Quick Chick Soup [Sep. 30th, 2006|02:01 pm]
What Ya Got Cookin'


[music |The Cure - Open]

I was sick, wanted chicken noodle soup, so i went pantry-raiding:

2 Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts
1 Carton Vegetable Broth (or chicken, we just happened to have vegetable, and it worked well)
1/2 Lg White Onion Chopped
Bacon Bits (optional; i wanted a little fat and slightly different depth of flavor)
1 Hand-full of Frozen Edemame (or any frozen vegetable, this happened to be what we had and it worked fantastically)
1 Hand-full of Frozen Egg Noodles (really, any noodle works, again, this is what we had)
To Taste:
Black Pepper

Add chicken to stock and bring to a rapid boil. Add remainder of ingrediants and return to a boil for 15-20 minutes, or until noodles are of a consistency you like (i like them a little firm). Let cool (i burned my tongue), and serve. The rapid boiling romoves the bulk of the water, distilling the flavors, making it easier to taste when you're sick.

Makes 2ish servings.

Personally I'm addicted to celary in chicken soup. But you probably had that with the vegetable base broth anyway. Did you know the thyme helps sore throats? And if you throw in some parsley it adds like a full fleet of all your vitamins. Good for when you're sick. :/
