Prep: 19 minutes; Cook: 37 minutesIf you've never tried escarole, this comforting chicken-and-rice soup will make you fall in love with this mild, slightly bitter green vegetable. The quickest way to get chicken for this soup is to use a deli rotisserie chicken. Both breast halves should give you 2 cups of chopped meat, and you'll have the rest of the chicken for another meal.
