Chicken and Pasta Soup

I needed a dish that was going to filling, quick and easy to make with enough to do at least 3 lunches for me at work and a dinner or 2 for the boy child.
This Chicken and Pasta soup is ideal for all of the above and it made exactly what I needed.
It's a yummy, syn free and filling meal, perfect for keeping me going until dinner time and for filling up the boy child before bed.

Here goes:

Ingredients:
2x Chicken Breasts
1x Large Potato
Frozen Veg - I was out of fresh veg so threw in a few handfuls of frozen carrots, brocolli and cauliflower
1 tsp Minced Garlic
1 tsp Mixed Herbs
2 tsp Onion Powder (Regular readers will know I hate onions and avoid where possible, but you could add an actual onion here instead)
1 litre chicken stock (2 stock cubes)
Salt and pepper
Pasta of your choice - amount depends on how much you want to fill out your soup, I cooked whatever I had left in a packet of farfelle


Method:


  • I started by boiling my 2 chicken breasts on a rolling boil for about 20 mins until cooked through. I find boiling the chicken for things like this rather than frying keeps the meat far more moist and tender
  • Once cooked I shredded the chicken into pieces
  • I diced my potato and added it to a saucepan along with my chicken, frozen veg, garlic, onion, herbs, salt, pepper and stock
  • Bring to the boil and then simmer for about an hour
  • I then cooked up the pasta and added it to the soup
So quick and simple and lunch is sorted for the next 3 days. That is my kind of cooking :)
