my cure for the common cold…

What better way to nurse a lingering cold then with a homemade batch of chicken soup!
I diced up an onion, celery and carrots and tossed them all into a large pot! Everything was sautéed in some olive oil [along with salt to taste] until just the onions and celery were translucent and the carrots slightly softened… then I smashed the hell out of, and minced up some garlic and added that in as well to cook off some of the rawness…
Into the pot went roughly one quart of water and one quart of homemade chicken stock which was brought to a boil. Once boiling, in went some cooked chicken breast chunks, the heat was reduced to a simmer, the lid went on and the soup was then cooked for about a half hour…
After simmering down, it was off the heat and to the table [or in our case island]. Piping hot and full of get better goodness, this soup was sure to jump start the immune system and help us on the road to recovery!

at a low simmer…
