Calming Chicken Soup


Nothing can be more calming and comforting that a bowl of hot chicken soup when you are feeling sick and blue. It helps by rejuvenating your dehydrated body due to cold or flu or lethargy.Making chicken soup can be time consuming but sure is soothing and revitalizing in every slurp.For the most flavorful tender chicken soup,use fresh vegetable,herbs and simmer very gently.And make it more filling by adding any kind of cooked pasta.

Ingredients
2 lbs skinless Free range Chicken cut in medium pieces
1 big Chopped Onion,peeled and sliced
1 big Carrot,finely chopped
1/4 cup peas
1 cup Chopped Broccoli,chopped
4 garlic cloves
1 inch ginger root
Sea Salt and pepper as per your taste.

Method
Trim fat as much as you can from the chicken.Fill a big pot with about 5 cups of water and drop the chicken pieces and chopped onions. Peel ginger and garlic, grate them and mix in the pot of water.Add some salt and pepper. Cover and let simmer for at least an hour on medium low flame. Slow cooking keeps chicken tender.
Drain all the water in a big bowl. Separate the chicken from bones and keep aside in a bowl . Put the broth back in the pot and add finely chopped vegetables;simmer till vegetables are tender. Mix in the shred chicken and serve hot with some cooked whole grain pasta.
