Eat Fresh!

Really Good 30 Minute Chicken Soup

Chicken Soup

So yesterday I bought a rotisserie chicken from Costco.  Ella ate something else, Shrimp Salad.  So I had plenty of chicken left over today.  So I decide to make chicken soup.  It turned out really good.  It was pretty fast also because I didn’t have to roast the chicken like I normally would.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.  Keandra liked it too.

30 Minute Delicious Chicken Soup

       Roast Chicken Breast (Diced)

       28oz of Chicken Broth  (Reserve about 4 oz to make a slurry w/Cornstarch)

       1 tablespoon of Cornstarch

       Medium Onion (Diced)

       2 Celery Stalks (Diced)

       I Green Bell Pepper (Diced)

       2 cloves of Garlic (Minced)

       4oz of French Style Green Beans (Cut in thirds)

       Kosher Salt

       Fresh Cracked Black Pepper

       Fresh Parsley Chiffonode

       Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO)

Equipment

       Dutch Oven

       Wooden Spoon

       Cutting Board

       Knife

Instructions

Place the Dutch Oven over a medium heat.  Once Dutch Oven is hot, add 3-4 hits of the Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO).  Add the diced Bell Pepper, Celery.  Salt and pepper them and stir.  Let the vegetables sauté for about 1 minute before adding the diced onion.  Stir and let sauté for another 4 minutes or so until onions become translucent.   Add the  diced Roasted Chicken Breast and stir.  Let this cook for about 4 minutes, stirring occasionally.

With your spoon, clear a small spot at the bottom of the Dutch Oven and add the minced garlic.  Let it cook for 30 seconds or so before stirring.  Add the French Green Beans and stir.  Let them cook for about a minute.  Add Chicken Broth and stir.

Bring this soup to a boil and let it cook for about 7 minutes or so stirring occasionally. Add the Parsley Chiffonade.  Stir in the cornstarch slurry and let the soup come to a boil.

Lower the heat and simmer for about 15 minutes or until soup thickens.  Salt and pepper to taste.

Serve.  It’s really good.
