There is nothing quite like chicken soup. I have been feeling under-weather and determined to feel better as my birthday is later this week and I love a good celebration! Now this is not how I used to cook chicken soup, but after having dinner in the fall at my friend Caroline’s place, this is now how I cook chicken soup. I was a little surprised when I saw her put the entire chicken in a pot to make her chicken soup.  But  this is one of the things I love about having dinner at friends places,  everyone has their own styles and tricks.

This way of cooking chicken soup is so delicious and simple.

In a large Stock pot put all of the ingredients in and add enough water to just cover the chicken. Place on stove, on low to medium heat and cook covered with a lid for 1 hour to 1 1/2 hours.

The chicken will break away from the bone. Ladle the veggies and broth into a bowl and pieces of chicken. Ready to eat!
