Who doesn’t love a One Pot Meal?I absolute love them because they’re quick, you get to throw everything in one pot and everybody gets full! WINNING!Today I’m sharing a meal that I create in many variations.I hoe you use this recipe to motivate your creativity and of course fill your family’s belly.
It’s still a bit chili here in the Chi-Town area and I look for any excuse to cook up a pot of soup. A few of the many reasons I enjoy cooking soup…
- They’re stress free to cook.
- There’s a million and one varieties of soup.
- We always have leftovers.
- Can freeze for later.
- It’s warming to your cold freak’n soul when it’s 0 below outside!
This Chicken & Broccoli soup recipe you can print out for later or watch along with the video that’s embedded below at the very end of this post.
Let’s get this soup started, right!
2.5 lbs. Chicken Tenders cut into small cube size pieces
2 cups Broccoli Florets
1 large Chopped Onion
64 oz. Chicken Broth
Old Bay Seasoning
1/4 cup flour & water (at the end to thicken your soup)
We’re going to start off with a nice size pot or stockpot to cook our soup in. Add in some Olive Oil and allow it to heat without burning.
While your olive oil is heating we’re going to season our chicken with the Old Bay season, Basil & Rosemary and mix it up well.
Sauteed your onions and allow them to get beautifully golden brown around the edges.
Once your onions have become translucent in color we’re going to add the chicken and allow it to cook thoroughly.
Now it’s time to add in our chicken broth.
Stir it in, place lid on pot and allow it to come to a full boil.
Once it’s reached a full boil turn the heat down low and allow it to simmer 1 hour. After your soup has simmered for one hour we’re going to add in the broccoli. Stir in your broccoli and place lid back on pot and allow it to cook for another 20 minutes.
When those 20 minutes are up we’re going to add in something to thicken up our soup. I use a flour and water mixture. Take 1/4 cup flour…
and add 1/4 cup of cold water.
When I add my water to my mixture I add it gradually. If the paste is too thick I add more water until I get it the proper consistency. Like the paste below is too thick.
so I added more water
Stir it up well and try to remove as many lumps as possible.
Next add it to your soup and stir in continuously. This will make sure that it doesn’t clump up in your soup.
At this time we’re going to add in 2 Bay Leaves. You’re going to also taste your broth and see do you need to add in any of those previous ingredients. If so, add them in at this time to taste, cover with lid and cook for 10 additional minutes, turn off eye and allow to rest.
Last thing to do is to serve up some of this warm deliciousness.
