CHICKEN SOUP FOR THE SOUL

Since my husband and one of my sons are under the weather, I decided to make some homemade chicken soup. It's not the "traditional" kind in any sense, but I just use the veggies that I know they are going to eat.

I just boil my boneless skinless chicken breast with half an onion, and when it's done I save half of the stock and add a big can of store bought chicken stock to it. I cut up the chicken and added carrots, zucchini, three red potatoes, one can of Italian stewed tomatoes, and a handful of penne pasta. I let it simmer until the potatoes and carrots were cooked.

Simple & hearty

Yeap, nothing like a steaming bowl of soup to warm tummies especially when one is under the weather.

That looks so good. I am on this kick right now, trying to stop buying so many processed foods and making my own from scratch. Not easy when I am not a person who loves to cook, but I want to do better for my family so I am doing it. Made yummy Lasagna last night and today it is a black/bean, sweet potato & salsa chicken. Oh is it yummy!
