DJ’s Chicken Soup for Kids


  • 2 boxes of organic chicken stock (Imagine brand is good)
  • 1 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 chop 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.
