Dinner Tonight: Rainy Day Chicken Soup

The forecast calls for rain...all day. Cold, dark, cooped up, RAIN. This means I can't send my kids outside, shouldn't even attempt secret Santa shopping, and sure as heck wont be able to edit anyone's photos. My backup plan? Gingerbread cookie making and an EASY DINNER. Here's my go-to "I don't feel like cooking...or moving...or picking up the phone and ordering" dinner.


  • 1 whole chicken
  • 1 bag of carrots
  • 1 bag of celery
  • 1 bag of parsnips
  • 2 boxes organic chicken broth
  • 2 bay leaves
  • package of noodles if desired
  • salt to taste

This couldn't be more simple. Just chop the veggies and throw them in your pot with your bay leaves, add the whole chicken, and cover with broth. Bring it to a boil and allow it to simmer for about 90 minutes. After it cools, separate the chicken pieces and return it to the pot (discard bones or save for stock). Pull out the bay leaves (IMPORTANT), salt and pepper to taste, and serve!
