Real Chicken Soup

4 cups chicken broth
1 lb skinless boneless chicken breasts
1 medium onion, chopped
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 garlic clove, minced
4 medium carrots sliced
2 celery ribs sliced
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 bay leaf
1 teaspoon fresh thyme
1/4 teaspoon turmeric

Bring broth to a simmer. Add chicken and simmer, uncovered, 6 minutes. Remove pan from heat cover, then let stand until chicken is cooked through, about 15 minutes. Shred chicken. Reserve poaching liquid, uncovered.

In another pot saute bay leaf and onion until soft (not brown) about 6 minutes. Add garlic and cook, about 1 minute. Add turmeric and saute another minute. Add carrots, celery, thyme, salt, and pepper and cook, covered, stirring occasionally, until softened, 8 to 10 minutes. Add poaching liquid and chicken, simmer 10 minutes.

Serves 3-4


Fake Chicken Soup

No poaching involved. Find a chicken substitute. I also recommend using "no chicken vegetarian" broth rather than any old vegetable broth as all broths have tomato in them and that affects the flavor of the soup. Such products can be found at Whole Foods.

Follow above recipe, after sauteing turmeric, add the chicken and saute for 4-5 minutes on med-high. Then add vegetables and herbs, cook for 5 minutes. Then add broth and simmer for 20 minutes.
