P2 Recipe- Chicken Tomato Basil Soup

Standard

This isn’t so much a recipe as it was just “throw things in a pan and cook” so, I apologize if the measurements are approximate at best… I just know it was super yummy and I’ll be making it a lot.

Chicken Tomato Basil Soup
100g ground or chopped  Chicken Breast
1 med-large vine ripe tomato
2 large garlic cloves, sliced
1 tsp dehydrated onion flakes
1/4tsp dried italian seasoning
1/8tsp chili flake
salt & pepper to taste
3 leaves fresh basil, cut into ribbons
 
1)Pre-heat a non-stick skillet on medium for a few minutes and add chicken, flattening with spatula into one layer.
2) Sprinkle the dried herbs, chili & onion flake and salt & pepper onto the chicken while browning on one side.
3) Flip the chicken to the other side and allow to brown evenly.
4) Remove all seeds from the tomato and cut into large chunks.
5) Break up the chicken into smaller pieces and add the Tomato and garlic.
6) Add about 1/4c-1/2c water to help the tomato break down and simmer for 5-10 minutes.
7) Smash the tomato with the back of a spatula to break it down and continue to simmer until right consistency.
8) Taste for seasoning and adjust as needed.
9) Turn off heat and fold in ribbons of basil to preserve color and fresh flavor.
