This is a great recipe for people ages 1 to 100! Almost all kids like alphabet soup! But don't resort to a can. You can make this childhood staple yourself quickly and easily. You can even use frozen chicken! You can vary this recipe based on what you have on hand and what your family likes. You can make this in batches and freeze it also.
This makes about 6 large servings of soup.
Diced Veggies: onion, carrot, celery, garlic etc. (I usually use about 1 cup full).
1 teaspoon of olive oil
(2) 32 ounce containers of organic chicken broth
1 cup of water
1/2 teaspoon of nutmeg
1 tablespoon fresh or dried Italian parsley
1 all-natural chicken breast (fresh or frozen)
Alphabet pasta or other small pasta (I used about 1 cup)
1/4 cup good quality Parmesan Cheese
Pepper (to taste)
Saute veggies in the olive oil until softened. Add in the stock, water, nutmeg and parsley. Add in the whole chicken breast. Bring to a rolling boil and cook until the chicken breast in the boiling broth until fully cooked.
Remove the chicken and dice it after it cools and then add it back to the soup. Add in the alphabet pasta and cook for just a few minutes until it is al dente. Remove the pot from the stove. Stir in the Parmesan cheese. It will melt into the broth and flavor it. Add the pepper to taste. Remove the soup to a cool bowl so the pasta doesn't overcook.
