So, I did what every good mother does when the family isn't feeling up to par. I made chicken soup.
I've made this recipe before. I don't really have any exact measurements to follow. Just a handful of this and a pinch of that. I like it that way. I don't usually make big batches to freeze, although you definitely could, just use a bigger pot and add more stuff! ;)
My recipe goes something like this.
In a saucepan, heat some olive oil. Throw in some chopped celery, carrots and onions and saute' until soft.
Add some minced garlic and a box of gluten-free chicken broth.
Throw in some pre-cooked chicken. I used some of a roaster chicken I had bought on sale, cut up and put in the freezer for just such an occasion. I put the rest back in the deep freeze to use at a later date.
Add some gluten-free noodles, any kind you like. I used Bionaturae Gluten-Free Spaghetti. I broke it up into pieces before throwing it in the pot. Sea Salt and Pepper to taste.
You can also add a bay leaf, if you can find it in your spice drawer. I couldn't. (Note to self: Do SOMETHING about that spice drawer!)
Let it all bubble away until the pasta is cooked. Serve nice and hot so that you can breath in the steam!
Hopefully, with a little rest, plenty of fluids and my homemade chicken soup, the family will be back to "normal" soon. (Whatever that is! LOL!)
Have a great gluten-free day!
