Make Me Feel Better Soup
I list only general amounts of ingredients, as this soup is really a 'whatcha got in the pantry' sort of soup.
Over medium heat, saute a chopped onion in butter (or olive oil). Add chopped celery and carrot, potato, parsnips, etc. When onion is translucent, add chopped or ground chicken. When the chicken is cooked, add stock or water to desired level.
I wanted to make quite a bit of soup, so I added about 6 cups of water. I added dried basil as well, and salt and pepper to taste. Turn up the heat and bring to a boil. When boiling, add noodles of your choice. I added plain ramen noodles. When the noodles are cooked, the soup is done.
Bring to your patient with loving patience, then go take a few moments for yourself - it might be a long night!
