I love eating and making soups.
Believe me, when you live in a frozen tundra, like we do, almost every night could be a soup night! So, I was thinking about ways to mix up my normal chicken noodle soup recipe and as I was rummaging through the cabinets and fridge I found McCormick Gourmet Collection Thyme Leaves(Thanks to Influenster and my FrostyVoxBox), lemon, fresh kale, scallions and some really cute pasta stars that my 3 yr old had picked out. Perfection!
Here are the ingredients:
- 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
- 1 32 oz container of chicken broth
- 16 oz of water
- 1 1/2 cups of raw carrot
- 1 1/2 cups of raw kale
- 3 tbs of scallions
- the juice of one lemon
- a pinch of garlic powder
- 1 tbs of McCormick Gourmet Collection Thyme Leaves
- 1 16oz pkg of pasta stars
- salt and pepper to taste
Place chicken breasts, chicken broth, water, garlic powder and thyme in a soup pot over high heat and bring to a boil. Let it boil for about 5 minutes.
While that boils, put the carrots, kale and scallions into your food processor. Remove the chicken breasts from the pot and put those in the processor as well. Pulse until everything is about pea sized. Return everything back into the boiling broth. Continue to boil for another 5 minutes.
Squeeze in the fresh lemon juice and add your pasta. Boil for another 8 – 10 minutes or until the pasta is cooked to your liking.
Give it a taste and add salt and pepper as you see fit.
Serve to your happy family!
It’s the easiest, yet most delicious chicken noodle soup recipe that I have come up with and it scored 12 thumbs up in my house!
