Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 1 hour and 10 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour and 20 minutes
Servings: 6 to 8

Ingredients

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
  • 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!

I love making homemade chicken soup. I add a crazy amount of vegetables to mine: broccoli, new potatoes, celery, carrots, green beans, zucchini, yellow squash, onion, mushrooms. I especially love the broccoli in it because it breaks apart and gives the soup a beautiful color.
