For initial chicken preparation:
- 1 whole chicken
- 4 stalks fresh celery, cut up
- 1 large carrot, cut up (or 5 to 6 baby carrots)
- 1/2 of a large onion, cut up
- 1 bay leaf
- salt, pepper and seasonings of your choice
For vegetables to be added into soup:
- 1/2 of a large onion, chopped
- 4 - 6 celery stalks, chopped
- 4 - 6 large carrots, chopped (or as many chopped baby carrots as you like)
- 2 - 3 tablespoons olive oil
Here's how to make it:
In a large stock pot, cover one whole fresh chicken with water. To the pot, add initial celery, carrot, onion, bay leaf, salt, pepper and seasonings. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for about an hour or until chicken is done. Remove chicken from liquid and set aside to cool. De-bone the chicken, tear into bite-sized pieces and put back into liquid.
In a large sauté pan, add 2 to 3 tablespoons olive oil. Add the additional onion, celery and carrots and sauté until al dente, about 6 to 8 minutes. (Feel free to add other vegetables you like, such a broccoli or potatoes.) Add the cooked vegetables to the liquid. That's it. Soup's on!
