Are you shivering? Feeling blue? Nursing a cold? Well, there is very little this soup cannot cure. It will warm up your bones, heal your body and nourish your soul.
It tastes like a warm home on a cold winter night. It’s packed full of flavour and vegetables and in fact, there is no more I can say about it, other than I love it and hope you love it too.
I’ll let the soup do the talking…
Ingredients (for 4 people):
200 grs of chicken (it can be any part of the chicken you want. In this recipe I used the wings because it was all I had left, and 2 wings are enough to give the soup a super-nice chickeny flavour).
1 onion, chopped.
2 cloves of garlic, chopped.
1/2 a courgette, diced.
2 carrots, diced.
The neck of a butternut squash, chopped.
1 corn cob.
A handful of cherry tomatoes, chopped.
1.- Remove the skin from the pieces of chicken you are using. Then if it’s the breast, chop into cubes and put in a pot with cold water, if you are using legs or wings, just place into the pot as is. Add some salt.
2.- Chop all your vegetables and reserve. Use a knife to separate the corn kernels from the cob.
3.- As the chicken cooks, you’ll see a sort of frothy, white layer on top of your pot. Remove it with a spoon so you’ll get a nice, clear liquid:
5.- Cook until the vegetables are tender. About 40 minutes.
6.- Remove the cob, shred the chicken and serve 🙂
If you want you can add some parmesan for extra flavour, but it is not really needed.
Wherever you are… I wish you a lovely day, full of joy and happy surprises!
