1 carton (32 oz. or 4 cups) reduced sodium chicken broth

1/4 cup uncooked long grain brown rice

1 lbs. boneless skinless chicken breasts, cooked and cubed

2 cups fresh spinach, chopped

1 medium sweet apple (We used Pink Lady or Honeycrisp apples.), peeled, core removed and chopped

This is a hearty soup from India that tastes great with bread or our Peach and Yellow Tomato Gazpacho soup.

This recipe is a little higher in sodium. If you're on a low sodium diet, you should consider another option.

1. Chop the vegetables and have them prepared.

2. Heat a large, non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Once it’s hot, lightly coat with buttery cooking spray, then add the olive oil. Stir in the celery, onion and carrots and cook for 5-7 minutes, until tender.

3. Stir in the mushrooms and garlic, then cook for another minute.

4. Stir in the flour, curry powder, cayenne pepper and turmeric. Cook while stirring for 2 minutes. Stir in the broth, raise heat to medium high and bring to a boil, stirring constantly.

5. Once it’s boiling, add the rice. Reduce the heat to simmer and cover the pan for 45-50 minutes or until the rice is tender.

6. While the rice is cooking, heat another non-stick pan over medium heat. Once it’s hot, lightly coat the pan with buttery cooking spray and cook the cubed chicken for 9-12 minutes, until it’s browned.

7. When the rice is tender, stir in the chicken, spinach, apple, salt, pepper and thyme. Raise heat to medium, then cook uncovered for 4-6 minutes until it’s heated through and the spinach is wilted.

8. Divide into 5 servings. Top each serving with a tablespoon of sour cream. You can also sprinkle a tablespoon of green onion or chives over the top.

Yield: 5 Servings

This is a Freezer Friendly Recipe!

You can freeze individual portions for easy re-heating later. DO NOT freeze with the sour cream.

Microwave for approximately 3-5 minutes, keeping the container open a little to allow steam to escape. Add a tablespoon of fat free sour cream over the top only after it's been re-heated.
