The homemade chicken soup
as comfy as it is
Homemade chicken soup recipe
½ chicken (
or two back quarters)
1 or 2 boiled
handful of boiled chickpeas)
(some chopped bacon or Iberic ham)
1 Deep saucepan
or a pot with a lid
- Peel the
potatoes and the carrots, rinse them and reserve.
- Cut the
eggs and the ham or bacon into small squares and leave them aside.
- Place the
chicken at the bottom of the pot.
- Add the water
to fill three quarters of the pot. We well need to be watching for this water not to evaporate completely. So, we may be having to add some more during the boiling time.
- Add some
salt and let it boil for about 10-15 minutes.
- Add the vegetables,
also the salt, and leave the lid ajar.
- Lower the
heat down to almost minimum. The slower the better. No need to rush.
- Half-cover the pot with a lid
- Give it a look once in a while to make sure it does not run out of water.
- Then, when ready, use
the colander to clear the broth. Pass it to another pot, an individual bowl or a tureen.
- Take the chicken out of the broth and crumble it to be added to the broth.
Now we can:
some pasta for soup or noodles (面条), maybe a little bit of plain rice and let it boil until it is done, then add the eggs and
just add the eggs and the ham
