Directions

Step 1

Cook bacon in large saucepot until crisp, about 5 minutes. Remove bacon from saucepot. Set aside and reserve drippings.

Step 2

Cook leek, squash, celery and corn in reserved drippings over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are tender, about 5 minutes. Add water and bring to boil then reduce heat to medium low and cook 10 minutes. Remove 2 cups (500 ml) of broth and vegetables and set aside.

Step 3

Stir in Knorr® Homestyle Stock – Reduced Sodium Chicken and Knorr® Sidekicks® Rice – Harvest Chicken. Cover and cook 7 minutes or until rice is tender.

Step 4

Meanwhile, process reserved 2 cups (500 ml) broth and vegetables in blender until smooth; stir into saucepot and cook until heated through.

Step 5

Knorr® Chef Tip: Nothing beats fresh vegetables — but frozen or canned vegetables save time and can be just as nutritious. Look for no-added-sugar, -fat or -salt varieties.
