What's in the Cupboard = Yummy Chicken Soup

Ok, so today is day three of my family feeling a little under the weather - pretty sure it is allergy related. Outside is has been drizzel raining ALL day and doesn't sound like it is leaving anytime soon this week! (Not that you needed a weather update for out here)

Ok so off to the stove I went and this is what I made...Curry Chicken Soup! Yep it turned out very yummy.

Dice a sweet yellow onion - medium size
About 5 stalks of celery dices small
Match stick carrots (I buy these already cut, to lazy to do it myself!)

Saute this in a stock pot with a little bit of Olive oil.

Add 1/2 bag of frozen Corn
Add 1 can of Beans (I used cantonelli beans)
Add 2 Turkish Bay Leaves
Add 2 32 oz cartons of Chicken Stock
Add 1 tsp. of yellow Curry

Let simmer on low.

I had a 1/2 bag of pesto filled pasta tortollini from Trader Joes and added this pasta to my simmering pot.

In another I pot I took 3 checken breasts, water, with large dices chopped onion and 1 bay leaf. Boil until done. About 15 minutes. When the chicken is done chop up into bite size peices and add to the pot of soup.

My grocery store has this yummy garlic salted french bread that I served with it. It was delicious!!!
