As soon as there is even a sign of someone getting sick in my house, it’s off to the store to get some chicken. I don;t necessarily believe that chicken soup cures all, but it is incredibly soothing for the soul. The best part is that its super easy to make! Here is my go-to recipe
6 pieces of chicken (preferably the bottom half, on the bone)
2 large carrots
4 celery stalks
1 large onion
5 garlic cloves
Pasta of your choice, cooked per package direction
Place chicken in a pot and cover fully with water
Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. Let simmer for 15 minutes, periodically skimming the foam and debris off the top.
Add all of the veggies, bring back to a boil, turn down the heat and let simmer for about an hour.
Remove the chicken and veggies from the pot. Discard the onion and garlic. Chop the chicken, celery and carrots and put them back into the pot.
Pour the soup into a bowl, add some pasta, season with salt and pepper. We love adding some red pepper flakes to it.
Wishing everyone a very healthy winter season ahead!
