I've caught the cold the rest of the family has had for a few days and decided some chicken soup would be good for dinner. This is a super quick, easy recipe, nothing fancy or long cooked about it.
1-2 chicken breasts, cut into small pieces
1 onion, chopped
2-3 cloves garlic, minced or pressed
2 carrots, peeled and diced
2 stalks celery, sliced
1 box low sodium chicken broth
4 cups water
salt, pepper, basil
In a soup pot, cook the onions, chicken, garlic, carrots, and celery in some oil until the onion is softened and the chicken is cooked through. Add the chicken broth and water, season to taste with salt and pepper and a couple shakes of basil. Stir and bring to a boil; turn down the heat and simmer for 10-15 minutes. Serve the soup over a portion of noodles.
