Evan has relapsed. Home from school with sore throat, fever, and cannot swallow. Um, sounds familiar. We are going back to his Dr at 5 pm. Third trip in three weeks. I had not driven since I took myself to the Dr last week. As I approached the car, there were cobwebs around the wheel wells and tires. Seriously. Use em, or lose em!
So, I went out to buy the ingredients to make him some Mommas Chicken Soup. Very good tasting, easy on the throat, with curative properties. Recipe included:
2 chicken boneless breast or 6 boneless skinless thigh meat
2 Cartons Organic Chicken Broth
1 C diced celery
1 C diced onion
2 C sliced carrots
1/2 bag frozen spinach
1 Bag of Trader Joe cooked Brown Rice
In large stock pot, add olive oil and cook the veggies over med-high heat until the vegetables are soft. Cut up the chicken into bite size pieces and add to pot. Stir and cook for 5-8 minutes. Add spinach, rice and broth. Bring to boil and them immediately cut back the heat to low. Season with salt, pepper and red chili flakes if you like a little heat. Skim the foam if any appears and serve. Do not contaminate with germs by tasting with a used spoon!
