My guy has been under the weather for almost a week--you know it's bad when I've made this soup for him twice already! Quick cooking, completely comforting chicken soup (with broken spaghetti), this recipe is sure to make you feel better fast.
4 cups chicken broth (I make mine from bouillon cubes and water but I only use two cubes with the four cups water so it's not too salty)
1 boneless, skinless chicken breast
1/2 medium white onion, sliced and diced
about 5 baby carrots, thinly sliced
1/2 green bell pepper, thinly sliced and diced (tiny pieces!)
1 teaspoon canola oil
1 serving spaghetti pasta, broken into small pieces, cooked according to package directions
spices (pepper, garlic powder and herbs) to taste
In your soup pot, saute the onion, pepper and carrots in oil for a few minutes over medium heat. Add the broth and bring to a boil. Drop chicken breast in soup, reduce heat. Simmer until chicken is cooked then shred chicken between two forks and put it back in soup. Taste the soup and add spices. Bring the heat back up to a slow boil. Put your cooked pasta in the bottom of the bowl and ladle the chicken soup on top. Serve with crackers and a hug!
