Are you kidding me? The flu and cold season is already here!?!? COME ON!!! Well, one true recipe to fight the flu is honestly chicken soup. We have tweaked the traditional to give you a more holistic recipe to warm you deep into your bones and help the body fight that flu virus hard!
Set up that crock pot and let this simmer day and night. You can add more broth and vegetables as the pot diminishes. You can also make up a batch for a sick friend. I am sure once the soup works it's magic they will be thanking you! Just remember it is a bit spicy but the spice is for a purpose!
3 pounds of skinless chicken breast that had been roasted on the bone.
1 large onion (about 5 ounces) chunked not chopped
3 large carrots sliced into bite size pieces.
3 cups chicken stock or low sodium canned broth
3 ounces Japanese seaweed sliced thin (think noodles)
1 tsp black pepper
2 tsp cayenne pepper
3 cloves raw garlic diced fine
Add all ingredients aside from the garlic to the crock pot to simmer. Allow to cook for several hours. Directly before serving add a half of a clove of diced garlic to the bowl.
