Recipe: Whole Chicken Broth Chicken Soup

  • 1 chicken stock (about 2 to 2.5 kilograms)
  • 1 bunch of parsley soup greens
  • 1 onion
  • 1 to 2 bay leaves
  • 3 medium carrots
  • Noodle soup or rice
  • Salt pepper
  • optional frozen peas, broccoli or asparagus
  1. Remove any attached casings from the chicken. This works best with tweezers. Clean the chicken afterwards.
  2. Pour cold, salted water into a large pot and bring to a boil. How much water you need depends on the size of the chicken and your pot. The chicken should be at least completely covered with water in the pot.
  3. Then put the chicken stock and needles into the boiling water. Close the lid of the pot and turn off the heat. Cover and simmer the chicken over medium-high heat for 2 to 2.5 hours.
  4. While the soup is simmering, wash and chop the soup vegetables. After boiling, remove the chicken from the soup and let it cool slightly. Tip: The meat is done when pulled from the bone in the thigh.
  5. Now add the vegetables to the broth and continue to simmer until the vegetables are cooked.
  6. If you want, you can cook 200 grams of thin soup noodles in the soup. Rice also tastes good with chicken broth.
  7. Meanwhile, peel the chicken and separate the meat from the bones. Cut the skin and flesh into bite-sized pieces and return to the soup. Serve the chicken soup with washed and chopped parsley.

What meat is suitable for a chicken soup?

The base of the chicken soup is a fresh chicken broth. Preferably this comes from the farmer or butcher so you know where it came from and how it was fed. This ensures that the meat is of good quality. Chickens from the supermarket are often not as tasty and often have less meat.

Alternatively, you can use chicken drumsticks or chicken pieces to cook the broth.

Cook the chicken with frozen soup

If you don’t have fresh chicken on hand, you can also use frozen soup chicken. Here, however, the cooking time is extended to an hour. You can also tell if the chicken is ready once the meat separates from the bone.

Pressure cooker chicken soup

If you have a pressure cooker, you can also use it to make chicken soup. Pour a chicken soup, chopped soup greens with water and a little salt into the pot. Close the lid and let everything boil until there is steam or pressure in the cooker. Now reduce the temperature a little and let everything simmer for another 30 minutes. Then remove the pot from the stove. After about 30 minutes the chicken will be ready.
