My Grandma Recipe For An Easy Chicken Soup From Scratch

In several of my websites, I have featured some of my Moms more popular recipes. Today site, I feature my Grandma's Delicious Chicken Soup Recipe'.


Basically, chicken soup is a soup made by bringing to a boil and then simmering chicken (parts or whole and/or bones) in water, with various vegetables and flavorings. The results in the right hands are most delicious. The classic chicken soup consists of a clear broth with small pieces of chicken or vegetables, or with noodles or dumplings, or grains such as rice. Chicken soup has also acquired the reputation of a folk remedy for colds and flu, and in many countries is considered a typical comfort food.

  • Can of evaporated milk.
  • 1-2 Tablespoons Butter
  • Garlic
  • 4 medium Potatoes
  • Red Sweet pepper
  • Frozen Green peas
  • Cabbage
  • Broccoli
  • Tomatoes
  • Liver of the chicken cooked and mashed
  • 2 sweet potatoes chopped
  • Lima beans
  • butter beans
  • green beans
  • mushroom pieces
  • Whole kernel corn sweet corn
  • PARSLEY



How To Begin Preparing Your Easy Chicken Soup From Scratch?

  • Rinse chicken thoroughly
  • Place In a large stock pot
  • Cover chicken with water
  • Add 6 bouillon cubes to water
  • Begin heating over medium heat
  • Finely chop sweet onion; add to stock
  • Cut celery sticks into bite-size pieces; add to stock
  • Wash carrots; cut into bite-size pieces; add to stock
  • Pepper stock according to taste preference.
  • Bring Stock to a low boil and cover
  • Cook until chicken is done (about ½ hour) and chicken can be picked from the bone.
  • Remove chicken from stock
  • Let cool enough to skin chicken and to pick meat from the bone. (Mama Ruby only uses about ½ of the meat and freezes the rest to save time on her next batch of soup or whatever.)


Procedure and options for chicken stock:

  • Stock can be split to use for future soups; it freezes well.
  • Water can be added to the stock to make it less rich or more diluted.
  • You can cool the stock, and then skim excess fat off. This does not significantly hinder the flavor but does reduce fat.
  • Measure enough stock to easily cook egg noodles.
  • Add any optional ingredients you want, replace meat and simmer together.
  • Bring to boil; add egg noodles and cook until done (10 to 12 minutes).
  • Serve in bowls with a garnish of choice.


Notes:

  • Carrots: wash carrots "do not peel", cut carrots into bite-size pieces and add to stock on the stove. Leaving the peel on will keep the carrots from getting mushy.
  • Potatoes, instead of noodles: COOKED CUBED POTATOES CAN BE ADDED AFTER THE SOUP IS COOKED. If you cook potatoes with soup, save them for last as to not overly gel the soup.
  • Tomatoes: chopped, add right before noodles and do NOT over do.
  • Garlic: I love to add a little garlic to my stock at the beginning, and do NOT over do.
  • Red Sweet peppers: chop into small bite size pieces, add right before noodles and do NOT over do.
  • Vegetables and Beans; Most of the vegetables do great frozen as from the grocery store and added towards the last with the noodles.
  • Parsley - Rinse parsley in cold water to remove any sand/dirt remains; Cut off stalks so that only tops remain; Chop parsley; Add parsley to stock - some of this can be saved and used as a garnish when serving soup
  • Garnishes - croutons; shredded Parmesan cheese - spring onion - chopped; fresh parsley
