  1. Cover chicken with water in large kettle. Cook slowly until tender(about 60-90 minutes). Add salt when water starts to boil.

  4. Debone chicken and cut meat into bite-sized pieces. Set aside.
  5. Add corn (frozen works fine)to broth and bring to a boil.
  6. Add celery and seasonings.
  7. Cook for 5 minutes.
  8. Add chicken and eggs.
  9. Cover and cook gently for 5 minutes.
  10. NOTE: If you like noodles in your soup (I do)add them with the celery and seasonings.
