For this entire week, my family has been suffering from a powerful mystery stomach illness that has caused plenty of upset tummies, changed sheets, clean-ups and long nights in the bathroom. We're all on the mend now, but our tummies are still quite sensitive. So I decided to make something really simple and filling for dinner since we all have somewhat of an appetite back. It's basically a chicken and rice based soup, but I call it Healing Soup as it did the trick! We felt better, had more energy then we had before and it didn't make our bellies unhappy. Here's the recipe!
- Chicken (or scrambled egg if you just can't stomach anything very meaty.)
- Frozen Mixed Veggies
- Chicken Stock
-Salt (To taste..but not too much)
-Pepper (To taste...as much you like)
-Spices (Whatever kind you like to taste)
-Start cooking your rice in your rice cooker or on the stove top following packaging instructions.
-Dice your chicken into small pieces and saute in a pan with some olive oil until cooked through and done. Or crack a couple of eggs and scramble how you like, breaking it into bite-sized pieces. Be sure to season accordingly along the way.
-Throw in your frozen veggies, season some more, and cook until warmed through and no longer frozen.
- Add one box of chicken stock to the pot, and add more seasonings until you get the desired flavor. Let it come to a small boil and then turn the temperature down to a low simmer. Simmer for ten minutes and then turn the heat off.
- Your rice should be done by now, so spoon a big ladle-full into a bowl then spoon your soup on top of it.
- This recipe is completely customizable! Use whatever frozen veggies you have on hand, and whatever seasonings you like! You can also increase the number of servings very easily.
There you go! It's an easy meal, light on your stomach, and will help you and your family feel much better! Enjoy!
