Very Easy Chicken Noodle Soup

  • 1 1/2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, diced
  • 3 stalks celery, chopped
  • 3 medium carrots, diced
  • 2 medium zucchinis, diced
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 4 cups hot water
  • 2 chicken bouillon cubes
  • 4 pieces of Mastic (I use Greek Mastic)
  • 3 cardamom pods
  • 1 star anise
  • 1/2 cup of your favorite noodles, vermicelli or orzo pasta
  • salt & pepper to taste

In a large soup pot, heat butter and oil over medium-high heat. Add the chicken, mastic, cardamom, star anise and sauté for 7 minutes. Add the onion, garlic, half the celery and sauté for another 5 minutes or until the onion is translucent. Add the chicken bouillon cubes, black pepper, hot water and bring all to a soft boil. Add remaining celery, diced carrots and simmer covered for about 20 minutes. Add the zucchini and noodles and simmer for another 5 minutes. Adjust salt & pepper to your taste.

Stay warm & Enjoy! 👩🏻‍🍳👌🏻
