Try this Chicken Soup recipe, or contribute your own.
In a large pot, put chicken (minus innards, etc.), garlic salt, pepper, creole, Back Bay, or other seasoning, & bay leaf. Cover with water. Cook chicken 1 hour. While chicken is cooking, chop onions, celery, and green bell pepper. Most people put carrots in their soup, but I dont like carrots, so I leave them out. Remove chicken from stock. Cool , skin, bone, and cut up. Leave time for chicken to cool - its no fun to bone hot chicken. Give the skin and wing tips to the dogs, but not the bones. Chicken bones are not good for dogs. Reserve 1/2 of the breast for chicken salad another day. While meat is cooling and being boned, let stock cook down some. Skim fat off stock. Add chicken , tomatoes, chicken broth, onions, celery and green bell pepper to stock. Add more seasoning if desired. Sometimes I add cilantro. A dash or two of Tabasco Sauce wouldnt hurt a baby. Cook 1/2 hour. Quarter (or cut into bite size pieces, if using larger potatoes.) Add potatoes and corn or beans to soup. Cook another 1/2 hour. NOTES : This is a favorite comfort soup for us. Its nice summer or winter. I use whatever vegetables I have around. Can also use frozen soup mix vegetables. NB: If you use potatoes, they dont freeze well. but we usually dont have any left to freeze. Recipe by: Lou Parris Posted to recipelu-digest Volume 01 Number 378 by Lou Parris
Mrsswill 2y agoI gave this a very good rating because this was a very good simple soup and I loved the commentary in the instructions :) I already had a cooked roasted chicken so I had to change it up a bit. I added all the spices, subbed chili pepper flakes for the Tabasco and went a little but crazy with the veggies (see picture). I just cooked the potatoes & carrots.until boil, added chicken and veggies and then on low for for 15 mins
