Hello friends! How was your Thanksgiving? Are you feeling a little run down from the hustle and bustle of last week? I know I am moving pretty slowly this Monday morning. If you are looking for something easy and comforting for dinner tonight look no further because I have a perfect recipe for you. If you’re lucky enough to have leftover turkey it would be the perfect addition to this soup. Save some time by picking up a Rotisserie chicken at the grocery store.
This soup warms the body and spirit when you are feeling run down. It is inspired by the chicken and stars soup from the can but tastes so much better. So as you are running around this month take a moment to recharge with a warm bowl of soup.
CHICKEN AND STARS
Cook Time: 15 minutes
8 cups chicken or turkey stock
1 teaspoon poultry seasoning
1 bay leaf
1 cup chopped celery
1 cup sliced carrots
1 small onion, chopped or 1/2 cup chopped onion
2 cups cubed chicken or turkey, cooked
2 cups stelle pasta, cooked*
chopped parsley for garnish
1. In a large pot bring stock to boil on high. Add in poultry seasoning, bay leaf, celery, carrots, and onion. Boil for 5-7 minutes or until vegetables are at your desired tenderness.
2. Add in cooked chicken or turkey. Stir in pasta and boil together for just a few minutes until everything is warmed through.
3. Remove the bay leaf before serving. Garnish with chopped parsley.
If reheating the next day you may need to add more stock to get it to a soupy consistency. I don’t mind a thicker soup on the second day.
*If you don’t have cooked pasta on hand boil some up in a separate pot while the stock and veggies are boiling
Are you doing any Cyber Monday shopping?
