What does Erl do when stuck with a summer cold?  Step one – attempt to kill it with bourbon.  Step two – go old school:

OJ and chicken noodle soup.

Chicken Noodle for Sickies:

  • 3 cups chicken stock
  • 1 cup shredded chicken
  • 1 cup egg noodles (and only egg noodles)
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup chopped carrots
  • 1/2 cup chopped celery
  • 6 cloves chopped garlic
  • 3 Tbs chopped parsley
  • 1 medium chopped tomato (optional)
  • 1 Tbs olive oil
  • salt and pepper

In large pot, heat olive oil over medium heat and add onions and salt. When onions are sweaty (schweddy), add the carrots and celery.  After a couple minutes, clear a spot on the bottom of the pan and add the garlic, stirring in after you can smell the deliciousness (about 30 seconds).  Add in tomatoes, if using, and stock and bring to a boil.  Add noodles, chicken and some pepper, cooking until the noodles are ready.  Add in parsley, season with more salt and pepper to taste, and remove from heat.
