My 11 year old son loves to cook, in fact he is bugging me to create him a cooking Youtube channel. Last week during one of our no school snow days, he whipped up a pot of Kids 30 Minute Homemade Chicken Soup. He had watched the movie Ratatouille the night before and if you have seen that movie, you know the Rat in the movie,  makes an amazing Stew! He was inspired the next day to throw everything in our fridge and cupboards in a pot and make a soup.

A happy boy.

He was pretty proud of his soup and I must admit, the Chicken Soup was delicious. The best part, I didn’t have to make it! -ha. Now if I could just get him to clean up his mess after he cooks, I would be all set! Do you have kids or grandkids, this is such an easy recipe and they will have so much fun making it. When my son first started cooking, it was kind of painful as it was just easier and faster to do it myself but I took the time to allow him to figure it out and now he has the basics. He did take a 2 (6 weeks each) cooking classes that were amazing. He learned how to chop, knife safety and stove safety. Stuff that I could have taught him but as you know with kids, they tend to listen to someone else and not you! -ha.
