Easy Chicken Soup Recipe
Flu Fighting Chicken Soup Recipe
1 TBS oil (I use avocado oil)
1/ tsp dried thyme
small bag baby cut carrots
3-4 celery stalks
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
3 TBS Better than Bouillon Roasted Chicken Base
Pour oil in the bottom of a 5 quart stock pot and add thyme. Chop 1/2-3/4 of the small bag of carrots and add to the oil. Chop the celery and onion and do the same. Let them saute for 10 minutes.
Meanwhile begin removing the chicken and putting on a plate. Discard the skin. Keep the juice on the bottom of the chicken container and pour over the sauteing 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.
