Cathy Schneider of DeKalb, Illinois, shared her family-favorite recipe for a chicken soup that has just enough twists to keep it interesting: sweet potato, green beans, brown rice and fresh-tasting dill. (If you prefer less dill flavor, just reduce the amount. The soup will still be delicious.)


  • 2 large skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, cut in 1-inch cubes (about 1 pound)
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 2 quarts chicken broth (8 cups)
  • 1/2 cup uncooked brown rice
  • 1 large sweet potato, peeled and diced (about 2 cups)
  • 3 medium carrots, peeled and thinly sliced (1 1/2 cups)
  • 1 cup frozen cut green beans
  • 2 small bunches green onions, chopped (about 1 cup)
  • 1 tablespoon dried dill weed
  • Salt-free seasoning (such as Mrs. Dash®)
  • Salt
  • Ground black pepper


  1. In a 4- to 6-quart Dutch oven, brown the chicken in hot vegetable oil over medium heat until no longer pink. Remove from Dutch oven; set aside.
  2. Add chicken broth to Dutch oven, bring to boiling. Add brown rice. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, 10 minutes.
  3. Add sweet potato and simmer, covered, 10 minutes.
  4. Add browned chicken, the carrots, and green beans and simmer, covered, 10 minutes.
  5. Add green onions and dill weed. Simmer, covered, 10 minutes or until vegetables and rice are tender. Season to taste with salt free seasoning, salt, and pepper.
