How To Make The Best Homemade Chicken Soup Recipe
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 leeks. Then I add additional onion, carrots, and celery. You can add any veggies that you like!
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.
I made a rather large pot because we love the leftovers.
Add bouillon to the soup mix – you can use the cubes too, but I prefer the granulated.
Once the broth is cooking for about 15 minutes add your chicken.
Stir every few minutes.
I love adding Orzo. You can add this the last few minutes of cooking.
And this is the delicious results!
You can see the multitude of veggies and pasta goodness!
