Comfort Food: Chicken Soup

On some days, whether it be a cold muggy winter day or a day when you need to feel some extra warmth and comfort, nothing beats comfort food. Thanks to my brother of reminding me of the most famous of all comfort foods, a chicken soup. He gave me the idea, so this is all accredited to him :)


Free Range Chicken breast (cubed)                                                                           1 lb
Pacific Free Range Chicken Broth                                                                              32oz
Leek (Sliced)                                                                                                                          1 stalk
Garlic (crushed)                                                                                                                    4 cloves
Carrots (sliced/cubed)                                                                                                       1 cup

Dried tarragon                                                                                                                       1/2 tsp
Dried Oregano                                                                                                                      1/2 tsp
Cayenne Pepper                                                                                                                     1/4 tsp
Sweet paprika                                                                                                                       1/4 tsp

1.) Start by browning both sides of the leek in a pot.
2.) After browning the leek, add broth into the pot and bring to a simmer.
3.) Add in the rest of the ingredients except the chicken.
4.) After the broth comes to a boil, add chicken and reduce to a simmer.
5.) Let the soup simmer for 20 minutes, or until the chicken is fully cooked and the carrots begin to soften. Enjoy!!!! :)
