Chicken and Rice Soup with Avocado is the perfect new comfort food soup for when someone in your house is under the weather!  I was asked by Fosters Farms to do another recipe for their New Comfort Food campaign (check out my first recipe for Chicken Picatta here!)  

I was excited to partner with them again because I always use Fosters Farms Simply Raised Fresh chicken so it’s easy to come up with a recipe using their product for you!  (I only recommend products I truly love and use regularly in my kitchen.  Rest assured while I’m being compensated for this recipe, please know all of the opinions and comments are my true feelings.)

I use Foster Farms Simply Raised Fresh chicken because its raised locally to where its sold and never uses steroids, added hormones or antibiotics EVER in the chicken production. Because the chicken is produced locally I know that it is fresh.


What exactly is the definition of a New Comfort Food?

  • Foods that are free of additives, preservatives, antibiotics and hormones.
  • Recipes that are made with local seasonal fresh ingredients.
  • Recipes that use just a few ingredients in them.
  • Quick, easy steps and fast prep time

This recipe for Chicken and Rice Soup with Avocado fits the definition of a new comfort food.  Its a healthier option than a lot of comfort foods and is made with fresh ingredients in about a half an hour.  How can you go wrong with great tasting foods made with just a handful of fresh ingredients in such a short time?

The addition of avocado to the traditional chicken soup adds a smooth creamy bite to your soup.  It also makes this soup a great choice for a weeknight dinner that your family will request when they are feeling under the weather AND any time they want a nice bowl of flavorful soup.
