Chicken, Escarole & Rice Soup


From EatingWell:  January/February 1999, The EatingWell Diabetes Cookbook (2005)

Based on an Italian classic, this soup blends the goodness of an Old World kitchen with modern convenience.

10 servings, 1 cup each | Active Time: 15 minutes | Total Time: 30-45 minutes



  1. Heat oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add onion and garlic; cook, stirring frequently, until they soften and begin to brown, 5 to 7 minutes. Add escarole and cook, stirring occasionally, until wilted, 2 to 3 minutes. Add broth, tomatoes and rice; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer until the rice is almost tender, 12 to 15 minutes.
  2. Add chicken and simmer until it is no longer pink in the center and the rice is tender, about 5 minutes. Season with pepper. Serve hot, sprinkled with Romano (or Parmesan).
