Serves 5

This is an easy and delicious carb free alternative to chicken noodle soup!

Ingredients

  • 2 carrots, chopped
  • 2 celery stals, chopped,
  • 1 onion, minced
  • 2 chicken breasts, bone in-skin on
  • 3 corn ears, corn cut off (keep the cobs)
  • 5-6 cups of water
  • Salt and pepper

Directions

Sauté the carrots, celery and onion with the olive oil for 5-10 minutes.

Add the chicken and keep on cooking for an additional 5 minutes until the chicken browns a little, this will give so much flavor.

Add the water, the corn cobs and some salt and pepper to taste.

Bring to boil, then simmer for 15-20 minutes.

Remove the chicken from the soup and let it cool a little.

Discard the cobs.

Removed the skin and bones form the chicken and shred it. Bring back to the pot, add corn kernels and cook for 2 minutes. 

I like it better when the corn is still on the crunchy side, so I barely cook it for 1 minute.

Et Voila, Bon Appetit!
