I saw this awesome spring chicken soup recipe while browsing my Facebook and I HAD to make it!
- In a large pot over medium heat, heat olive oil. Add onion, carrots, celery, and asparagus, and cook until soft. Add garlic and cook until fragrant, then add oregano, salt, and pepper.
- Pour in chicken broth and thyme. Bring to a boil then add chicken and lower heat. Let simmer until chicken is cooked through, 10 minutes.
- Remove chicken from pot and shred with two forks. Add chicken, lemon juice, and corn to pot. Cook until warmed through, 5 minutes. Garnish with lemon slices and parsley to serve.
I made pesto grilled cheese sandwiches to go along with the hearty soup.
The homemade pesto recipe is super simple:
- Basil (Thai basil is also fine to use)
- Pine nuts
- Olive oil
- Garlic cloves
Blend ingredients in a food processor or blender. It is so good! The best pesto I’ve ever eaten!
