80gmedium grain rice
20mloil (for sautéing veggies)
salt and black pepper to taste
Place chicken legs in a large pot and cover it with water. Put the pot on the high heat, add a small pinch of salt and let the water boil. Get rid of all the foam on the surface. Add a bay leaf and lower heat. Cook chicken broth for 30 minutes on the low heat.
Meanwhile, let’s prepare all the vegetables. Cube peeled potatoes; chop nicely an onion and grate carrot using coarse grater.
Take a skillet and heat oil in it. Sauté onion with carrot for 3 minutes until soft and golden on the medium heat.
When you had broth simmering for 30 minutes, you can add sautéed vegetables and rice to the pot. However, before using rice in the recipe, please, rinse it thoroughly (until you have clear drained water).
Let the broth get to boil again and have broth simmer for about 5 minutes before adding cubed potatoes. Get rid of the bay leaf.
In 10 minutes, take out cooked through chicken legs out of the soup. Separate meat from the bone, shred it or cut it into small pieces. Add it again to the pot with your soup.
Season soup to your taste with salt and freshly ground pepper. Add chopped fresh parsley. Check the doneness of potatoes and rice. Let soup simmer for last 5 minutes, cover the pot with a lid and set aside. Let it sit for 10 minutes before serving for all the flavors to incorporate to the broth.
