Hot and Healthy

Baby, its cold outside…..so warm up with good ‘ole chicken noodle soup! This isn’t your typical Campbell’s soup though. Make this exactly how you would want it…. hearty and healthy!! I promise you won’t need anything else to go with it….except maybe some whole grain crackers;) I just had a bowl….okay maybe two….but it was awesome!

Here’s what you’ll need:

4 cups Whole Grain Rotini Noodles
5 (14.5oz) cans Low sodium Chicken Broth
1lb Chicken Breast
2 cups diced carrots
2 cups diced celery
1 chopped white onion
3 minced garlic cloves
1 Tbs grape seed oil
1 Tbs Margarine substitute  (I used “I can’t believe its not butter”)
1 Tbs of Sea Salt (add more or less according to your liking…but be safe:D)
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp poultry seasoning
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp ground thyme

Prep:

Dice chicken and season it how you like (with the seasonings listed above). Add grape seed oil to a medium-sized skillet and turn the heat on med. Add chicken and allow it to only cook for about 5-6 mins and set aside.

In a pot, add margarine substitute and minced garlic. Heat on medium and don’t allow garlic to brown. Cook for 2-3 mins, then add celery and onions. Simmer for 5 mins the add all of the chicken broth. Once the broth is added, toss in all of your seasonings. Stir and simmer for a few mins. (This is the moment to try the broth and see if you need to add any special touches!) Add carrots, the sautéed chicken and rotini noodles. Bring to a boil then place a top on the pot and simmer on low for 8 minutes (or until the noodles are tender), and remove from heat! You’re all done!

 

So simple right!!!??? Enjoy!
