Laura’s Super Soup
makes 4 servings, takes about 30 minutes

1 lb. fresh chicken breast
1 tsp. salt

2 T. salted butter (or vegetable oil)
1 sweet onion, chopped
4 large carrots, chopped
4 stalks of celery, chopped
4 roma tomatoes, chopped
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. dried basil
1 cup vegetable stock

to prepare the chicken…
In a small pot, boil the chicken on medium heat with about 4 cups of water and salt until the chicken is fully cooked (about 10-15 minutes). Remove chicken from the water (but save it, you’ll need the broth!!) and shred or chop it on a cutting board. Set both aside.

In a medium pot, sauté the carrots, celery and onions with the butter/oil on medium heat. Once the onions begin to seem transparent, add the chicken, tomatoes, salt, pepper, basil and vegetable stock. Add enough of the water from the boiling of the chicken until all ingredients are fully submerged in broth. Allow the soup to boil for another 15-20 minutes on low heat while covered.

Serve and enjoy! 🙂

And don’t forget to save your leftovers! This soup will be equally as delicious tomorrow.
