You probably know. Your mom knows and for sure, your grandma knows. Chicken soup heals colds, flu, pains and even, they say, the pains of the soul. And it is scientifically proved. Yep!
But of course, here I am talking about a homemade chicken soup, not a store-bought one full of bad oil and sodium. Choose fresh ingredients, organic as much as possible, use good oils like olive or coconut oil and if you want to use noddles, choose the one made with rice, instead of wheat flour.
This soup is anti-inflammatory, powerful and so delicious! I like to serve with kale chips as topping, yum!
Here it goes my favorite recipe!
1 pound or 3 cups chicken breast (you can cut into squares or you can shred the chicken)
1 to 2 cups rice, rice noodles or quinoa
4 cups chicken broth (if you don't make at home, choose for a good brand, like this one here)
3 tablespoons olive oil or coconut oil
1 onion, sliced
2 garlic cloves, pressed
3 big carrots, peeled and sliced
How to make:
Add the chosen oil and then the sliced onion, saute for 6 minutes. Then add the garlic and saute for 2 minutes.
Add the carrots and cook for about 6-8 minutes. Then add the chicken and cook for 10-12 minutes.
Season with salt, black pepper and ginger. Add the rice, rice noodles or quinoa. Mix well.
Add the chicken broth and close the pan with the lid and let it cook in medium heat for 20 minutes.
Serve immediately. You can use kale chips as topping or Parmesan cheese if you aren't congested.
