How to Make Chicken Soup (Recipes Kids Should Know Before Leaving Home)
Recently I shared my secrets for how to roast a chicken. A great follow-up recipe is Chicken Soup as it is a good way to use up leftover chicken. Plus who doesn’t love chicken soup? You’ll be able to keep your friends and family happy for years making them chicken soup! Like so many of the recipes that we’ve been working on as part of our Recipes Kids Should Know Before Leaving Home series, today’s chicken soup recipe is simple but also very flexible.
There are many ways to make chicken soup, from simmering leftover chicken bones to cooking chicken pieces bone-in and more. Instead we are giving you a base recipe for basic chicken soup that uses already-cooked chicken and chicken broth you can buy at the store. It’s easy, still homemade and tastes wonderful! Once you get this recipe down, you can start to experiment with other techniques as well as adding other ingredients, like herbs/spices, other types of vegetables or noodles or rice.
Today’s basic chicken soup recipe, however, is delicious on its own and will always be a great go-to recipe for a quick dinner.
