So, it’s that time of year again. As the summer ends, school begins. School is where all the mini humans congregate to learn, socialize, and spread germs. It’s been about 3 weeks, and my mini human is sick already. She stayed home today because she was feeling under the weather, so while she spent a big part of the day snuggled in bed, I made soup.
Now, my family will tell you, I’m not a shining star in the kitchen. To be honest, it’s usually my Love, my Gram, or my Sis that cook in our house. I have a few good (easy) recipes though, and I thought I’d share. This is my super simple chicken soup. It’s quick to prepare, and easy to cook. My mini human loves it, and when I make it, she always have more helpings than usual. I serve it with pineapple juice and ginger ale, though, not mixed together. 😉
For a soup pot, I use 2 regular sized boxes of chicken broth, about 2 lbs of whatever boneless skinless chicken is on sale, a small bag of frozen veggies, and a small bag of white potatoes. The chicken gets chopped in about 1/2″ chunks and tossed in the pot with 2 boxes of chicken broth & 1 box filled with water. I put that on medium to cook the chicken a bit while I chop the potatoes. When the potatoes are done, I turn the heat down to medium low, and add the potatoes and frozen veggies (usually the carrot and pea mix), and potatoes. I cover it, and leave it alone for about an hour. Then, serve and season to taste. I like a pinch of salt, and my Love likes a sprinkle of pepper. Enjoy!
