BooMama is asking for soup recipes today, and since I have the easiest, healthiest, and possibly the yummiest chicken noodle soup recipe on the planet, I’m in.
Mary’s 20 Minute Chicken Noodle Soup
–Bring 8 cups of water to boil in a large pot.
–Chop 2 chicken breasts into bite-sized pieces and fry in a dab of oil. (If you happen to have a cup or two of already cooked chicken in the freezer, or maybe a leftover piece or two of deli chicken, you can do this whole recipe in 10 minutes. )
— Chop 1/4 of a cabbage into fine slivers, like cole slaw.
— Grate two carrots.
–Mash 2 cloves of garlic.
— Add all of the above ingredients to the pot, either before or after the water comes to a boil. Once the cabbage has been boiling a minute or two, add 4 packages of ramen noodles along with only TWO packages of the dry soup mix that comes with the ramen. Cook 3 minutes. Taste. Add a slosh of soy sauce if you like. (I like.)
(This is fine as a leftover too, as long as you don’t overcook the noodles when reheating.)
