About this recipe: How is it that nothing but chicken and vegetables simmered together can be so satisfying?
This is a great base recipe. Experiment with additions like fresh chopped herbs, pasta or rice, shredded cabbage or butter beans.
Something else. Pretty good soup. I used a roasted chicken carcass from our previous nights dinner as I feel it adds more flavour then the uncooked chicken. I also used tinned chicken stock in lieu of the water, along with my usual seasonings. - 18 Jul 2008
Your basic chicken soup recipe found in most general cook books. It is the old reliable of chicken soup recipes. I appreciated the hint to cut the carrots, celery and onions in half. I had always cut them up in small pieces, and then when I would seive the stock, it was messy to try to retrieve the cut up veggies to put them back in the soup. This is so much easier! When I seive the stock, I place a piece of kitchen roll in the seive. It makes for a nice clear stock. I also cook some noodles to add to the soup. I do not like to add the noodles directly to the pot of soup, because the noodles will absorb too much of the stock. - 18 Jul 2008
