Chicken Alphabet Soup
3 medium carrots, sliced
2 celery ribs, diced
1 medium onion, diced
1 T olive oil
2 qt. water
8 chicken bouillon cubes
4 chicken breasts, cooked and cubed
1/4 t dried thyme
1 1/2 c uncooked alphabet pasta
2 T minced fresh parsley (I keep this in a baggie in the freezer so it's easily accessible, just like you Mom!)
-In a large pot saute veggies in oil until tender. Stir in water, chicken, thyme, and bouillon cubes.
-Bring to a boil. You can then let this simmer as long as you like, but if you need it ASAP, once it comes to a boil add pasta. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, for 10 minutes or until tender.
-Stir in parsley.
