Chicken Pot Pie Soup
(I at least double this for my family)
1/4 cup butter
2 chicken bouillon cubes (smash into a powder) or 2 tsp. bouillon powder
1 tsp. basil
1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1/4 cup flour
2 cups milk (or 1 cup water, 1 cup milk)
1 potato, chopped
1/2 cup carrots, chopped
1 or 2 chicken breasts cooked and cubed
1/4 cup frozen peas
1/4 cup frozen corn
Sauté onion in butter. Add bouillon, basil and then Worcestershire sauce. Stir in milk.
Bring to a boil and stir until thick (boil at least a minute, stirring constantly).
Add potato and carrots. Cook until tender. Add frozen peas, frozen corn and cooked chicken. Heat through.
I also have added sautéed mushrooms just omitted the flour to make it gluten free. Yum! I also have just thrown in all in a crockpot both times so it can cook away all day and be done in the evening.
Another big thumbs up! I love soup. I love making it, it smells up the kitchen nicely, and tastes so yummy when you are done. This soup was awesome! Loved all the veggies in it, it was a hit with my family, and the touch of lemon was perfect. Find the recipe here.
This was from the book Practical Paleo and should be made with thighs. I did it with boneless, skinless thighs the first time. This time I did it with some drumsticks. We
preferred the thighs.
Grain Free Granola Balls
I’ve made these a couple times. I compare these to a soup, where you can throw anything in the fridge into it. This is a great recipe to get rid of extra seeds, dried fruit, and raw nuts. Just mix together and bake. I decided to process the nuts in the food processor and cut the dried fruit into tiny pieces so my baby could eat it. You can find the recipe here.
