Chicken Soup on a rainy day.

We are right in the middle of the rainy season on Guam so our days of being able to BBQ are limited. But I like nothing better than to eat a fresh, hot bowl of chicken soup on a rainy day. Put this over hot white rice and top with lemon finadene and you have one satisfying meal.

That's just what I did yesterday. As a matter of fact my wife, Lupe, has been down with a cold and congestion so I felt a good soup would be just what the doctor ordered.

Here is what I made...

Chicken soup with cabbage and green onions and topped with lemon finadene. My wife also added fresh cilantro to her soup.

And here is the after photo...

I don't think I need to tell you all how much we enjoyed this hot soup on a rainy day.

Here is the recipe:

1 ea. Chicken fryer cut into small pieces
½ head of cabbage
3 green onions
4 cups corn
1 can cream corn
6 chicken bouillon cubes
Fresh ground black pepper to taste
Salt to taste
2 tbsp oil
12 cups of water

Cut the chicken into bite–size pieces.
Sauté the chicken in a stock pot with the oil until browned.
Add the 12 cups of water along with the chicken bouillon cubes and boil for about ½ hour.
Add the black pepper while the chicken is boiling.
Cut up your cabbage. I cut the half head in half again and then into 1 inch strips.
Dice up your green onions.
Rinse your corn.
When the ½ hour is up add the corn and can of cream corn.
Cook for another 5 minutes.
Season with salt to taste.
Add in the cabbage and green onions and turn off the heat.
Stir the soup and check the seasoning and adjust if necessary.

Hope you enjoy this basic recipe.

Until next time....
