When the weather forecast was predicting a blizzard for today it put me in the mood for a healthy, warm soup. I decided this morning to make chicken soup without noodles. I was in the mood for something really healthy without the extra carbs. And I thought this would be a great way to use some of the homemade chicken broth I made recently.
This soup was easy to put together and the flavor was really good. I enjoyed the taste of the herbs in the chicken broth. I like the richer flavor in the homemade broth and I feel good eating it knowing it is loaded with nutrients. I had a bowl for supper, put a couple bowls in the refrigerator for lunches this week and I had a couple bowls left to freeze for future meals.
No noodle chicken soup
2 chicken breasts, cubed
6 cups of homemade chicken broth (click on this link for recipe)
1 tbsp. oil (I used avocado)
1 tsp. garlic salt
2 cloves of fresh garlic, minced
3 or 4 carrots, chopped
2 stalks of celery, chopped
1/2 onion, diced
Cook chicken on medium heat in a pan with oil. Pour about a half cup of chicken broth into soup pot and add all vegetables and garlic salt. Saute for about 5 to 7 minutes until vegetables are tender. Add the rest of the chicken broth and cooked chicken to soup pot. Simmer for about 30 minutes on low to medium heat.
