How To Make The Best Homemade Chicken Soup Recipe - Sassy Townhouse Living

This recipe is bound to warm your belly and your soul too! Everyone has their own personal twist on this classic and that’s what makes each recipe uniquely delicious. I think you will enjoy this recipe. It’s loaded with fresh veggies, herbs, and spices. And for an extra punch, I added my favorite pasta – Orzo.

Orzo is great for Chicken Soup, this pasta is small enough not to be too overpowering in the soup and adds a nice punch of pasta flavor. 

I hope you get to enjoy this warm and hearty chicken soup. Now that we are in the midst of fall and winter is slowly approaching, this soup is the perfect answer for feeding your belly and warming your soul!

I begin by gathering my vegetables. I always like to buy a pre-packaged soup mix because it has the core herbs and a nice assortment of vegetables. Soup mix comes with turnips, assorted herbs, scallions, turnips, and leeksThen I add additional onion, carrots, and celery. You can add any veggies that you like! 

Prep Veggies

I generally use 2-3 containers of chicken broth to get started.

Dice all of the veggies first. I like to cut them into small to medium sizes.

I always like to peel my celery and carrots to remove the damaged outside and get rid of the strings from the celery.

I used to use a whole chicken cut up to make my chicken soup but then discovered how much easier it is to buy chicken cutlets instead. I like cutting them up into cubes and boiling them before adding them into the stock.

Boil the chicken for about 5 minutes before adding it to the broth.
