Classic Chicken Soup

Ingredients

Directions

Share

This delicious classic chicken soup is made using a whole chicken that is cooked in the water to create an excellent broth. The best chicken to use is organic chicken as it is packed with flavour. If you cut the whole chicken into pieces this makes it a speedier process that ensures a good taste and the bonus is that the excess meat can be used to make a meal for another day.

Tips! If you double the quantities of water and vegetables you will make enough soup to last a couple of days and more ingredients can be added to ‘ring the changes’.

* Everyone loves noodles, so add these, some broken lengths of spaghetti or pasta shapes to the soup and gently simmer for 8- 12 minutes depending on your chosen pasta.

* Create a really delicious flavour by adding some fresh lemongrass or some curry powder.

* Give your chicken soup a real vegetable boost by adding chopped spinach, kale, cubes of potato or butternut squash.

* For fun, pop an egg into the soup to poach.
