1 hour homemade chicken soup! It'll cure what ails you!

Whether you're looking for a lean and healthy all-in-one meal or need some "Jewish Penicillin" to get over that lingering cold or flu, here's the way Outback Willie does Chicken Soup!

As in everything, start with the Best Ingredients.

Here's my supporting cast!

Quarter and season the chicken with salt and pepper and my favorite spice mix of Hot Madras Curry Powder, Garam Masala, Cumin, Turmeric and Allspice.

Get the pot smoking hot and sear the seasoned chicken on both sides till it's brown.  That sears the seasoning to the chicken and seals in the juices.

Meanwhile, back at the cutting board, prep the "hard veggies" - sweet onion, peppers, and carrots.

Remove the chicken, deglaze the pot and all the goodies left in it from searing the chicken with a few glug glugs of a good white wine.

And then throw the prep'd veggies in and roll and saute for 5 mins.

Add the chicken back in and add a carton of organic chicken broth.

Throw in the "soft" veggies - squash, zucchini and baby bella mushrooms.

Bring everything to a boil for at least 30 mins and then remove the chicken.

Remove the skin and debone and cube and season the chicken.

Return the chicken to the pot and add chopped cilantro, basil and a 2 handfuls of kale.

Add water as needed to create as much broth as you want - I added 1 additional cup of water and stirred everything together and boiled for 15 more minutes.

There ya go Baby..... with a backdrop of Jasmine Rice....

Have a bowl of that and it'll cure what ails you!

That's Chicken Soup Outback Willie Style!
