Heavenly Chicken Soup
Note: Make it with stock on hand or use a combination of canned soups and extracts. Simmer a few veggies in the stock and add chicken last. (The soup tastes good even without chicken.) In a rush, throw in a package of frozen vegetables. Serve with Superb Rolls or Intense Garlic Bread Surprise.
Serving size,1 ½ cups. Carbs per serving 5.5 grams of carb. NUMBER OF SERVINGS: 2.
2 cups chicken stock
1 Tablespoon butter (optional)
2 Tablespoons olive oil (optional)
1 cup raw, chopped broccoli
½ cup raw, chopped cauliflower (about 1-inch pieces)
½ cup chopped sweet green pepper
½ cup chopped zucchini
salt to taste
freshly ground black pepper to taste
1 cup diced, skinless chicken
Put stock in a medium saucepan. Add optional butter and/or olive oil. Add vegetables. Add salt and freshly ground pepper. Simmer until vegetables are tender. This is a clear soup. If you want the soup to be slightly thicker, you can mash some veggies (right in the pot) with a potato masher or put half of the veggies (or as many as you like) in a blender or food processor and puree briefly, then return to soup. Add the diced chicken last. Reheat if needed. Adjust seasonings and serve.
