Easy Chicken Soup


Seems like everyone in my house has come down with a cold.
What better than a bowl of moms chicken soup!
Everyone loves it 
and
it's pretty quick and easy too.







Chicken Soup:

1-6 pound roasting chicken (cook as directed)
6 cans Swanson's Chicken Stock 
1 cup water
4 large stalks of celery-chopped
1 cup baby carrots-chopped
1 medium onion-chopped
3/4 cup frozen petite peas
1/2 cup fresh parsley-snipped with kitchen scissors
Kosher salt
Course ground pepper

Egg noodles or rice

Roast chicken as directed. While chicken is roasting add chicken stock 
and rest of ingredients to stock pot and bring to boil. Once soup reaches a boil, simmer
until vegetables reach desired firmness.
When chicken is cooked, dice desired amount and add to stock.
Serve with egg noodles or rice.
I serve these on the side and everyone adds what they'd like to their dish.

Perfect for a winter day.

Enjoy!

Your chicken soup sounds wonderful, I'm sure it makes everybody feel better once they eat it. I feel like I'm coming down with a cold, so I had homemade chicken soup for lunch. I will try your recipe next time!

Hi Lynn, there's nothing quite like a hot bowl of homemade chicken soup. That is one of my favorites to make. I usually make homemade noodles, but it's yummy either way. One thing that my mom always did when we had homemade chicken soup was to place a boiled egg sliced in half. Sounds funky, but it is real yummy. I always put a dab of butter (Yes I know, extra fat) on my bowl of soup and then plae the egg. It's really good! YUM, I think I might need to make some this week! lol! Hope your family is doing better. Colds are no fun. My hubby has had two pretty bad ones. So far I've lucked out.
Hugs,
Jann
