Two of my three kiddos have been diagnosed with walking pneumonia and I have the chicken soup blues. I am all about comforting with food. I can’t increase the antibiotics effects, but I can make them feel a little better by making some rockin’ Salt Rox Chicken Soup. With a great big soup pot that allows a whole chicken and freshly chopped veggies to simmer happily, my face lights up and the humming starts. For this deliciously simple recipe you will need: (oh – and noodles if you want chicken noodle)
– 1 organic chicken, rinsed
– 2 bay leaves
– 1 medium onion, diced
– 3 celery stalks, chopped
– 3 large carrots, chopped
– 2 tbs Salt Rox Ground Sea Salt
– 2 tsp pepper
Put that chicken in the pot, pour all the veggies on top, add the bay leaves, salt and pepper that bad boy, then add water to cover. I know you will be tapping your foot to the boogie woogie blues at this point. Bring the pot to a boil and reduce to a low simmer for two delicious hours. Once time has passed while you are line dancing in the kitchen remove the chicken from the pot and let cool until you can handle it. Pick the meat from the carcass and shred it. Discard the carcass and stir the shredded meat into the soup. If the soup seems a bit too thin for your liking thicken it with ¼ tsp cornstarch and a ½ cup water. Whisk the cornstarch and water together then add it to the soup. Simmer for 10 more minutes and serve!
This soup can be put into containers and frozen for a later date! Specifically designated for comfort zones or traumatic flu needs. Chicken soup conquers all!
