I was at work and I felt that tickle in the back of my throat. Right then I knew I was in for trouble. That's how those sinus troubles begin...with that tickle. I left work as soon as my time was up and went to the neighborhood grocers to see if they had any chicken on sale. I didn't feel like messing with any frozen chicken. I just wanted to make some homemade chicken noodle soup and I needed a few veggies.
When I got home I got right to it. Thank goodness for that locking pot that makes everything cook faster. The recipe that I was using is from, you guessed it, Allrecipes.com. There's a simple Quick and Easy Chicken Noodle Soup recipe that I like there. I made a few modifications in order like boiling my boneless skinless chicken breasts (yes, there was a sale at the store) in chicken bouillon cubes to make a richer broth. Then added the sauteed onions, celery, and carrots to the broth after I removed the chicken so I could shred it. The rest is basically from the recipe mentioned above.
I haven't eaten the soup yet because it's still cooking. But it smells so good though. I hope those rumors about the cure-all effect of chicken noodle soup is right. Or maybe my mom's right - you need to get some rest!
