Cure a Cold Chicken Soup

“This is a rather rustic chicken soup--it's not that pretty to look at, but it tastes wonderful and is a favorite of mine. I've come up with this recipe--it's not really original--but it's good.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a soup pot place the chicken and cover with cold water about two inches from the top of the chicken.
  2. Bring to a simmer-- skim the white foam off of the top-- this will take about 10 minutes.
  3. When the foam stops coming to the top-- add the carrots, celery, onion, garlic, poultry seasoning, salt peppercorns and ground pepper and bay leaves.
  4. Simmer for about 45 minutes.
  5. Add the remaining ingredients and simmer another 20 minutes or until potatoes are fork tender.
  6. Taste soup and adjust seasonings to your taste.
  7. Remove the chicken pieces to a platter and let cool enough to handle--take the meat off the bones and put the chicken meat back into the soup pot.
  8. Enjoy and your cold will go away sooner.
