Well. I guess I really do need bone broth after all!
So glad that I made a big batch of the broth on Monday because yesterday I came down with a nasty sinus infection that has knocked me out for the past few days.
Today I had the energy to make it downstairs and when I opened the refrigerator I saw those lovely jars of bone broth. And the extra chicken meat that I plucked from the bones before making the broth. Win.
Ahh…… chicken soup! Nature’s antibiotic. (Although I got a Z Pack as well!) I have also read that chicken soup is good for sinus infections. I just know that when I am sick, chicken soup sounds so good.
I am not a fan of canned soups. The Hubs loves them but I try to make him homemade soup whenever I can. I always have Kirkland Organic Chicken Stock from Costco on hand but I was super excited to have my own homemade broth to use.
I looked through the pantry and the fridge and threw these ingredients in the Bella Electric Pressure Cooker and voila – an easy, fast, yummy soup was ready for my lunch. Now, back upstairs for a little nappy poo. We have tickets to see Billy Joel on Saturday at Dodger Stadium and I need to get better!
Here is how I made it:
Easy Chicken and Wild Rice Soup
Serves about 6
4 stocks celery – cut into chunks
3-4 carrots, peeled and cut into chunks
Baby carrots – as much as you want (I usually don’t have baby carrots on hand-these were left over from something and I needed to use them up)
3/4 cup uncooked wild rice
1-2 cups cooked chicken
2 quarts chicken broth
Throw it all in the electric pressure cooker and push the “soup” button. Release pressure after timer beeps.
Garnish with green onions or whatever your little heart desires. Easy!
