Rule of Thumb: Even if we are in a hurry, cook healthy and don’t sacrifice flavors.
So, I came home after playing a round of golf with my husband and didn’t feel like eating out, it was cold outside and I just wanted to shower and get on my jammies. I still had no idea of what to cook. Upon arrival I checked my fridge and hallelujah, the night before, I had purchase a rotisserie chicken, removed bones and skin. Well, there it was, looking at me. So, I decided on chicken turmeric and whatever I have in the freezer soup. Don’t laugh at my ingredients because the soup was healthy-delicious!
