One of the things my kids love is Chicken Soup.

This recipe calls for just a few simple ingredients such as chicken broth (I used Traders Joe’s Organic Low Sodium Chicken Broth), chicken (my preference is thighs, they are just juicier and tender to me), carrots, onion and celery, a little garlic and spices, squash and then penne (for me penne adds a little thickening to the soup) and if you cannot find penne you are welcome to use egg noodles.
32 oz of Trader Joe’s Low Sodium Chicken Broth
1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts or thighs, cut into bite sized pieces
2 cups carrots sliced
2 cups of squash or pumpkin
3 stalks celery sliced thin
1 whole onion finely diced
1/2 tablespoon dried thyme
1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary
1 whole bay leaf
1 1/2 tablespoons salt
1/2 tablespoon freshly ground black pepper
16 ounces penne
Add carrots, celery, onion, ginger, basil, oregano, and rosemary to Wonder Pot.
Arrange chicken on top of vegetables and season with salt and pepper.
Add broth and water (1 cup) .
Press soup and change dial to cook for 4 hours.
After everything is in the pot, just let it simmer and it will thicken up. If it gets too thick just add in some more chicken broth to get it the consistency that you want.
Add noodles and cook for 20-30 minutes more.
Now its time to dig in! Yum!
