I was highly disappointed in this recipe after reading so many fabulous reviews. I thought it was very bland, and really nothing special at all, even with extra thyme sprigs and additional spices. I ate my portion, chucked the rest, and gave my husband an omelet for dinner instead. Won't make again.
Chicken, Sausage, and Rice Soup

Great weeknight soup! Use medium/sweet turkey italian sausage if you don't like the spice (we use the spicy!). Too much rice for us, so I doubled the reciped, without doubling the rice. Don't forgo the fresh thyme - it really makes the recipe! Made it for the in-laws the day after Christmas with some crusty french bread for dipping & a chopped salad...it was a hit with everyone. Husband always takes leftovers for lunch for the next couple of days! Freezes well, too!

Loved this recipe! It's my new stand-by. We added three leaves of kale (chopped up) to sneak some leafy greens into the week.

It was OK - a bit bland. Nice to have a recipe you can make with what's on hand (and in the freezer), but nothing special. We will finish off the double recipe I made, but won't make it again.

One of our family favorites. Hot turkey sausage perks it up...but I guess on the whole we like a mild tasting chicken soup. It is easy and filling and better than a traditional chicken noodle. I make it in big batches...frequently.

There is no need to look for another chicken soup recipe- this is it! But, you have to disclose that there is sausage it it. I use regular italian sausage, not hot, I loved the flavor of the boneless chicken thighs, too. Everyone goes NUTS over this recipe! I always double it, and, in a few days, if I'm still in the cooking mood, I make another. Yum! No one complains....
