Savory Chicken Soup!

Yesterday I made homemade chicken soup for dinner. (It's a good thing since sickness is in my house!) This is my own recipe, and it is very yummy (imho). I hope you like it!

This photo shows some of the soup gone already. The recipe makes a generous amount!

Savory Chicken Soup

Roaster Chicken
Bay Leaf
Onion, Garlic, Celery, Carrots
Pasta Noodles
Salt and Pepper
Wash and place a roaster chicken in a 6 qt. pot. Cover with coarse salt and peppercorns (or regular salt and pepper will do) and fill water almost to top to cover chicken. Cut onion, 2 cloves of garlic, carrots, and celery into large chunks and add to pot. Bring water to a boil and simmer for about 2 hours. By this time, the chicken is ready to fall off the bone! Strain the broth (I do this into another pot) and discard all vegs. Let chicken cool for a bit and then pull off all of the meat. Put broth back in large pot with HALF of the chicken and add two or three sliced carrots. Boil for a few minutes and then add about half a box of your favorite chicken soup pasta noodles. Cook until noodles are done. Flavor with salt, pepper, and parsley flakes. Taste and season to liking!

(NOTE: You can use the other half of the chicken for the next night's meal). ;-)


Enjoy your soup!
