Because I had so many people request the recipe from facebook, I decided to share one of my favorite fall/winter recipes, a hearty chicken soup.
Now, there are several optional ingredients and a few staple ingredients that I use every time. A good soup can begin with either chicken stock or vegetable stock. I typically like the brands you can get in the card board box either Emerils, Imagine Creations Organics, or Pacific Natural Foods Organic. You can find these at both Trader Joe’s or Wholefoods, two of my favorite grocery shopping stores.
Add a variety of cut veggies such as carrots, celery, broccoli, snap peas, and I even added seaweed this time. It was a special seaweed from my accupuncturist, but I have used Nori seaweed. Just break it into bite sized pieces before you place it in the soup.
Hearty Chicken Soup
1 rotisserie chicken breast
1 box of chicken broth or vegetable broth
1c of chopped celery
1c chopped carrots
1c brown rice
2-4 pieces of Nori Seaweed (optional but tasty)
Season the soup with pepper to taste. You can even add an Italian blended herb seasoning for a slightly different taste.
Let simmer together for about 10-15 minutes on a medium low temperature. Increase the temperature for two minutes just before serving.
Enjoy this hearty and healthy chicken soup plus much more!
