Chicken soup

19 Dec

It’s a recipe day. When you’re feeling yucky, one of the best things to help you feel better is a big bowl of chicken noodle soup.

In a pot place 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts(because that’s what is in the freezer), an onion that has been blended into pulp(because the child will eat onions if he can’t see them), some chopped carrots and celery(big enough he can pick them out if he wants) and cover with water. Add some salt and pepper. And if you have one, steal a seasoning packet from a thing of ramen noodles. Save the noodles for later if you want.

Bring to a boil over medium heat and cook, stirring occasionally for 20 minutes. Remove the chicken breasts and shred. Return to pot with the ramen noodles and heat until noodles are done.

If you’re feeling ambitious, after starting the pot on to cook, in a separate bowl place a cup of flour and a pinch of salt. Add a lightly beaten egg and mix. Forming a dough. Roll out thin(about 1/8th an inch) and cut into pieces with a pizza cutter. Let sit while the chicken cooks. When adding the shredded chicken back to the pot and your noodle pieces and return to a boil. Cook until the noodles are tender, sometimes it’s 5 minutes, sometimes it’s 10, depends on how thin you rolled the noodles.

If you don’t want noodles, mix a cup of baking mix(Bisquick) with almost 3/4 cup milk. You want a stiff dough. When adding back the shredded chicken, drop tablespoon size pieces of dough on top of your soup. Bring back to a boil and cook until they are done through, about 20 minutes.

Either way, this is really good and even my picky eater will eat it. As long as I don’t tell him it has onions in it. Enjoy!

  • Today I’m grateful to talk to an old friend about how things were. I’m grateful to know that I’m not okay at the moment, but it’ll pass. Grateful I can keep to myself so that my bad attitude doesn’t come out sideways.

Night all. LOVES
