Chicken Soup

I came home for work today with a runny nose and soar throat - not feeling so great! The bad news was that my husband called and he was coming home sick too! Nothing like two sick people in one house.

I thought it was best that I start my evening with a nap. I slept for a few hours. When I woke up I realized that eventually one of us was going to have to cook something for dinner.

When I opened the regrigerator I didn't really see anything that I could make for dinner. I did notice that I had some carrots and celery. Ok, that sounds like the beginning to some kind of soup. I also found onion, corn and chicken broth. Which caused me to conclude - Chicken Soup!

Chicken Soup

Boil water and add chicken, chuncks of onion, one bay leaf, and one tablespoon oregano
Boil chicken until cooked.
In another pan
sauté onions, carrots and celery in oil
add 1 cup of corn

Take the chicken (only) from the other pan and chop into small parts
Add the chicken to the sautéed mixture
Add pepper
1 tbs thyme
1tbs basil
Mix all these ingredients well

Then add 2 cups low sodium chicken broth
3 cups water

Let cook an hour or two.
Add noodles last
(allow the noodles to cook until tender)
