Let's face it. When everyone around you is coughing and sneezing, you have no hope of escaping the illness of the season. The best thing you can do is stock up on tea, get a pair of fuzzy socks, and grab a cup of soup. I don't mean pre-packaged cup noodles or ramen. I'm talking about a fresh chicken soup loaded with veggies and real chicken breast.
This soup recipe is very simple and adaptable to your tastes. It starts with a chicken bullion broth, then  vegetables, noodles, and chicken can be added however you want. For this batch, I grabbed a variety of veggies from my dining hall salad bar. 


  • 2 chicken bullion cubes 
  • 4 small celery stalks (f)
  • 1/4 cup raw onion (f)
  • 1/3 cup green beans (cooked) (f)
  • 1/4 cup chicken breast (cooked) (f)
  • thermos

Sweat onions and celery
 1. Chop vegetables and chicken
 2. Combine celery and onion in double boiler bowl. Sweat onions (aka- heat until onions start to lose their juices)
 3. Add chicken to celery and onions. Heat until chicken is warm to the touch.
 4. Pour 2 cups boiling water into thermos with 2 bullion cubes. Stir to mix flavoring.
 5. Add green beans and double boiler ingredients to chicken broth. 
 6. Cover thermos with lid. Let flavors combine while soup cools.
Sip your soup, and get well soon!
