Recipe Tips and Tricks

There are a few tricks to bringing out the flavor in this hcg chicken soup recipe. The first is to choose a hearty and delicious broth. A pantry isn’t complete without a good quality broth. I personally prefer the Pacific Foods Organic Chicken Broth, or even the Kitchen Basics Organic Chicken Broth. Broth makes a HUGE difference! Don’t use a thinned out high sodium broth with lots of ingredients you can’t read.

Another tip is to brown or sear the meatballs in a non stick skillet before adding them to the boil. This will help to caramelize the natural sugars in the onion and chicken which will result in a deeper flavor.

Also: Picking the right chicken and fresh vegetables goes a long way. This diet requires excellent natural flavors in order to remain excited about the food that you do eat. Make sure you are purchasing the highest quality, organic hcg ingredients.
