Chicken Soup

Home / Chicken / Chicken Soup


I think March is showing us his teeth. It is freaking cold outside and the temperature keeps falling. I was hoping that the weather would start getting warmer, but I guess he doesn’t feel like it!
Anyway, I ate this soup many years ago, during my first trip to the US. I was visiting Washington DC during Christmas time and I got either flu or a heavy cold. I was staying with friends and that girl Rebecca made that soup for me. It was everything my body wanted. After three or four days the flu was gone and I was ready to celebrate New Year’s Eve. Of course I was 20 years younger back then. So, along with my beautiful and painful memories from Washington, I carried in my luggage this soup as well.


Ever since I made this soup several times and everyone loved it. At this point I will tell you a very funny story. When I first met my husband and started dating, one day he felt a little under the weather. He was living alone and I had a spare key, so I decided to surprise him with this soup.
Indeed, I went to his house while he was at work, made the soup and waited for him. He was very happy to see me and he was even happier when he saw the soup. He ate a bowl and then I left, so as for him to rest.
After a few months when we started living together, he confided in me that when I left, he ate the whole pot. He didn’t want to do it in front of me, so as not to think bad for him lol. He said to me that this was the best soup he had ever had.
So, here is the recipe for the soup. I made it in the past, but back then my photographic skills were not as good as they are today. That’s why I am reposting it!



Chicken Soup
1 lt chicken broth
1/2 lt water
2 chicken breasts skin on
2 bay leaves
3 tbsp parsley
1 1/2 tsp dried thyme
5 peppercorns
1 cup celery chopped
1 large onion
2 carrots
1/2 bag rice noodles or any other noodles

Chicken soup preparation



We empty broth in the pot we add the chicken and the water.
We bring to boil and skim off the yuck that comes to top.
We put in the spices and the vegetables.
We lower the fire and cover until the chicken and the vegetables are soft.
We take out the chicken and remove the bones and skin and cut it in small pieces.

In the meantime we have already prepared the noodles and throw them in along with the chicken. If you like your soup more thick you can thicken it with corn flour.
It is then ready to be eaten. If it is too much you can always put it in the fridge and eat it another day after you heat it.
