Chicken Soup...

...for the gloomy day's soul.  Yesterday was just so gloomy and drizzly that I really wanted to make chicken soup and pies.  The soup was delicious and my coworkers enjoyed the pies.

Gloomy Day Chicken Soup
1 pack chicken thighs
1 onion, roughly chopped
1 head garlic, minced
4 stalks celery, roughly chopped
8 qts water
1 tsp rosemary
2 tsp thyme
2 tbsp black pepper
1 tbsp kosher salt
2 heads broccoli
2 eggs
1/2 lb pasta
Sweat onion and garlic over medium-high heat in a large pot.  Add chicken to brown. Once chicken is browned, add celery, water, rosemary, thyme, pepper, and salt.  Bring to a boil.  Let simmer for an hour.   In a separate pot, cook pasta and drain.  When ready to eat, add broccoli, pasta, and egg.  Cook for two minutes.

Browned chicken, onion and garlic.  I added the herbs first, but you can just
do this when you add the water to ensure that they don't burn.

Everything in the pot.

Last step.  The white blob is where my poached eggs are.
