Escarole & Rice Soup with Chicken

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/escarole_rice_soup_with_chicken.html

From EatingWell:  January/February 1993

Escarole adds an assertive bite to an Italian-themed soup that would otherwise be just another chicken and rice soup.

6 servings | Active Time: 20 minutes | Total Time: 45 minutes

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Heat oil in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add onion and cook, stirring, until golden, 2 to 3 minutes. Add escarole and 1 cup broth. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer for 15 minutes.
  2. Stir in the remaining 6 cups broth and bring to a simmer. Add rice and simmer, covered, for 10 minutes. Add chicken and tomatoes and cook, covered, until the rice is tender and the chicken is no longer pink inside, about 5 minutes longer. Season with salt and pepper. Ladle into bowls and top with cheese.
