Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup
So as I said on Friday, I have been sick for 5 weeks. Not wanting to take anything for fear it would impede my breastfeeding success I have just been struggling with cough drops, rest, vitamins, vicks , saline spray, water and tissues. I stayed home with Reed (he has been sick this whole time too) on Friday and made some homemade chicken noodle and cleaned my entire house.
I remembered reading that there was proof that chicken noodle soup really did help the common cold but in writing this post I could not find a true article reflecting that. But I am counting on the proof in hopes that this stuff will help me feel better and kick this cold.
Here is my recipe...it was so good and just what the doctor ordered!
Chicken Noodle Soup
Bring 5 cups of water to a boil. Add two chicken bouillon cubes and one boneless skinless chicken breast. Boil chicken breast until cooked. In the meantime add one cooked onion, two finely chopped carrots and 4 finely chopped celery stalks. Remove chicken from water when cooked and cut the chicken into very small pieces. Add chicken back to the soup. Then add one cup of your favorite noodles. I used elbow macaroni but small shells or mini penne would be nice as well. Add garlic salt and pepper to taste.
