Chicken Rice Soup & how Old Bay saved the day

Did you ever make a recipe that the end product was good, but not great, but you learned a tip or technique so the recipe was totally worth it? hmmm....maybe that's just me.

I don't even want to re-post the recipe here, I really didn't follow the recipe from, but the addition of 1 tsp Old Bay Seasoning really saved the soup!

This Chicken Rice Soup was a great home cookin' style soup that had great flavor because of the addition of Old Bay. But of course, I had to screw with the recipe and decided to cook the brown rice IN the soup (because I didn't feel like washing another pan) and screwed up the texture of the rice. I totally overcooked the rice, and it was mushy. But no, worries, the Old Bay saved the day and gave it a great flavor undertone that made a soup that might have been boring to really flavorful. Give it a try the next time you're whipping up some soup!

  1. I was born and raised in Maryland. Old Bay is a basic staple there! We still use it here in Florida. Try it in tuna fish.. it's GREAT!!
