DJ’s Chicken Soup for Kids

June 29th, 2010 by Chef Bill

Ingredients
2 boxes organic chicken stock (Imagine brand is good)
I large organic skinless, boneless chicken breast
5 carrots, chopped into small pieces
3 celery stocks, chopped into small pieces
1/2 onion, chopped, ¼” dice
3 cloves garlic, peeled but left whole
1 large handful of parsley, tied with kitchen string
1 cup of any or any combo of the following frozen peas, fresh or frozen corn, fresh or frozen broccoli chopped into bite-size pieces, zucchini chopped finely, or any other veggies you have on-hand that your kids might like.
1/2 cup of leftover plain pasta, any shape, already cooked (optional)
Salt and pepper, to taste
Time: 30 minutes, from start to finish

In a large saucepan, add chicken stock, chicken breast (no need to chopped in yet), carrots, celery, onion, garlic and parsley. Bring to a boil and simmer until chicken is fully poached, about 20 minutes.

Remove chicken breast with a slotted spoon and place on a cutting board. Remove parsley and discard. Chop chicken into very small pieces and return to pot with vegetables and pasta, if using. Simmer everything until veggies are cooked through. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Healthy Meals

Bills Great Meals, a customized in-home personal chef service, is now available for busy families in the New York  area. Bills Great Meals is owned and operated by Bill McCabe and offers ‘palate-specific’ personal meals cooked with fresh ingredients in private homes.

Bills clients appreciate the service. “It gives us precious time together at the end of a busy day. No shopping . . . no cooking . . . no cleaning up. For us, it’s a luxury we can afford,” says Dr. Norman Haywood, a busy physician and client of Bill’s. Janette his wife agrees, “When we add up the food and restaurant bills we realize we aren’t spending any more than we did before . . . but we’re eating like kings.”

Chef McCabe meets with each client to determine their specific dietary needs. The menus are agreed upon and a cooking day is selected. I shop for all the food, come into the client’s home every other week to prepare their meals. Then I refrigerate, freeze them and clean up the kitchen. “I leave nothing behind but a mouth watering aroma and great food,” says Chef McCabe. “The cost is about the same that people are currently spending on food shopping and eating out.”

Chef Bill McCabe is a member of the American Personal Chef Association (APCA).

Perfect Hard Boiled Eggs

Place eggs in saucepan with water to cover as usual. When water comes to a boil remove from heat and let set 20 minutes covered. The eggs will finish cooking, yolks perfectly centered and no green every time.
