Kick Sickness Soup
I have been making this mexican spicy soup for a long time now. It really does kick any sickness' rear. The problem is, I tend to be the one sick. I need to make some and freeze it for when I get sick next time. We have been fighting a bad flu bug here. Jordan, Me, Randy have all got it. Taylor is the only one who fought it off... so far. So my appetite is back, but shaky. I am making my soup because it is good, and I know it helps knock out illness.
Here is the tricky part. In the past I never measure. I just add and keep tasting. So I am going to attempt to give you a baseline on how to make it. The base is really simple.
100 oz of chicken broth + 50 oz water in an extra large saucepan.Bring to a boil.
Add 4 Chicken breasts and 2 cups uncooked Jasmine Rice.
1 TB salt
1 TB pepper
1 TB italian seasoning
Cover and cook until chicken is tender and falling apart. (Usually 20 - 30 min)
On the side chop up cilantro, jalepeno, onion, avocado.
Serve up a bowl of the cooked chicken and rice soup, on top put raw jalepeno, cilantro, onion and avocado. Serve immediately.
I hope everyone had a great weekend. I trust everyone is trying to get back to their healthy diets after splurging over Sup...
Tis' the season to be naughty fa la la la la, la la la la! There are yummy bites everywhere. I do my best to stay away from most of...
