Sorry that I haven’t posted a recipe for a few weeks. So, what do you feel like eating when you’re sick? I like comfort food, carbs, like a bowl of elbow noodles with butter. My daughter absolutely loves chicken soup when she’s sick. It does seem to be the favorite of most people. Here’s a recipe that is great.
Recipe for Lynn’s Chicken Soup:
- Whole chicken
- water (as much as you can in pot to cover chicken)
- 1 cup pearl barley
- 1 cup brown rice
- 1 lg onion (chopped)
- 4-6 stalks celery (chopped)
- 4-6 carrots (chopped)
- 2-3 Tbsp salt, and pepper to taste
- egg noodles (about a cup)
- Put whole thawed chicken in a large pot.
- Cover with water, as much as you can.
- Optional: Add bay leaves (3-4)
- Bring to a boil, with cover on, on highest temperature that cover will stay on.
- Turn down to simmer for 3-4 hours.
- Remove to a plate to cool.
- Skim broth, remove bay leaves, and add to it the barley, brown rice, onion, and chopped celery and carrots.
- Debone chicken and add to pot. Let cool longer if too hot to handle.
- Add salt and pepper.
- Cook until veggies are tender.
- Add egg noodles, if you like, or if there’s too much broth, bring to a boil and cook until tender.
