The Best Chicken Soup in the Universe

This is my world famous chicken soup recipe. The secret is in the sweet potato and the cook time. I freeze the leftover liquid and then either use it as chicken stock or use it as a base to start my next chicken soup (yum!). I let this cook all day long because we like it dark, but it's all a matter of personal preference. (keep the cook time in mind for the salt amount--the more cook time, the less salt!) You can vary the vegetables but don't ever leave out the sweet potato!

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Peel all vegetables.
  2. Place dill, parsley, bay leaves, chicken pieces, and any vegetable you don't like eating in your bowl into a food net.
  3. Add net and all vegetables into a large pot (I use a 10 oz). Cover with water.
  4. Bring to a boil, let boil for about 20-40 minutes. Lower flame and simmer for 5-10 hours (or longer!).
  5. Enjoy! Serve with croutons and/or peeled white radish slices.
