Cherri’s Chicken Soup Recipe
This really isn’t anything special. It’s a classic chicken soup recipe that I grew up on and loved whenever my mom made it. My mom, Cheri, usually made it with homemade noodles she learned to make from her mother. I will eventually put the recipe for the homemade noodles here, but it’s not something I make often as it is a little time consuming.
You can use this recipe to create a delicious chicken stock as well, just strain the vegetables and chicken and skim the fat for a delicious homemade chicken stock.

Cherri via Dish Ditty
- 3lb Chicken (*See Note)
- 1 cup White Wine (optional)
- 10 Black Peppercorns
- 2-4 Stalks of celery (cut in pieces)
- 2 Whole carrots (cut in pieces)
- 1 Medium Onion (peeled & cut in half - or cut into pieces)
- 2 Bay Leaf
- 1/2 cup Parsley
Use any parts available but try to include backs, necks and gizzards. I prefer a whole cut up chicken. You can choose to remove the skins, but I find that at least one or two skins will enhance the flavor. Fresh turkey parts are also excellent for additional flavor.

|In large pot, cover chicken pieces with water. Add remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil then lower heat to a simmer and cook for 1.5 hours. |
|Depending on how much skin you used, there maybe a layer of fat. Skim the fat off of the soup. There are several ways to do this. See the notes for links. |
|Serve over home made noodles or cooked egg noodles. |
