Sicilian Style Chicken Soup

My mom has been making this recipe since before I was born, I think her mother made it before she did! This chicken soup is hearty, wholesome, makes you feel good & when served with some extra Papa Vince EVOO on top, the flavor is out of this world!

Prep: 15 mins, Cook Time: 45 mins Servings: 5-6

2 lbs chicken (thighs or breast, we used both)
1lb carrots
1 large onion
3 or 4 white potatoes
2 sweet potatoes
5-6 cloves of garlic (or more or less depending on your taste)
Fresh Italian Parsley
Papa Vince Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO)
Papa Vince Sea Salt

1.Put on a large pot of water to boil.
2. Chop the garlic and mix with the Italian parsley, 1 teaspoon of Papa Vince Sea Salt & 1/2 cup of Papa Vince EVOO (we used a pestle & mortar to mix)
3. Coat the raw chicken with the seasoning prepared in step 2 and leave it to season for 10 minutes. This makes all the difference to the flavor.
4. Peel & chop your vegetables into large chunks. Use the Papa Vince Peeler.
5. Add the chicken to the boiling water and leave it to cook for 10-15 minutes.
6. Add the vegetables and leave the soup to cook on a high heat for 30 minutes.
7. Taste & add more salt if required. Serve with some extra EVOO on top for added flavor.

Traditional basil pesto, a well-known and well-loved Italian sauce, was the inspiration for this recipe. Its simplicity allows each ingredient to shine through and when crushed together, or pestare in Italian, creates a perfect balance of flavor.  I chose to pair it with radicchio which has some amazing health benefits including a boost to your immune system.
