Chicken Soup

This A.M. I woke up feeling lousy with a cold but took comfort in the fact that I have yummy chicken noodle soup to reheat from last night. I started feeling congested and achy yesterday at work and by the time 6pm rolled around I was ready to curl up in my bed, dizzy and sneezing, with my head throbbing. My boyfriend asked me what he could bring me and I gave him a very simple grocery list: rotisserie chicken, chicken broth, Pastina and a box of tissues. (Encase you haven't heard of Pastina it is a tiny pasta made by Ronzoni that is in the shape of a star. My mom used to make half a box of Pastina, divide it in two portions and then while it was still hot throw in 2 slices of American cheese, a tablespoon of Parmesan and a dallup of butter per portion, mix it all up a serve it to my brother and I when we were growing up. We loved it.)

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
Parmesan cheese

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.
