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.
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.
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.
