Chicken and Rice….this maybe one of my favorite things to eat in the winter- yet it’s never been on the menu.  This is simplicity at its best, comforting, full of flavor, and soothing at the end of s mid winter day. This is often called a “bog” in the south. The rice , because it is cooked in the broth, soaks up a lot of liquid. If you prefer a brothier “bog”add some water when re-heating. It is so flavorful that it will not become diluted. I like to eat mine with a pat of butter and an additional sprinkling of salt. Ingredients: whole, naturally raised chickens, water, kosher salt, black pepper, white rice and lemon juice. Garnished w. Bright salad of parsley, chives and thinly sliced celery. 13. Per quart served w. Bread. Gluten-free
