The hubby is now sick. I usually make him homemade chicken noodle soup, but found this recipe on Pinterest. I had almost all of the ingredients so I thought I would give it a shot. Also, having the would “detox” in title made it even more enticing to try.
Overall, it was beyond delicious and the flavors were AMAZING! We were both surprised on how much we liked how it turned out. The hubby isn’t one for soups, but this recipe is one he said he would like to keep on the dinner rotation!
The original recipe is from A Spicy Perspective’s blog. I made a couple of edits to the recipe. I don’t like peas so I substituted that for edamame. I also didn’t have turmeric so I substituted that for Maderas Curry Powder.
I know I mentioned this yesterday but H-E-B is my favorite grocery store! I linked a couple of the ingredients I used below.
- 1 1/2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breast
- 64oz chicken broth
- 1large onion, peeled and chopped
- 1 head broccoli
- 2 1/2 cups (about 4) carrots, sliced
- 2 cups chopped celery
- 1 1/2 cups frozen peas– I don’t like peas so I substituted for edamame
- 1/4 cup chopped parsley
- 2 tablespoons fresh ginger, grated
- 4 garlic cloves, minced
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
- 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
- 1/4 teaspoon ground turmeric– I didn’t have turmeric so substituted for Maderas Curry Powder
- Salt and pepper
- Start by cutting up all of the veggies (onion, broccoli, carrots, celery, parsley, ginger, and garlic)
- Set a large sauce pot over medium heat.
- Add the olive oil, chopped onions, celery, ginger, and garlic.
- Sauté for 5-6 minutes to soften.
- Add the raw chicken breasts, carrots, broth, apple cider vinegar, crushed red pepper, turmeric (Maderas curry powder) and 1 teaspoon sea salt.
- Bring to a boil
- Lower the heat to low, cover the pot, and let simmer for 20 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through.
- Remove the chicken and set on a cutting board
- Add the broccoli, peas (edamame), and parsley to the pot.
- Shred the chicken, then stir it back into the soup.
- Once the broccoli is tender, taste, then salt and pepper as needed.
