Chicken and Rice Soup with Crispy Garlic Butter

A tasty chicken and rice soup served with crispy fried garlic and garlic browned butter!

Garlic is one of my favourite foods and it can be used in a number of ways from raw, to sauteed, roasted, and it can even be fried until crispy. When I came across a recipe for a chicken and rice soup that was garnished with crispy fried garlic and garlic browned butter, I just had to make it! This is a pretty simple chicken and rice soup where chicken and rice are simmered in broth until the rice is tender and the chicken is cooked, before it’s shredded or diced. It’s seasoned with onion, thyme and parmesan cheese along with spinach and a hit of lemon juice for freshness. The star of the show, the crispy fried garlic and garlic browned butter comes from thinly slicing a lot of garlic before frying it in plenty of butter until the garlic is golden brown and crispy and the butter is cooked until it starts to turn a light golden brown, infusing it with all sorts of amazing garlic flavour! Yum! This soup is perfect comfort food for cool Fall days, or any other days for that matter!
