It’s that time of year where everyone wants to make a change. We want to eat better, exercise, achieve our goals, and so on. We have been running on pure chaos since the holidays started, and now we are trying to get back into a groove. I like to start slow with getting myself together. I’ve been eating like crap, drinking a lot, and running around like crazy since November. I start focusing on myself again the Sunday before I go back to work after the New Year, and I do this with a pot of good old-fashion chicken soup. It’s a family recipe that reminds me of happy memories, and it’s healthy!

  • Ingredients:
  • 4-5 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 3-4 boneless skinless chicken thighs
  • 1 onion
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • 1 stalk of celery chopped
  • 1 package of carrots chopped
  • 6 chicken boullion
  • water to almost the top of the pot
  • salt, pepper, onion powder, garlic salt, garlic powder to taste

Put it all together in a pot and let it cook on low all day. You could do this in a crockpot too, but I’d cut everything in half.

Kluskis

  • 6-8 potatoes peeled and cut into 4.
  • 1-2 onions
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups of flour
  • food processor

Start boiling a pot of water.

Put the potatoes and onions in the food processor. Make sure you use a setting that really mashes up the potatoes.

Use a clean kitchen towel or cheese cloth to squeeze out all of the liquid. You should have a big potato ball. Put this into a large mixing bowl.

Crack two eggs and 1 cup of flour and stir in with the potatoes. Gradually add flour until you can make a ball with the potato without it falling apart.

Once the water is boiling drop  potato balls into the water. It should be about the size of a golf ball.

Let boil until the potato rises to the top. Take out of the water and continue the same process until you are out of the mix.

Serve the soup over the kluskis.
