Chicken Soup for the Sick Soul.

By far, the best soup I have ever made. It probably tastes very good because I am sick, but boy, does it feel wonders in my mouth. As I inhale the hot steam from the soup, it gives my nose such pleasure on being able to breathe once again. I can’t wait to feed Oliver this soup when he is old enough to eat, especially when he is sick.

Side note: I definitely have some quiet time now. I tried laying Oliver in his crib without anything around him (thick blanket underneath him, stuffed animals to accompany him as he sleeps, a towel that cradled him underneath the thick blanket U-shaped). Just him, his lovey, and firm mattress. If you ask me, it looks so….lonely, is the word? As if the baby is in prison. Poor Oliver. I wonder what he was thinking and feeling. I tried twice and he screamed at the top of his lungs for a good 10-15 min each time. I picked him up and transferred him to our bed, where I laid down with him, nursing him. It worked! I was able to get up and continue to cook. Yay!

Pray for us to get better as a family. Being sick is not cool. Fever, cold, runny nose, sneezing 24/7. I just want to be able to breathe again. We tried this neat thing called Netipot. It was weird but it works. It has to be used 2x a day to work.

As far as my recipe for this chicken soup, I did everything to taste. I listed the ingredients if you want to try it.

  • Chicken (boil seperately, once done, pull it apart- shred)
  • Any type of noodles-Rotini (boil separately and drain once done)
  • Take chicken out of pot and use the broth, leaving stove on med-high heat
  • Add more chicken broth (I used prepacked chicken broth to add)
  • Add chopped veggies (celery, carrots, onions, garlic cloves-minced)
  • Sprinkle parsley, oregano, salt, pepper, garlic powder, chili powder
  • Add bay leaf/leaves (I used 2)
  • Add lemon juice
  • Put high heat and let it boil for 5 minutes
  • Add shredded, cooked chicken
  • Let it simmer for 10 minutes or so.
  • Put cooked noodles in a bowl and add the cooked soup on top of it.
  • Chicken noodle soup is ready to eat!
