Chicken Soup

Homemade chicken soup

Ahh, the winter season, cold weather and, well, colds. Last year I got sick with the flu and my best friend made me a pot of this chicken soup and brought it over. It was so good I asked her for the recipe. Now I make this whenever somebody in our house gets the sniffles.


1 whole chicken

2 cups cooked pasta

1 onion

4 celery stalks

4 carrots

4 cloves garlic

2 chicken bouillon cubes or packets

1. Place the chicken in a large stock pot and cover with water.
2. Slice the carrots and celery in half and add to the pot.
3. Quarter the onion and chop the garlic and add them to the pot.

4. Cook over medium-high heat for 1-2 hours or until the chicken falls off the bones.
5. Remove the chicken to a baking sheet and pull the meat from the bones.
6. Use a hand-held strainer to remove the vegetables from the pot. Chop the celery, onion, and carrots into small pieces.

7. Stir the bouillon into the pot and add salt and pepper to taste.
8. Return the chicken and vegetables to the pot.
9. Stir in the cooked pasta and heat through.

There you go! This recipe makes enough soup to feed my family of four for a few days, and it tastes great as leftovers. Make it yourself as a comfort food when you or a family member are sick, or just make it on a cold night! Feel free to pin or share this recipe. If you have any great soup recipes of your own, let me know in the comments. See the rest of the recipe ideas from Try a New Recipe Tuesday here:

  1. This sounds wonderful. The only chicken soup recipe I have is for the crock pot. I have never made homemade chicken soup on the stove. I can’t wait to try this.
    thanks for stopping by Kids and a Mom in the Kitchen. I hope to see you back again this week. MY linky goes live every Friday.
