Ah…as a single lady, as I mentioned before, being able to cook or at least fake it till you make it, can be your Golden Willie Wonka ticket into a relationship. Shoot! Why not get brownie points for baking a batch of delicious brownies!?! Ha!
There’s going to come a time when the person you are dating gets the sniffles. Why not wow tha SHIT out of him by cooking him a homemade batch of chicken noodle soup!
Welp, MY special friend was suffering from a cold this weekend and I ran home and made him a big pot of chicken noodle soup and even brought over a box of individually wrapped saltine crackers for him. Oh yes!! I’m working for that top spot honey and he was impressed!! (side note – leave the pot with him, gives you an excuse to see him again)
- Chicken Breast – my suggestion would be to buy them already thinly sliced
- Egg Noodles
- Chicken Stock
- (2) Chicken Bullion Cubes
- Salt, Pepper and Adobe Seasoning
- Olive Oil
Boil Water, Chicken Cubes and Chicken Stock together. You should want your stock to account for at least half of the liquid in your pot (the way this recipe is written will help you alter the amount you yield depending on your needs)
Slice up all of your veggies and through them in there. I wouldn’t dice them up though, you want big chunky vegetables. Let them soften for a few minutes and then throw in the egg noodles. Add your THYME, Salt, Pepper and Adobe Seasoning. *Be sure to scrape/peel the dirt off of your carrots first! Let boil for 20-25 minutes before adding the chicken.
While the water, veggies and noodles are boiling, start slicing/(dice depending on how small you want it) your chicken in to cubes. Heat up a skillet or frying pan with olive oil (enough to cover the bottom of the pot). Sautee the chicken in the olive oil until lightly browned on BOTH sides. Add salt, pepper and Adobe Seasoning. DO NOT add the time to the chicken.
After sauteed, let the chicken boil with the rest of your ingredients for about 15 minuets.
And voila!!! Homemade chicken noodle soup!!! This is a simple and very quick recipe for you to try! It also gives you time to go get fancy before you drop off your homemade care package. Also, you can adapt it very easily to your taste and jazz it up by adding corn, potatoes, peas, etc…
