Sick or not I still felt like cooking when my boyfriend came over with my grocery items. In 15 minutes I whipped up a yummy chicken noodle soup that tasted like it took a couple hours to make, and thanks to my ipad I am able to share this very simple recipe with you now, sick from my bed. I hope it comforts you as much as it did me the next time you are feeling under the weather.
Easy Chicken Soup
32 oz Low Sodium Chicken Broth
1 Fully cooked Rotisserie Chicken
1 cup unprepared Pastina or White Rice
2 or 3 Tablespoons White Wine
Couple shakes each of onion powder, garlic powder, garlic salt and black pepper
Dash of salt
Squeeze of lemon juice
Cook Pastina or rice according to instructions. While pasta is cooking bring chicken broth to a boil covered with all the spices, salt, wine and lemon. Pull chunks of meat from the chicken and add to the broth once it comes to a boil, reduce to simmer and recover. When the pasta is done strain and add to the chicken soup.
Serve with a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese and a couple turns of cracked pepper in each bowl.
