So you are SICK! Headache, runny nose, nasal congestion and sneezing. And guess who has to make that chicken soup to bring you back to life? YOU! Yourself and only you.
I promise you this chicken soup is very easy. I make it every time I get sick. When my husband gets sick, I take more time and put more effort, just to show my looooove for him .
Simple but flavorful, and if your nasal passages allow it, very aromatic. Give it a try.
You can always adjust it to your taste, substituting oregano for cilantro or even for parsley.
We also need some corn to give it more texture.
Now, it’s time to chop! I spent some extra time cutting the veggies into small pieces, just because I remembered my sweet Mom always made this soup when I was little, she always cut everything nice and small.
Hey! If you are feeling really sick, don’t bother chopping so much, just chop the veggies into large chunks.
Place the chicken in a large pot, adding water, salt, the sliced onion, and the garlic cloves. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat. We are basically poaching our chicken in a flavorful bath.
Once the chicken is cooked through, just FYI the juices should run clear…
Add some vitamin C, lime juice.
2 Chicken breat
1 Large plantain
1 Green bell pepper
2 Celery stalks
1 Can of corn
About 8 cups of water
2-3 Garlic cloves
Bring the water with the chicken, salt, onion and garlic to boil, then lower the heat and simmer until chicken is cooked. Let the chicken cool down and shred it, then add it back to the chicken broth. Also add the rest of the veggies, except for the celery and oregano. The vegetables should be tender after 5-7 minutes. Finally add the celery and the oregano.
Serve with some lime juice.
