I sometimes browse through recipes online to find something interesting to make by myself. I never stick to original recipe. I do everything in my own taste, add my own components. All I look at is how to cook certain products.
I found lately an idea for chicken soup with spinach, but components in my dinner were different.
What you need?
- chicken breast
- soy sauce
- chicken and beef broth cube
- chinese pasta
Proportions depend on personal taste. Some people prefer more intense taste with less chicken or spinach and some people may prefer less intense taste with larger amount of products.
How to cook it?
First prepare chicken breasts. Cut them into pieces and add oil and curry. Try not to add too much oil. I added 1 spoon of curry, but I could have added more so taste would be more intense. Mix it good and leave it for like 20-30 to marinate.
Next you can prepare spinach. I used like 100g, but of course you can add more. Clean it and cut off its ‘tail’ (sorry I have no idea how it’s called in English). Pour boiling water over it and leave it for around 2 minutes. Then put it to another vessel with cold water. Strain it and leave it for now. I also teared it into smaller pieces so it will be easier to eat.
Now it’s time for soup. Boil water and add 1 or 2 cubes of broth and few spoons of soy sauce. How much you add depends on how much soup you are preparing and if you prefer more or less intense taste. Let it boil for few minutes and add chicken. Boil it for 5 minutes and then add spinach. Let everything boil again for few minutes.
Voila! Your dinner is ready! I didn’t find chinese pasta in my town so I bought normal one. It was tasty anyway. Next time I’ll just add more curry and soy sauce.
