Homemade Chicken Soup

A good Chicken soup recipe has been used for everything from the title for a book series to the cure for the common cold. Chicken soup is one of those inexpensive recipes that goes a long way feeding a large family.

This recipe for chicken soup is one of my favorites as you can vary the recipe a bit by adding pre-cooked rice, small pasta noodles or dumplings to the finished recipe. This soup recipe can also be made by substituting leftover turkey from thanksgiving for the chicken and using prepared or canned chicken broth.

Chicken Soup Recipe

  • 1 whole chicken
  • 8-10 large carrots, diced
  • 5 stalks cellery, diced
  • 1 medium onion diced
  • 2 large sprigs fresh rosemary or 1 tablespoon dry
  • 1-2 tablespoons italian seasoning
  • salt & pepper

Place the chicken in a large pot and season well with salt, pepper & Italian seasoning. cover with water add rosemary and bring to a boil. reduce heat and simmer for at least 1 hour, or until chicken is fully cooked. remove chicken to platter and allow to cool enough to handle. meanwhile, strain chicken broth from pot through a mesh and return to medium heat. add cellery, onions and carrots and bring back to simmer. Debone chicken and dice into bite size pieces. add chicken back to soup. season with salt & Peper. if broth is too thick, add 1 can chicken stock.

soup is finished when carrots are tender. 1 cup fully cooked rice or small pasta noodles may be added a few minutes before serving.

best served with lots of crusty buttered bread!
