My apologies to everyone for the somewhat uninspired post today…I am sick at home today, spending my hours drinking tea and eating chicken soup. My current obsession is Good Earth Tea. I love it because it is a caffeine-free herbal tea that is still very rich tasting.
I thought today I would share an easy recipe for chicken soup…one that either you can make when you are feeling under the weather, or someone else in the house with less cooking experience can pull together for you when you don’t feel like cooking. It is very simple, so it is kind to a sore tummy.
- 1 carton of low sodium chicken broth
- 1 carrot
- 2 celery
- 1 onion, diced
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- pre-cooked chicken breast, shredded
- 1.5 cups elbow macaroni
- 1 teaspoon sea salt (only if using low sodium broth)
- a few grinds of pepper
- Olive oil
Heat about 1 teaspoon of olive oil in the bottom of a large pot. Saute onion and garlic, constantly stirring until translucent. Add broth and bring to boil. While waiting for the broth to boil, chop carrot and celery into small pieces. Toss into broth. Cover and cook on low heat for about 45 minutes to an hour, or until the veggies are soft. Toss the macaroni and chicken into the broth, and cook for length of time indicated on the package. Add the salt and pepper to taste.
