken Breast cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 4 cup Chicken Broth
  • 2 tbsp Celery diced
  • 2 nos. Carrot peeled and sliced
  • 2 spring Thyme
  • 1 nos. Potato large (cut into cubes)
  • 1 nos. Onion diced
  • 2 clove Garlic
  • ½ tsp Sea Salt
  • ½ tsp Black Pepper powder
  • tsp Chilli Flakes
  • 1 cup Milk
  • 1 tbsp Cornstarch


Slow Cooker Method

  • First, gather all the ingredients into the slow cooker. Just make sure do not include milk and cornstarch.
  • Cover the lid and cook for 6 to 8 hours in low heat. It would be best if you cook until the chicken is cooked and all the vegetables are tenderized.
  • After that, remove the lid of the cooker, add milk, and stir to combine all.
  • Cook for 10 minutes more.
  • You can see the soup is ready.
  • If you want a little thicker consistency, add 2 tbsp of milk along with 1 tbsp of cornstarch mixture and cook about 10 minutes more.

Regular Method

  • Take a large saucepan and heat with 1 tsp of olive oil.
  • Now add chopped carrots, onion and celery and cook for about 3-4 minutes.
  • Add chopped garlic, parsley and thyme and cook for about 1 minute.
  • After that, add chicken broth along with salt, pepper and chicken.
  • Add rice and stir gently. Cover the lid and bring it to a boil over medium heat.
  • After a boil, reduce the heat to low and cook for 30 minutes more. Don't forget to stir occasionally.
  • When you see the rice, vegetables and chicken are tenderized, remove the chicken from the pan and shred it. (The easiest method I ever see)
  • Put them back to the saucepan, give a gentle mix and add evaporated milk.
  • You can also add cornstarch to give it a more creamy texture.
  • Serve it hot.
