Lazy Chicken Soup
Now it's back to bed.
Lazy Chicken Soup
- 1 lb chicken meat, shredded (Trader Joe's has fantastic pre-cooked chicken breasts that work really well here)
- 5-6 carrots, peeled and cut into coins
- 1 package of mushrooms, cleaned and sliced
~ 1 tsp dried thyme
~ 1 tsp dried rosemary
~ 1 tsp dried basil
~ A couple pinches of garlic powder
- 1 bay leaf
~ 1 tbs extra virgin olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste
- Cooked pasta of choice (I think the more fun shape the better. Today I opted for farfalle, or bow-tie shaped pasta.)
Heat the oil in the pan and add the mushrooms, frying them until they become tender. Add the chicken stock (you can add additional water here if you'd like to make more, or you can leave it as is), dry herbs and carrots. Cover the pot and let it all cook on medium low-heat for about an hour, or until the carrots are soft and cooked through. Add the chicken and let it cook for an additional 30 minutes or so. To serve, add a scoop of pasta to the bowl and then ladle the soup on top. If you add the noodles to the soup, you'll end up with soggy mushy noodles floating in your soup the next day.
