With so many friends and family sick with the flu right now I had to share my favorite chicken soup recipe with you... of course it comes from my family in Romania and is loaded with lots of vegies to have you feeling better in no time. The combination of these vegetables adds so much flavor that it will be hard for you to ever accept Chicken Noodle soup in the can ever again!
This also happens to be the perfect time to pick up your copy of my newly released book "Five Keys to Becoming an Unstoppable Warrior Mom" for a great deal during our customer appreciation event... lasting only today and tomorrow!
So put your chicken soup on to cook and go get your book here and feel better soon and ready to make this year your very best with the success principles you will find in the book! Much Love - Joanna
1 chicken of abut 1,3 kg
3 medium-sized carrots
1/2 celery (root)
1 large onion
2 parsley (roots)
1 parsnip (root)
200 g noodles
1 bunch of parsley leaves
3 litres water
First of all, peel off all the vegetables and then put 3 litres of water in a pot and add 1 spoon of salt and bring it to the boil at a slow heat. The chicken has to be washed in cold water and then portioned so that it can fit in the stockpot. Add the peeled onion and the chicken. Slice then all the vegetables and add them to the soup, together with the peppercorns. As it boils, make sure you remove the scum that appears to keep the soup clear. It should boil for about an hour. You know it’s enough when the meat can be easily removed from the bones. Take away the chicken and then put the soup through a strainer. Make sure you throw the peppercorns! You can now cut the chicken into tiny pieces into the soup, or you can put them in the oven with some olive oil and chopped parsley and have a second course! And you can choose to re-add the vegetables to the soup or use them as side dish for the chicken.
Boil the noodles for 1 minute in some salted water and strain them. Add them to the soup. Chop the bunch of parsley and add it as well.
