There's nothing more gratifying than a bowl of chicken soup. This recipe comes from Martha's latest book "One Pot: 120+ Easy Meals from Your Skillet, Slow Cooker, Stockpot, and More."



Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • In a stockpot, combine chicken, broth, the water, and 1 teaspoon salt. Bring to a boil, skimming off foam from surface with a large spoon. Reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer 5 minutes, skimming frequently. Add onions, garlic, carrots, celery, and parsley. Simmer, partially covered, until chicken is cooked through, about 25 minutes.

  • Remove parsley and chicken, discarding back, neck, and parsley. Let cool, then tear meat into bite-size pieces. Skim fat.

  • Return broth to a boil and add pasta; simmer 5 minutes. Stir in 3 cups chicken (reserve remaining chicken for another use).

  • Season soup with salt and pepper. Garnish with chopped parsley before serving.

No, offense, but why on earth would you add boxed chicken stock when making fresh stock? Also, I was taught when making white stock, (from raw protein) only to simmer. Boiling makes any stock cloudy. The best way to get the maximum flavor into your stock is to roast the protein before hand. (making a brown stock instead of a white stock) You won't need the boxed stuff if you do. In this case, buy an organic chicken while you're at it. They have a stronger flavor & are better for you.
