With no end in sight to the snowfall here in the Northeast, a good hearty soup is an ideal dinner. This was more of a very thick stew than a soup but it was delicious and filling. The cheese, rice, chicken, and bacon are superb all together and there are a whole bunch of veggies in there to make it a complete meal.
I saw it on Picky Palate and made it according to the orginal recipe from smithfield.com (link below). The only thing I changed was to use a pound of shredded chicken breast instead of a store-bought chicken. To make this even better, serve with some Texas Toast! :)
