Chicken Soup

Well, it was not THE flu but Dylan and Emilie got pretty sick last week.
It was time for me to learn to make soup! I usually don't make soups because when I try they end up pretty bland. But I have changed my technique and used - yes i admit to it! - store bought chicken broth. And it was delicious!
Organic chicken broth is recommended for this recipe.

Easy Chicken Soup

1 medium onion, sliced
1 bunch of organic carrots, sliced
1 bunch of organic celery stacks, sliced
6 organic chicken thighs, deboned and cut into 1 inch pieces
2 32-oz store bought organic chicken broth
A few sprigs of parsley (from the garden!), roughly chopped
Salt and pepper to taste

1/2 box of small pasta (kids love alphabet pasta), pre-cooked

In a heavy pot, over medium heat, saute the onion in olive oil, until soft and golden. Add the carrots, celery and saute until they get soft. Add the chicken and saute for another 5 minutes.
Add the broth and simmer on low heat for about 1hour.  At the end, add the parsley and serve.

When serving, add the pasta directly in the bowl of hot soup. If the pasta stays in the soup too long, they will get overcooked.
