Chicken and Rice Soup

This recipe is so is one of my favorites!  I added thyme this time because I have seen quite a few recipes that had thyme in them.  It definately added a great flavor.  This one is easy and yummy!

Olive oil
1 medium onion, chopped
3 garlic cloves, minced
3 medium carrots chopped
4 celery stalks chopped
1/2 tsp dried thyme
2 bay leaves
2 quarts chicken broth
3 cup of water
3 cup long grain white rice
5 cans chicken breasts

In a pot over medium heat add the olive oil and vegetables and thyme.  Cook over medium heat for 6 minutes or until veggies are tender.  Add chicken broth and water and bay leaf.  Bring to a boil then add the rice and chicken.  Turn to low and cook for an hour.  Enjoy!
