If a snowstorm blankets the Philadelphia region this winter, shoveling the front stoop and that hard-to-find parking spot may be a very chilling and tiring exercise. Upon returning to the comforts of home, the body may require some reheating with a mug of hot cocoa or a hearty bowl of soup.
Michael Werner of the 100 block of Durfor Street prefers going with his Mexi-Chicken Soup. Of course, snow is not a prerequisite for making and enjoying several spoonfuls of his recipe. ■
3 13.75-ounce cans of chicken broth
1 15.25-ounce can of whole kernel corn
1 14.5-ounce can of diced tomatoes
1 15-ounce can of red kidney beans
1 pound of boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-size pieces
Combine the broth, corn, tomatoes, beans and chicken in a large saucepan. Heat, stirring occasionally, until the soup reaches a boil. Continue to cook for an additional five minutes. Remove from the heat. Cover and let stand for about 15 minutes.
