Chicken Soup A La Alexis

Chicken Soup A La Alexis

"Mommy I want to make some chicken soup."

"OK."

"And I want it to have big chunks of chicken."

"Anything else?"

"And salt, pepper, peas, corn, onion and leeks."

"Is that all?"

"Oh and egg noodles!"

"Sounds good."

"And when we get finished I want you to take a picture of my soup and put it on your 'bog'!"

So we made some soup just as she asked and I'm sharing it with you now. Why stifle creativity? ;o)

What You'll Need:
Extra virgin olive oil
1 small onion, chopped
1 small carrot, chopped
1 leek, chopped
A pinch of sea salt
Freshly ground black pepper
2 boneless skinless chicken breast
At least 1 quart of chicken broth
1 cup of frozen peas
1 cup of frozen corn
1-2 cups of whole grain egg noodles

Sauté onion, carrot and leek with a pinch of sea salt until onions are tender. Add chicken breasts and chicken broth and cook until chicken is done through. Remove from soup and cut the chicken into chunks and then return to broth. Add peas and corn and cook until they are unfrozen (about 5 more minutes). Add noodles and cook until tender. Serve immediately.

Notes: Thyme would be a good addition to this soup. Any other veggies you wanted to add in would be good as well.

Adorable story. Especially impressive that your daughter requested leeks.

When I make soups I usually put leeks in them, so I guess she thinks that's a standard ingredient. I'm surprised she didn't ask for mushrooms because I usually throw those into the mix too. Of course she'll tell you she doesn't like mushrooms, but she always eats them in soup so I guess it's just one of those things. :o)
