This is less of a recipe and more of a guideline or a list of what I did my 3rd time making home made chicken soup. This time it turned out yummy!
1 bag regular carrots (I used all but 3)
1 cluster of celery (all)
½ a large white onion
3-5 garlic cloves (the little bits that you pull off)
2 packages of chicken broth, 32 oz each
6 cups water
3 tablespoons pepper (or to taste)
3 liberal shakes of basil (or to taste)
Chicken: I used half a package of frozen boneless thigh pieces, thawed and chopped.
|Ignore the cherries, they don’t go in the soup.|
Bring broth and water to a boil. Reduce heat to medium high and add chopped veggies.
When veggies are tender, increase heat to high and add chicken.
Cook for t10 minutes adding the spices and stirring.
Turn to medium heat and let cook another 5-7 minutes until chicken is tender.
Remove from heat and allow to rest overnight in pot.
Separate into smaller containers and enjoy!
