What's for Dinner

Emergency Soup

It is an "Emergency" when you don't know what to make for Dinner. This recipe is perfect for a hectic day (or can even be made ahead of time).

1 to 2 cans of Chicken Breast (or you can use a Rotisserie Cooked Chicken pulled off the bone from the Market)
1/2 cup of cubed Carrots
1 Cup of half inch Potato cubes
4 cups water or broth ( I used 3 cans broth and 1 can of water)
1/2 cup Celery Slices
1 Onion cut in shreds
1/4 cup Butter
Salt and Pepper to taste
Herbs and Spices

Cook Carrot, Celery and onion in the melted butter for 10 minutes

Cook Potatoes in boiling water for 5 minutes. Drain and Rinse in cold water.

Add Potatoes to the other vegetables.

Add the Broth or Water

Add Chicken

Add your favorite herbs or spices

Cook for 1 Hour on medium low heat.

if you're into gizmos, you ought to look into getting a pressure cooker.

I bet that soup would take 10 minutes or so in one. If you get the hang of how long things take to cook, you don't have to rely on pressure cooker recipes.

veggies take around 10 minutes, and meat takes 12-15 minutes. It saves on time and energy, which is always a good thing.
