Ginger Chicken Noodle Soup

Soup that makes you go mmm

Over the weekend Jason came down with a nasty head cold. So being the good wife I am, I ran out to the store and gathered up fixings for some homemade chicken noodle soup. Let me start this off by saying this is not your Grandma's chicken noodle soup - we have added in few cold fighter additions for a little extra punch. Now I have been sending a thermos of this for Jason's lunch the past few days and I guess it has been causing a stir over there in cubicleville. People keep popping their heads over and asking what are you eating? It smells really good.

So let me ask you this - does your chicken noodle soup smell so good it makes people turn their heads?

I thought so... that can is just not cutting it...

Give this a try and you know that little mucus monster that has taken up residence in your sinuses? Well after eating some of this ginger chicken noodle soup he will be given the heave hoe.

Who Knew?

Research shows that eating chicken noodle soup helps increase the movement of nasal mucus and improves the function of the those tiny hairlike guys in your nose called cilia -who kenw? Well now you do, so with the increase movement of that mucus monster and the improved function of the cilia keeping contagions from entering your body you will be feeling better in no time!

Here's how the soup making went down...

The Process

Step 1

Get out your large soup pot or similar apparatus. Heat the olive oil then add in the celery, carrots and onion. Cook until celery and carrots are crisp-tender, about 5 mins, season with salt and pepper.

Step 2

Pour in the chicken broth and the water. Throw in the ginger and garlic and bring to a boil.

Step 3

When it starts to boil add the chicken breasts, reduce to a simmer and cover. Cook until chicken is done about 10 mins. Using tongs remove the chicken to a plate, add pasta and cook until tender - meanwhile shred chicken and put back into pot.

Step 4

When you pasta becomes tender your almost there. Throw in the bag of spinach and let it wilt for a minute or two and your soup is ready! Serve up in bowls with some fresh bread or a sliced apple.
