Helen’s Chicken Soup

Far be it from me to try and turn this blog into a recipe site but by sheer coincidence Kerry cooked a chicken yesterday so today we are going to make some chicken soup using my mother’s recipe.

Like so many times in the past, I gave my mom a call and she rattles the recipe off from the top of her head, this time as she and my dad are out “tootling” around Tuckerton.

  • Start by pulling off any extra meat from the Chicken Carcass to be used in the finished soup. (If you have too much for the soup, make chicken salad!)
  • Put the Chicken Carcass in a pot and cover it with water.
  • Add one Onion cut in half (not chopped or diced)
  • Add ample amount of cut Celery and Carrots
  • Add one Garlic Clove
  • Add fresh Parsley
  • Add Kosher Salt to taste
  • Add Pepper to taste
  • Simmer for one hour
  • Strain contents of pot through strainer and place broth in separate bowl and refridgerate
  • Wait until fat solidifies on top of broth
  • Remove fat and reintroduce contents
  • Prepare pasta or rice separately and heat soup.
  • Add pasta or rice to soup.

Serve and enjoy….

    I always make soup during the holidays with the turkey carcass…….I put rice or barley in with it, too. Sometimes I add frozen peas. My kids/grandkids love it!!! Nothing like homemade soups!!!
