Easy chicken soup recipe? When I don't feel so good and am wanting chicken soup I make this tasty imposter that tastes like it was simmering all day.
This easy chicken soup recipe is a keeper and tastes just as good. All you need is a rotissiere chicken and 15 minutes.
1-2 tsp oil (I use coconut oil)
small bag baby cut carrots
3 clean celery stalks
1/4 tsp dried parsley
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
3 TBS Better than Bouillon Roasted Chicken Base
Melt the coconut oil in the bottom of a 5 quart stock pot. Chop 1/2 of the bag of carrots and add to the oil. Chop the celery and do the same. Let them saute for 10 minutes. I have added 1/8 - 1/4 cup of water because the pan was dry and it steams the vegetables speeding up the time.
Meanwhile begin removing the chicken and putting on a plate. Keep the juice on the bottom of the chicken container and pour over the sauteeing vegetables.
When the vegetables are almost fork tender add the chicken and sprinkle the parsley, garlic and onion powder over it. Add water until stock pot is 3/4 full or when water is just a few inches over the ingredients. Turn up the heat to high.
Begin with 2 tablespoons of Better than Bouillon and let it dissolve as the soup warms. I usually need 3-4 tablespoons to satisfy my taste buds. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer soup for 5-10 minutes - it is ready to eat.
I dunk soft buttered bread in the soup - so good. Usually I am feeling under the weather when I make this and drink orange juice with it. I feel like myself in no time.
You may add peas, mushrooms or chopped potatoes to your soup, it is up to you.
If you want noodles, cook them seperately and those that want them may add them before eating.
