Quick Chicken Soup
My husband was not feeling well the other day so I whipped together a little feel good soup for him and it was great. Chicken Noodle soup is one of my all time favorites.
1 Medium Onion, chopped
1 large carrot, peeled and chopped
1 stalk celery, chopped
1 chicken breast, diced
1-2 cloves garlic, minced
4 cups homemade chicken broth (or a good quality, low sodium purchased stock)
soup seasoning mix (I get one from Serbia with dehydrated celery, parsnips, carrots, herbs and salt) or salt and pepper
1 cup cauliflower florets
4-6 oz pasta (I used Pappardelle in this one)
Fresh parsley, chopped
Saute the onion, carrots and celery until onions are translucent. Add the chicken and saute a few minutes longer until the chicken gets a little color. Add in the garlic, stock and seasoning mix and cook over medium low heat for 10 minutes then add cauliflower and pasta and cook until pasta is done (7-10 minutes), remove from heat and stir in parsley. Serve.
Oh and I forgot to add some sage. Sage if very good in chicken soup.
