I wasn’t able to add new posts since the terminator cold has entered our house, knocking down my son first, then me. That said, I feel this chicken broth soup recipe is the most appropriate post to share with you with cold viruses making rounds around the country.
If you research, you will find many articles from reliable sources that chicken broth soup (prepared from scratch with fresh chicken) has antibiotic effect and helps cure common cold and sore throat. If you prepare this soup and eat as soon as you feel the cold is coming over, you’ll see that impact of the virus will be reduced or even be able to prevent the cold from completely taking over.
- 4 cups of chicken broth (see the directions below)
- 2 cups of water
- 3/4 cup orzo (vermicelli or stelline)
- 2 medium size tomatoes, pureed
- Black pepper
Chicken broth directions:
- Add half a chicken (You can use only legs, breast or thighs that equals to half a chicken), one yellow onion – cut into four-, 1 medium carrot -cut into two -, and 4 whole garlic cloves) in 1 quart water and boil. I prepare my chicken broth with my pressure cooker.
Chicken broth soup directions
- Add chicken broth and water in a pot.
- Add tomato puree, salt and black pepper.
- Bring the broth into boil.
- Add orzo and boil until they are al dente. Stir the pot to prevent the noodles from sticking.
- You can add pulled white meat into the soup.
Edit: When I feel like the cold is coming over, I just pour the plain chicken broth soup in a mug, add some black pepper and bottoms up when hot (as much as I can handle). Eating gluten free, I skip orzo or noodles. If you need to give the soup to your baby, just take the salt out and blend the noodles well.
