This is a great and hearty soup that always makes me feel better on those sick rainy days.
Remove skin from chicken thighs and lightly salt. In large pot add water, chicken, tomato paste, onion, bouillon, garlic, and oregano. Bring to a boil then reduce heat to low/Med. let simmer for 30 minutes. Add potatoes and carrots cover for another 30 minutes add saffron, lemon juice, and salt & pepper.
You can add noodles if you like
If you don't have saffron you can use one one packet for Sazon Goya with Culantro and Annato.

RhumBaba 6m agoWow! I really liked this soup. I made broth with leftover whole roasted chicken and I took the advice of another reviewer and used sweet potato. Also subbed lime juice because I had an excess of limes and lime seemed authentic. The seasoning I used was straight from this recipe. I like the versatility and am adding this to my faves.
Redheadeded 1y agoIt came out great! Used a little less lemon juice, per one of the reviews. . But over all definitely a recipe I am adding to my list of regulars. ;)
SeattleNick 1y agoMade some alterations based on the reviews and was more specific about quantities. Oh, and omitted the expensive saffron. Here's what I did differently: - 3 Yukon Gold potatoes cubed - 3 cloves garlic, chopped - a teaspoon or so of turmeric - Salt and pepper to taste - 3 cubes of chicken bullion Added some pasta and it turned out great. bullion
robbgriffin 2y agoPerfect and simple. I used chicken broth and topped soup with avocado and toasted tortilla slices.
RenSeattle 2y agoGreat recipe, very tasty!
angelalaw 3y agoI was so excited to make this soup. But I was really disappointed. I love Lemon but 1/2 cup of lemon was way too much. I taste nothing but lemon juice when eating this. Was it suppose to be that way? It over powered everything else. So the Spices were lacking. I am not really a cook. But I would say it needs at least 3 bouillon cubes. Possibly double the pepper, salt, garlic, saffron. Possibly take down the lemon to 3 TB I will try these changes next time. I give it 3 stars because the portion size of water, carrots, potatoes and chicken are balanced pretty good. Although I would modify the instructions on the potato size. I used 3 small potatoes not sure what size potato to use. The instructions on how to cook are pretty good. Although didn't say when you should de-bone the chicken. I cooked in bone the entire time hoping it would add more flavor.

Stewdebaker 4y agoIt was fine but not a hit with my family.
birdchik 5y agoVery good soup...i didn't have carrots, so i added a sweet potato, corn on the cob and some green onions at the end...thank you, Jersey :)
Jesca91 5y agoVery tasty! I doubled everything since I used 12 chicken thighs. I still put 1/2 cup of lemon juice instead of doubling it and I added cabbage. Next time I'll omit cabbage & add corn on cob. I'm not much of a soup cook but this came out great!
