  • 1 tsp. Real Salt
  • 1 tsp. dried thyme
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1/2 tsp. ground black pepper

  • 6 c. chicken stock
  • 2 c. water
  • 1 c. brown rice or orzo

  • In a large soup pot, melt the coconut oil. Add the onion and garlic and saute over medium heat until the onion is translucent.
  • Add the stock, water, salt, thyme, bay leaf, black pepper, and cayenne pepper. Bring to a boil.
  • Add the rice or orzo. Return to a boil. Cook until the pasta or rice is al dente.
  • Turn the heat down to medium-low. Add the shredded chicken.
