Creamy Chicken and Rice Soup

The perfect chicken soup that is creamy, has lots of flavor, and is also gluten free.  

Creamy Chicken and Rice Soup- gluten free, so delicious

All winter I’ve been enjoying my Chicken and Green Chile soup.  It’s delicious, and I’ve had some serious cravings.  But, then my mom made me this soup.  And I loved it.  So, this is my soup crush now.  I’ve made it twice in the last couple weeks, and my kids love it, too.  Which is always a good thing.

To make it even easier, I used some rotisserie chicken meat one of the times I made it.   (Love that stuff!)  The recipe calls for raw chicken, but you can substitute the rotisserie chicken meat if that helps you out.
