  • Summary

    This is a really quick version of chicken soup made to mimic a traditional long-simmered soup. Time permitting, the latter is better. But, with a few basic pantry items, you can prepare this version in about 10 minutes. Served with salad and toast, it also makes a great lunch.From the book "Mad Hungry," by Lucinda Scala Quinn (Artisan Books).

    Ingredients

    • 1 tablespoon olive oil
    • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
    • 3 scallions (both white and green parts), thinly sliced
    • 1 large carrot, peeled and chopped
    • 1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley leaves
    • 1 quart (4 cups) homemade chicken broth or best-quality store-bought chicken broth
    • 1 cup cooked, shredded chicken meat (leftover or 1 chicken breast half, sauteed or steamed)
    • 1/2 cup cooked rice
    • Coarse salt and freshly ground black pepper
