Okay, so Amanda is not feeling well today….been in school 1 week and 3 days and has a nasty cold!!!! YUCK!!!! Anyway, in efforts to make her feel better and to put me to work while she slept the afternoon away….I made her a chicken noodle soup:) After all, soup heals everything…or, at least I think so!!!!
Chicken Noodle Soup….MY VERSION
Roast chicken tenderloins in the oven at 375 for about 20 minutes. (Season the chicken with salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder and thyme…..drizzle with olive oil)
7 to 8 chicken tenderloins
onion powder &
thyme…sprinkle these over the chicken tenderloins and drizzle with extra virgin olive oil…
While the chicken is roasting, dice your onion, bell paper, carrots, parsley and celery.
1 medium onion
1 green bell pepper
2 tbs. of parsley
2 stalks of celery, plus the hearts
Sauté the vegetable mixture in 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil for about 5 minutes. (Don’t forget to season each addition with salt and pepper.) The onions will be translucent and the vegetables will be tender. Add 2 chicken bouillon cubes to the vegetable mixture and add one can of cream of chicken…fat free, of course and one can of cream of celery…fat free also. Stir the vegetables to make sure all is coated with the soup mixture. Once all diced vegetables are added and stirred into the soup mixture, add one can of drained and rinsed cannellini beans to the soup. Add 5 cups of low sodium chicken broth to the vegetables and beans and then add 1 bay leaf.
When the chicken has cooled, shred it into small pieces then add to the soup.
Let the soup simmer on low heat for about 20 minutes so that all of the ingredients can come together. Just before serving, add 1 cup of broken angel hair pasta or any small pasta or egg noodle that you choose. Cook about 6 to 8 minutes and add fresh chopped parsley and 1/2 cup of frozen peas at the very end. It makes a YUMMY chicken noodle soup and HEALS the soul and whatever else is ailing you!!! Here’s hoping that it helps my sweet Amanda get over her cold:)
