Whole Chicken Part 3: Homemade chicken soup

This is part 3 of my 4 part series on how to use a whole chicken.

Part 1 will discuss how to cook the whole chicken in the crock pot.

Part 2 will discuss how to make homemade chicken broth from the leftover bones and skin.

Part 3 will discuss how to make homemade chicken soup from the chicken broth.

Part 4 will discuss the health benefits of homemade chicken broth.

Homemade Chicken Soup:

Step 1: Chop 1 onion and 2 cloves of garlic.

Step 2: In a large pot, saute the onion and garlic in melted butter and olive oil (the smell is wonderful!)

Step 3: Add the homemade chicken broth and anything else you would like: brown rice, lentils, vegetables, pasta, etc.  I like to use chopped up carrots and brown rice.  (I used about 2 carrots and 1 cup of brown rice)

Step 4: Season with your favorite seasonings: salt, pepper, thyme, paprika, cayenne pepper, etc and simmer for an hour.  Add in chicken and season to taste.

Step 5: Serve and enjoy or freeze for later.  This chicken soup is really good for you and also a great meal to have on a fall or winter day.  Freezing some for a sick day would be a great idea as well.

I hope you enjoy, and join me for part 4 where I will discuss the health benefits of homemade chicken broth.

Blessings,

Amber
