Simple Chicken Soup

It's that time of the year, flu is here ... and hubby is down with the flu .... and its time for some yummy chicken soup ...

( Serves 2 or may be your hubby alone if he really likes it ;) )

Chicken         1 boneless breast or thigh fillet
Carrot            1 medium
Celery            1 stalk
Onion             1 small
Potato            1 small
Green beans   4-5 
Spinach          8-10 leaves
Oil                  1 tsp
Water             3/4 cup
Salt                 to taste
Pepper           1/2 tsp


I call this a simple chicken soup because it is real simple to prepare it.
Dice the carrot, celery, potato, beans, onion and cut the chicken into cubes.
Add the oil to the bottom of the pressure cooker and warm to medium heat.
Add the onion and saute till its becomes transparent. Now add the rest of the diced vegetables and saute for another 2-3 minutes.
Add the chicken, water and enough salt and cook till 1 whistle or until chicken is cooked. 
Once the pressure is released, open and add the spinach and simmer it on low heat for 2 minutes.
Add some pepper and it is ready to serve!!
