I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! While I love this time of year, the amount of delicious, starchy, sugary and fatty food is unavoidable. And worse yet, we can just cover it all up with our big comfy sweaters and expandable spandex so we don’t have to see the damage.
Alas, I was on a quest when I got back to Chicago to try some new healthy meals (and give the ole’ BF a break from the grill for once!). My first journey on this quest was home made chicken noodle soup (Corey and I both consequently had a cold; Thank you Minnesota….).
Saute carrots first with oil or butter (carrots are dense and take longer to cook)
Saute the onions and celery in a separate pan
When both are golden combine in big pot and add chicken stock
Peel the chicken into strips with a fork and add to the mixture
(Cook noodles separately according to directions and add to the mixture)
Add thyme, S&P
