CHICKEN SOUP


Cold and flu season is upon us.  This is my version of a simple soup to make you feel better.

Chicken . Dice 1 large onion
Chop 3-4 stalks of celery
Chop & peel 4-5 large carrots
Mince 4-5 cloves of garlic
Peel and mince 2 inches of ginger
Chop handful of parsley and cilantro, or other desired herbs.

Add ¼ cup of olive oil to a big soup pot. Cook on medium-high the onion, ginger, garlic, and celery until soft (about 4 minutes).
Salt and pepper chicken and add whole chicken to pot. Brown all sides.
Cover with quart chicken stock and enough water to cover the chicken. Add the carrots and 2 bay leaves.
Bring soup to a boil then turn heat down to simmer. Cook until chicken is done (about 20 minutes).
When chicken is thoroughly cooked, remove the meat from the bones and put back into pot.
Add chopped parsley and cilantro.
Add red pepper flakes if you would like some spice.
Enjoy and let the healing begin!
