Hearty Chicken Soup

Jack's Hearty Chicken Soup

Chicken soup has long been a comfort food.

Add your family's favorite vegetables; potatoes, noodles or rice; and simmer.
Cut one chicken and place in dutch oven or large soup pot.
Cover with water and boil with your favorite seasonings until chicken is tender.
(salt, pepper, oregano, garlic)

For rich flavor, use fresh thyme and rosemary.

While chicken is boiling (about 1 hour), cut, peel, dice, chop your favorite vegetables.

For nutrition, try chopped turnips.

Skin and debone the chicken, cutting into bite size pieces.

Place back into soup pot, cover with stock from boiling, and add vegetables.

If more stock is desired, add store-bought or previously-frozen broth.

Because turnips are low in calories and carbohydrates,
they make a great starch substitute. Otherwise, add rice or noodles.
Enjoy! Be sure to freeze your left overs for quick sides and meals on chilly days!
