Homemade Chicken Soup

 We received our first snow day today in Hampton Roads and what better way to spend the day closed in making chicken soup, sipping on tasty wine and finding much inspiration on Pinterest.   Here is my recipe for when you decide to find some warmth on a snowy day.

  • 1 Small Egg Plant (cut into pieces, removing the core)
  • 1 Onion
  • 1 Green Pepper
  • 1 Potato
  • 1 Sweet Potato
  • 2-3 Corn on the cobs (broke in half)
  • 1 pack of Chicken Breast (skinless)
  • 7 Spanish Manzanilla Olives (stuffed w/minced pimientos)
  • 1 spoon of minced Garlic
  • 3 spoons of Knorr Chicken Flavor Bouillon
  • 2 spoons of Tomato Paste
  • Herbs - Ground Pepper, Cilantro, Oregano (1/2 tablespoon each)
  • Half a gallon of Water


Now it's time to add everything together and enjoy this delicious, fresh soup! Add all ingredients to the pot in the following order (the order does matter): 
  • Add Water, Chicken, Onions, Pepper, Olives, Garlic and herbs (Let simmer for for 35 minutes on high heat)
  • Add Corn, Egg Plants, Potatoes, Tomato Paste and Bouillon flavor (let simmer for 30 minutes on medium heat)
