Easy chicken soup recipe


Idealy you want to have a good amount of chicken stock already but if you do not then just get an chicken carcass and soak it in water. You can also use some cooked chicken breasts but you will need to shred them a bit to help release the hidden flavours.

So, simmer your carcass (or whatever you're using) for about an hour with slat and pepper. (Skip this step if yopu already have some chicken stock).

Chop up the vegetables and the garlic and onions. Find a big frying pan and fry the onions and garlic for about 3 minutesand then add the other vegetable and fry gently for another couple of minutes.

Filter the water that the chicken has been in and pour into a saucepan. You can also pick of any bits of edible chicken if you like.

Add the slightly fried vegetable and onion to the saucepan. and bring to the boil. Let it simmer gently for about 45 - 60 minutes.

Serve with warm bread or soup noodles. Garnish with fresh coriander.

It really is that easy. If you feeel the need to add salt and pepper feel free and of course any other ingredients that need using up! Thats what a soup is for right!!
