Make It

1. Heat olive oil in large saucepan over medium heat. Add apple, celery, onion, carrot, and garlic. Cook and stir for 6 minutes. Add in chicken, parsley and water or stock. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, until chicken is thoroughly cooked, about 20 minutes. Remove from heat and cool slightly.

2. Place soup, half at a time, into a food processor or blender and puree to desired consistency. Distribute mixture evenly among your favorite food storage containers. This mixture will keep refrigerated for up to 3 days.

3. For older children or adults, skip the pureeing step and add in some small pasta such as orzo about 7 minutes before soup is finished boiling.
