Chick Soup

This one’s for all my girls.

I guess guys can get in on this, too. I mean, there’s meat in it, so the men will be happy.

Really, this soup is a good one for anyone! Plus, you can make it vegan/vegetarian if you want! It’s a real crowd-pleaser.

Actually, it’s more like a well-rounded soup. I have no idea if it’s a crowd-pleaser. I’m not that popular. Surprising, right? ;)

Honestly, since there’s chicken and chickpeas in it, I thought it’d be cute to call it chick soup. Ain’t I clever? Do you wanna be friends with me now? Yes? No? I have wine!

Make a pot of this. You’ll thank me.

Chick Soup

  • 2 T olive oil
  • 1/2 white onion, diced
  • 3 carrots, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, diced
  • 1 c. mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 bell pepper, diced (I used 2 mini bell peppers)
  • 2 chicken breasts, shredded ( I used this method to make the chicken)
  • 1 c. pearl barley
  • 1 can chickpeas, drained
  • 32 oz. chicken broth *You may need to adjust the amt of water, this soup is thick*
  • 1 t cumin
  • 2 t salt
  • 1 t garlic powder
  • 1 t smoked paprika
  • 1 t pepper
  • 2 T cilantro, chopped
In a large pot, heat oil on medium. Add veggies to post and saute for ten minutes, or until softened. Add chickpeas and seasonings. Stir and heat for five minutes. Pour chicken stock into pot. Add barley and stir to combine. Simmer on low for twenty minutes. Stir in chicken and cilantro. Serve and enjoy! 
*When reheating, add more water*
