Pete calls this time of year “Snuggle Season.” It’s finally cold enough to snuggle all night long. That’s great … except for the fact that it’s cold. And cold means colds. Ugh, right? No one wants to be sick, but it’s pretty inevitable. At some point this season, you’ll probably get sick. And when you’re sick, all you want is your mom’s chicken soup, right? That and maybe something like Advil® Sinus Congestion & Pain too.
But sometimes, you’re too sick to make soup and shop for relief. That’s when it’s nice to have a friend who will deliver you comfort. In the times you’re not the one sick, you might want to make a huge batch of chicken soup for a friend who is sick. You don’t have to slave over a stove making your mom’s chicken soup every time you have a sick friend though. Instead, you should make my mom’s chicken soup. Why? Because she has a recipe for the best slow cooker chicken soup. Don’t worry. I’m sharing her (not so) secret recipe below.
Slow Cooker Chicken Soup Recipe
What You Need:
1.25 pounds chicken breast
2 medium onions
3 celery stalks
48oz. chicken broth
3 fresh parsley stalks
1 teaspoon dill
1 teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon pepper
8oz. extra wide egg noodles
What You’ll Do:
Peel and chop your vegetables (onions, carrots, celery, and parsley).
Add the chicken broth, vegetables, chicken, and seasoning to the slow cooker. Cook on low for 4 hours.
Add your egg noodles.
Cook on high an additional 15 to 20 minutes, until your noodles are very tender.
Very carefully, shred your chicken breasts. You can do this with two forks or meat claws, whatever you have at home.
Now, if you’re eating this yourself for dinner, you’ll want to serve it warm. But if you’re making this for a sick friend, you’ll need to store it.
What we do is put it in a mason jar when it’s piping hot, quickly closing the top, then flip the jar. What happens is you’ll be able to disinfect the inside of the lid and it will also form a seal. When your friend opens it, that very cool “pop” sound will happen.
After it has cooled, put it in a gift box with a card, tissues, and any products your recipient may need to feel better. We paired ours with Advil® Sinus Congestion & Pain and Advil® Allergy Congestion Relief. Use both as directed.
You can pick up both of these at Walgreens, which is where we generally stock up on these types of products – even when we’re not sick. The prices are great there, so I usually pair a coupon and a sale. Then, when we’re sick, we can just run into our closet instead of running to the store. In fact, these Advil® products are on sale at Walgreens this week, so sounds like a good time to get to the store and pick some up.
Our get well soon pack includes Advil® Sinus Congestion & Pain, Advil® Allergy Congestion Relief, tissues, and slow cooker chicken soup. What would you add to make tt your own?
