Start with 6 cups of Chicken Broth and add more as needed. I prefer a thicker soup and found that 8 cups was perfect for me. If you like it thinner just add more broth or water.

If you are making this to have leftovers you may need to add more broth or water before reheating. The longer it sits in the fridge, the more liquid the rice will absorb.
