Need a little comfort that only "Mom" can provide? Well, you're sure to feel and taste lots of TLC in each spoonful of our Test Kitchen's classic soothing Mom's Chicken Soup.

What You'll Need:
  • 1 (3- to 4-pound) chicken, cut into quarters
  • 4 quarts water
  • 3 carrots, cut into chunks
  • 3 celery stalks, cut into chunks
  • 2 onions, cut into chunks
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • Chicken base or bouillon cubes to taste, optional (see Notes)
What To Do:
  1. Rinse chicken under cold running water. In a soup pot over medium-high heat, place all ingredients except chicken base; bring to a boil.
     
  2. Reduce heat to low and simmer abour 1-1/2 hours, or until chicken meat falls off the bones. Cool slightly, then separate chicken from bones, discarding bones. Return chicken pieces to soup. Add chicken base, if desired, and stir until completely dissolved. 

 

Notes
  • If you decide to intensify the flavor of your soup with chicken base, begin with 1 or tablespoons. If you are using chicken bouillon cubes, you can use 2 to 3. 
     
  • There are so many great things we can do with chicken soup; try our Chicken and Dumplings for another delicious option -- Mmmm!
