Our friend, Michael, has had a bad case of bronchitis. Ugh! It has been a while since I have been as sick as my poor friend. He felt so bad and of course, was coughing and feverish. What to do? Make Chicken Soup, of course!
I made my soup with potatoes but you can substitute egg noodles for a more traditional Chicken Noodle. I doubled the recipe and kept a pot at home for our family. It was lip-smacking yummy...even not sick. :)
1 teaspoon olive oil
2 cloves of garlic, chopped fine
1/2 cup chopped green onion (about 8) or any sweet onion
1 cup chopped carrots
2 cups cooked chicken, cut into bite size pieces
2 cups cubed frozen hashbrowns or egg noodles
1 tablespoon fresh chopped parsley or 1 teaspoon dried
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 dried bay leaf
5 1/2 cups chicken broth, I use Better than Bouillon. It makes a very rich broth.
Over medium heat, heat oil and add garlic, onion and carrots.
Cook 4 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Stir in rest of the ingredients and bring to a boil. Reduce heat. Cover and simmer at least 10 minutes or until veggies are done. I like to simmer a little longer with the potatoes, about 30 minutes.
This is a quick and easy but delicious and filling recipe.
Makes 4 servings.
