Chicken Soup

Share it Please
It's that time of year again where germs and viruses abound. I've gotten a cold, unfortunately. :\ My nose is stuffed up, I have a terrible sounding cough and for the past few days I've just been feeling kind of "blah". Does anyone else get like that when they're sick? Even worse, I'm haven't been allowed to cook in the kitchen for the past couple days! No worries, though, I'm allowed to bake/cook again. :)

I reused this picture so don't be confused when I say I added noodles to the recipe ;)
Anyways, I've been relying on soup lately as a quick and easy meal that makes me feel slightly better. One of my favorite soups is chicken soup. We had some homemade turkey broth that we stored in the freezer, so I used that as the base of my soup. And I used brown rice noodles instead of rice or potatoes. These adjustments made it about 1000 times better, so I highly recommend the noodles.

Yes, this is a re-post, but I thought it'd be perfect since colds and other illnesses are floating around right now. I hope you all stay healthy and have a great Thanksgiving!


3 c. stock or water (I use chicken stock)
1/2 T. minced dried onion or 1/4 c. fresh onion
1 c. frozen or fresh peas
1/2 c. chopped carrots
1/4 c. finely chopped celery
9 oz. chicken breast, chopped and sauteed (opt.)
1/2 package of brown rice noodles (spaghetti style)
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!

Inquiry of the Day:

What are your Thanksgiving plans?

I'm going to Ohio to visit my grandparents. Fortunately, I still get to bake most of the pies. ;)

    Mmmm... I love chicken soup. I usually have it with rice, but I guess I'll have to try it with noodles; something tells me it's "1000 times better"... ;)

    By the way, whenever someone in my family feels like they're about to catch a cold, we drink water with lemon/lime juice. We ALL drink as much glasses of it as we can, and by the end of the day, no one gets sick. It works everytime. And my dad hasn't catched a cold in about...I don't even remember the last time he catched a cold. And he's usually the one who drinks more water with lemon. Just thought I shared this because it's one of those tricks that are good to know. :)

    1. Wow, thinks for the tip. I'll definitely have to try that next time.
