When I'm sick (which isn't often) I have to have Greek Lemon Soup/my friend Linda's Jewish Style Chicken Noodle Soup (lots and lots of fresh dill) or creamed chicken soup with curry....or Chinese Hot and Sour Soup. There is nothing like a pot of homemade chicken soup to make the world a better place and make you feel better. I try to keep base in the freezer at all times so if a friend is sick/suffering, I can make a batch of homemade chicken soup to make the world a little better place for that person.

Turmeric! That's what I forgot! Thanks your Ogerness! I am also thinking I might use a small cinnamon stick next time with the bay leaf - more of an infusion than the powdered stuff.

It's such a good anti-inflammatory! I use it as often as I can.

I forgot that! And I really need some natural anti-inflammatory because Naproxen isn't doing it for me and the only other thing is Toradol and I will not take that - the side affects are worse than my pain.

Totally off topic re: LP's chicken soup--I love steamed fresh green beans tossed with EVOO and turmeric. I steam the beans, drain the pan, add the EVOO and turmeric, toss the green beans back in the pan and flip them around abit until they are somewhat coated--I can't say how much turmeric I add--to taste depending on how many beans I have steamed. I sometimes add some diced red peppers or tomatoes.

That sounds awesome, CW! I love green beans and will have to try this next time I get some from the market!

This is my "go to" veggie as a side for a nice steak or chicken breast. The beans were flowering last week--I am so looking forward to some fresh bush beans tossed with turmeric!!! I also do this with gama marsala (sp) or curry powder (both of which a friend who is married to a gentleman from India makes for me in exchange for fresh eggs), but turmeric is my first choice.

We are both feeling much better today and I am sure it was the soup that made the difference!

LP's Chicken Noodle Soup
Olive or Peanut oil
5 - 6 boneless skinless chicken thighs
1 onion, chopped fine
2-3 garlic cloves, minced
2 shallots, chopped fine
2 celery stalks, sliced
1/2 cup white wine (or chicken stock/broth)
4 - 6 cups chicken stock/broth
Seasonings to taste:
1/2 tsp Cumin
1 tsp Coriander
pinch Cinnamon
pinch Nutmeg
Salt and Pepper
2 tsps tarragon
Bay Leaf
2 Tbsp fresh parsley
1/2 cup uncooked small pasta

Chop the chicken into into one inch pieces. Heat 1 Tbsp of oil on the bottom of a heavy bottomed large pot. Add the chicken, onion, garlic and shallots, stirring quickly so meat doesn't stick but browns all over. Don't allow the onions and garlic burn.

Deglaze the pan with the white wine or stock, stirring to get all the bits off the bottom. Add stock, celery and all of the seasonings (except parsley, salt and pepper) and let simmer covered for about an hour or as long as you want, though you may have to add more stock or water.

Remove bay leaf and add pasta. Boil until pasta is cooked. Add parsley and salt and pepper to taste.

Enjoy!
Thanks Laurie, this sounds so good and comforting. c & p
