No matter the influence — here we’ve gone Indian — chicken soup is always comforting. We’ve added rice and a sweet potato to make this a hearty one-dish meal.



small sweet potato
small red onion
skinless, boneless chicken thighs
1/4 cup
long-grain rice
1 1/2 tsp
1 tsp
2 284-ml cans
undiluted chicken broth, or 4 cups chicken bouillon
1 cup
frozen peas
green onions, thinly sliced


  • Peel and thinly slice sweet potato, then cut into strips. Chop red onion. Oil a large saucepan and place over medium heat. When hot, add onion and stir occasionally until it starts to soften, about 3 min.
  • Meanwhile, slice chicken into bite-sized pieces. Then add to onion along with the potato and rice. Sprinkle with curry powder and cumin. Cook, stirring, for 1 min. Pour in broth and 2 soup cans of water. Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Then reduce heat to medium-low and boil gently, while covered, until rice is cooked, 15 to 20 min. Stir in peas and green onions. Taste and add more salt if you like.
