  • 1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breast
  • 8 cups water
  • 3-4 large carrots, chopped
  • 3-4 celery stalks, chopped
  • 1 tbsp garlic, peeled and minced
  • 1 tbsp shallots
  • 1 tbsp chopped parsley
  • 1 tbsp ghee, butter, or olive oil * I use Kerrygold
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 box Pad Thai Rice Noodles * I used Annie Chuns
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • Optional Mix-Ins: 1/2 green bell pepper, 4 green onions, 1 tbsp of assorted dried herbs
  1. In a large pot, heat the cooking fat (olive oil, ghee or butter) over medium heat. Add the shallots, carrots, celery and garlic. Cook for 5 minutes until vegetables are soft.

  2. Pour the water into the pot. Add the parsley, salt and pepper (along with any other herbs you enjoy) and bring to a boil.

  3. Add the raw chicken breasts to the pot, add the bay leaf, reduce the heat to low. Simmer for 55 minutes.

  4. Turn heat back up to high. Remove the chicken with a fork, shred into pieces and return it to the pot.

  5. Once the soup in near boiling again, add the Pad Thai rice noodles. Boil 4-5 minutes until tender. Serve hot, or freeze in separate containers and store for later.
