So I really don’t know what to call this soup! I found a similar recipe on Pinterest but then I didn’t have half of the ingredients so I improvised and it ended up being my favorite soup I’ve made. So. Good.
It’s the perfect mix of creamy and spicy for this frigid cold weather we have been having. Alex said it reminded him of chicken and dumplings. The ingredient list is long but it’s basically just dumping it all in a pot so don’t let that scare you away! Its a one pot recipe so it saves on dishes too!
4 tbs Olive oil
1-2 lbs chicken breast, chopped into bite size pieces
2 carrots, peeled and chopped
1/2 onion, chopped
4 cloves garlic
1 jalapeño, chopped
1/3 cups flour
8 cups chicken broth
3 tbs corn starch
2 chicken bullion cubes
1 can great northern beans, drained
1/2 tsp oregano, salt, and ground pepper
Dash of red pepper flakes
Approx. half a box of lasagna noodles
2 cups half and half (optional)
Heavy cream (optional)
Parmesan cheese (topping)
1. Heat 1tbs olive oil in the pot. Add the cut up chicken breasts and salt and pepper to taste. Cook until almost cooked through and remove from pot
2. Add the chopped carrot, onion and remaining olive oil to pot. Cook over medium high heat until cooked through. About 3-4 minutes
3. Add garlic and jalapeño and cook for about another minute. (Remove seeds if you want it less spicy. I left them in on ours)
4. Add flour while stirring continuously. It will be really thick!
5. Slowly add chicken broth. Use all expect for about a cup. Mix the remaining broth in a separate bowl with the cornstarch and then add that to the pot and stir.
6. Add chicken, beans, bullion, and all spices to the soup. Add the lasagna broken into small strips. (Smaller is better since you’re eating them with a spoon! Any other pasta will work as well)
7. Bring to a boil then reduce to a simmer. Cook until pasta is tender.
8. Add half and half! (This is technically optional too. If you want a healthier soup leave it out, it’s still just as good! I like comfort food though.) also can add a little heavy cream if you so desire.
9. Mix well and you’re finished! We topped it off with Parmesan but you can use any cheese you like.
We love love loved this soup! I had a lot of questions about it when I posted it on my Instagram story so I thought I would share! Soups in the winter are my favorite.
I hope you all enjoy!
