Chicken Soup

Share it Please
We've all been a bit under-the-weather at my house. Mom got sick and it's affecting us all. Bummer, right? Which has made me put off writing this post; which is why it's so late. I'm very sorry. But considering how allergies and viruses are floating around right now, soup is very helpful, so now is the perfect time to post this recipe.

Warm, comforting soup

Whenever I'm feeling a bit "off" I have this chicken soup for lunch. It reminds me so much of homemade chicken soup that I could cry. It warms the soul as well as the cold toes and fingers. The soup also reminds me of the beef soup my grandma used to make. It had linguine noodles, shredded beef, and broth in it and it was oh-so-good. Finger lickin' good, one might say.

Perfect for chilly fall days

I've always registered soup as a food for chilly nights and when a person is sick, but it is for much more than that. It's the perfect quick dinner and is easy enough to prepare on those nights that you really don't feel like cooking. Since the temperature has gone down quite a bit recently, the only thing I've been wanting to eat is soup, soup, and more soup.

Which reminds me, I probably should make some more sometime this week.........

3 c. stock or water (I use chicken stock)
3 small potatoes, peeled and chopped
1/2 T. minced dried onion or 1 1/2 T. fresh onion
1 c. frozen or fresh peas
1/2 c. chopped carrots
9 oz. chicken breast, chopped and sauteed (opt.)
1 1/2 c. white or brown rice (opt. but recommended if not using potatoes)
dash of salt and/or pepper

1. Boil stock.
2. Add chopped potatoes and dried onion.
3. Once potatoes are semi-soft add frozen peas and carrots.
4. Simmer for 15-20 minutes or until potatoes and carrots are soft.
5. Stir in chicken and rice.
6. Ladle into bowls, sprinkle with pepper and/or salt, and enjoy!

Quick and easy

Inquiry of the Day:

Do you have a favorite soup?

I love tomato soup with quesadillas (I don't like grilled cheese), vegetable beef soup, minestrone, potato soup, tortilla soup, basically any kind of soup. Except for cream of mushroom and roasted eggplant. Those I do not like. At all.

By the way, I'm taking a week off all entertainment from technology, which includes blogging. So no new posts until further notice. This'll give me time to come up with new recipe and perfect them. Hopefully, you won't miss me too much. ;) Oh, and I can't help but ask you to go like my Facebook page. Please? Thanks!

    oooh i could go for a bowl right now!! yum!

    1. Thanks! Have a great week and thank you for commenting!

  2. I love cream based soups. Cream of corn, potato, etc. Although I usually use tofu as a cream base instead of dairy. This soup looks great. Enjoy your time off and I am excited to see what new recipes you come up with!

    1. I love cream based soups, too. As long as they're not mushroom! ;) Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!

    mmm i love a good bowl of soup! looks delish!

  4. I love the light in these photos! I wish I had someone to make me some soup right now

    1. Thanks! The trick is to take photos in natural light. Where I live, it works best to take them in the morning when the sun is almost at it's peak in the sky.

      Have a great week! :D


I love comments so please comment often! Thanks!
