Lemon Pepper Pappardelle Chicken Soup – quite the tongue twister of a recipe name but trust me…it’s oh, so good. If you are feeling under the weather and yearning for spring, this soup is your remedy! It’s a modern spin on your grandmother’s chicken noodle soup with a vibrant lemon pepper pasta and hefty splash of fresh lemon juice. It’s both comforting and refreshing and has been on rotation in our home this winter.
One of my strategies for posting more frequently this year is simply; to share more everyday things. Fortunately, when I started to make another pot of this delicious soup, I remembered my intention and pulled out my camera to document making the recipe. I hope sharing these glimpses of an average day will connect with you. When I read other blogs, they’re my favorite type of posts. Plus, it feels good to not stress about creating content and actually just live it. So welcome to my kitchen, let’s make Lemon Pepper Pappardelle Chicken Soup…
This is one of those happy accident recipes that has found itself in heavy rotation in our kitchen. It began with a solitary weekend at home while my husband was away on a scuba diving trip. All I wanted to do after weeks of traveling was to stay home in my pj’s and have a Netflix marathon. It’s a lightened up, protein packed version of my favorite comfort food with a healthy dose of veggies to replace most of the rice found in your standard fried rice recipes. I like mine on the spicy side but feel free to adjust the heat level to whatever strikes your fancy.
You may notice this recipe is for one serving but it can easily be doubled or quadrupled if you have a large enough wok or skillet. And although the list of ingredients may seem long, none are exotic and all are readily available at most markets.
Every year I challenge myself with finding new ways to use all the oranges we have at our disposal. In fact, I have a secret Pinterest board dedicated solely for this purpose. I’ve saved all kinds of things; cakes, breads, glazes, salads, donuts, infused oils, cleaning products, holiday decorations …you name it, I’ve pinned it. I’m not sure I’ll ever attempt making all of them but they’re there as inspiration should the mood strike. With oranges being in season during the winter months, I figure those cold lazy days could be made useful by making a few things.
