Warm Food to cook while stuck in the cold

Warm Food to cook while stuck in the cold

Winter is a time for staying out of the cold and being comfortable in the warmth, and that’s translated into the world of food. There are plenty of easy-to-make comfort foods that you can enjoy in the warmth of your home.

The recipe of choice for most people is a classic homemade chicken noodle soup. For this soup, you’ll need 4 chicken breasts cut into small pieces, salt, pepper, and herbs to taste, 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil, 2 finely chopped celery stalks, 2 finely chopped small carrots, 3 finely chopped garlic cloves, 2 cups of egg noodles, and 2 cans of chicken broth. The first step is to season your chicken breasts with the herbs and spices of your choice. Then, add one of your tablespoons of olive oil to a large saucepan over medium heat, and cook and stir the chicken in the pan until browned, roughly 10 minutes. Set chicken breasts aside. Then, add your remaining oil to the pan and sautee the carrots, chicken, and garlic for roughly 7 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. After that, pour your chicken broth into the saucepan and deglaze by scraping up the bits of chicken and vegetables from the bottom of the hot pan, and bring to a boil. Add your egg noodles, and reduce the heat to medium-low. Simmer until the noodles are tender, roughly 6-8 minutes, and season with herbs of your choice. Ladle soup into bowls, and enjoy!
