Sick Day

Today I am sick... just a little cold really.  Actually it's the 1st time in over a month that I've fallen in the battle against the germies or allergens... And I take it as a great opportunity to rest...and eat.
Feeling this beat down coming on, I started a Chicken veggie soup in the crockpot. mmmm...

Simple. but perfect for a cold.  And the best thing about soups and the crockpot is that you can almost throw anything in and it comes out yummy.

Today's Chicken Veggie Soup

1 large boneless skinless chicken breast
2 Kale leaves pulled off the stems
2 Bok Choy or something choy bunches chopped.  They're greens ok. I couldn't understand what the sweet lady at the asian market called them.
1 carrot sliced
a few celery stalks chopped
1/2 an onion
1 qt Organic Chicken broth
toss it all in and let it cook all day.  (I used High heat for only 4 hrs)
Pull out the chicken breast.  chop it up and toss it back in.
serve as you please.  I like to top it with a little hot sauce for kicks ;)
