For Sinner... and not only...
This is what we call... the "sick man soup". I've made this soup to many americans while they had a cold and they said... it cured them Smile)
This also is the soup we make for babies go on more solid food... we blend and feed the baby with the bottle. It is very yummy and healthy.

1 chicken... in a pot with enough water to cover, boil 1 hour on its own... just plain water.

Remove chicken in a bowl...
Strain the liquid trough a paper towel. Clean the pot and place liquid back in the pot and on the stove again.

Vegetables: 3 garlic cloves, 2 celery stalks, 1/2 parsnip, 3-4 carrots, 3 potatoes, 1 bunch of green onions or 1 medium white onion, and 3-4 springs of parsley.
Leave out the potatoes to boil last.

Add the vegetables cut in large pieces... boil for about 30 minutes at medium heat and covered.
Then add the chicken without skin and bones plus potatoes cut in big chunks.
Add 1 teaspoon chicken bullion, salt and pepper to taste.
Boil until potatoes are done about 30 minutes.

Remove from heat and dress with chopped parsley and/or chopped green onion.

Also could add separately boiled small pasta.

Thanks MamaC for posting the recipe.

I can see from the ingredients that I will like this soup very very much. I just ask hubby whether he will eat this soup if I make it and he said 'yes' Smile . He does not like my chinese soups island

Sinner, my husband is American 100%... he will not eat any other soup but mine.

Ask him if he want to eat at the restaurant (localy), he will always say... let's go home and eat Smile)
Exceptions are 2 places... a Thai restaurant "Siam" and a all you can eat buffet, just because, and is only the reason, they have freshly grilled steak.

But this soup and my sour soups loves them to death.
I will post more of my soups and I am sure your DH will eat them.
My husband's #1 favorite is Meat Ball Soup.

MamaC,

Thank you for sharing your soup recipe. I cooked it for lunch. It was most welcome yesterday because the cold southerly was blowing and the sun was on strike. Hubby ate it with some french stick. Smile

If hubby ate... then I give three cheers :lol: hip hip huray... hip hip huray... hip hip huray :lol:
Did he liked the taste?

Looks great, I see the broth is nice and clear.
I see you don't have any chopped parsley in it... taste better with... but is OK if you don't like parsley.

MamaC

yes hubby did like the soup.
We both don't like parsley, so I only use it for garnishing and then remove. I used chicken drumstick. The soup was flavoursome enough for me to omit the chicken bullion as well. Smile

Thanks for sharing this recipe, MamaC. I am very tempted to try making this cos it sounds quite straight forward. But can I know roughly how many portions your recipe make? I am thinking of using just drumsticks/ thigh and would like to adjust the rest of the ingredients accordingly.

I used a 5 l pot to have enough space in the pot to boil. Get about 6 large servings.
You need enough liquid to cover the meat and simmer on medium for 1 hour to be able to take the meat out of the bone. Then you add water as much as you want. Depend how juicy you want to be.
Could be frozen without the potatoes. They tend to crumble.

Can use only two whole legs instead of a whole chicken, add less liquid... and cut in half the vegetable quantity.
