- 4 carrots
- 4 stocks of celery
- half of a large onion
- 5 cloves of garlic
- Fresh thyme
- Fresh Italian flat leaf parsley
- 2 tablespoons of butter
- 2 tablespoons of olive oil
- 3 russet potatoes (or other potatoes)
- 2- 32 ounce chicken broth
- 1 pound of boneless, skinless chicken breasts
- salt and pepper (to taste)
- Noodles (egg noodles, bow ties…) *optional
- Soup Pot (My new Stockpots that I love!)

How to make chicken soup
- Wash and chop the vegetables (I use a vegetable chopper like this).
- Wash, peel, and chop the potatoes. (Put them in a bowl of cold water. Until the recipe calls for them to be added.).
- Peel and mince the garlic.
- Finely chop the fresh parsley. (Reserve until needed).
- Saute the carrots, celery, onion. Add in the minced garlic and saute a few minutes longer.
- Add the two boxes of chicken broth into the stock pot with the sauteed vegetables.
- Next, add the prepared potatoes (drained) and uncooked chicken breasts to the stock pot.
- Add half the parsley into the soup. Along with several sprigs of the fresh thyme (You may string them together. I don’t I just pick out the twigs after cooking).
- Cook until the chicken is done. With the stove on simmer. Pull out the chicken and cut it up into bite-sized pieces. Return the cut chicken to the soup pot.
- If you want noodles with the chicken soup cook 2 cups of noodles in a separate pot of water according to the directions (al dente). Drain and rinse them, and spoon the noodles into the bowl. Ladel the soup into the bowl over the noodles.
Cook your chicken soup with or without noodles!
Half of my family likes noodles in the soup, the other half without. Either way, enjoy this homemade chicken soup. Serve it with crackers, bread, or rolls. *(health benefits of chicken broth…)
