I can’t believe I’m writing this post on the third day of April but alas it is cold outside! In the midst of my quarter life crisis I decided to pick up and move my entire life from California to New York. Now in theory this was an amazing idea and I knew the only thing I would hate would be the frigid temperatures. Figuring there was only one month of winter left I thought I could make it, but of course Mother Nature has decided to play some trickery here this year.
There is nothing comforting about the cold, but staying inside and making some lovely chicken soup warms me from inside out. I recently made some for my roommate because the cold had taken a toll on her immune system. poor steph.
It’s super easy and healthy and also freezes phenomenally so if it’s not cold where you are now (LUCKY!) make a batch and save it for a rainy day!
What you need:
Boneless/Skinless Chicken Breast/Thighs
Celery, Carrot, Onion chopped small
Herbs (thyme, oregano, basil)
Goya Tomato Seasoning
What you Do:
Season the chicken with your favorite all-purpose seasoning; sear it in the pan you plan to prepare the soup in
Add in the celery, carrot, onions and sauté until translucent (if you have any herbs add them here)
Add the Goya seasoning
Let simmer until water reduces by half, this is where the flavor comes from
Then chop the chicken into chops lower heat and place chicken pieces inside slowly simmer until chicken is cooked through. They key here is to not boil the chicken too hard because that’s how it gets dry
Taste and adjust the seasoning, add salt, pepper, chopped cilantro and lemon juice
You can also get fancy and add other veggies, if you are being lazy frozen veggies work well like 5 minutes after you add the chicken. Also this is just a very basic recipe, take this and run! Play around and add herbs to the broth in the beginning or add cooked rice, pasta, and potatoes at the end.
So easy.so tasty. So warm.
