Bryan's Israeli Chicken Soup
- Ready In:
- 4hrs 25mins
- Take out the parts of the chicken that you don't want to eat, remove the skin, but do not debone.
- In the pot, Cover the bird with water.
- Boil the birdie on medium high heat.
- When the chicken starts turning white, add the dill with 1/4 cup of salt and some pepper.
- While the birdie boils, wash and chop your veggies.
- Don't cut the dill, as this will make it very hard to remove later.
- When you've gotten this far, take the bird out of the pot and bring th heat down to a mere simmer for the time being.
- Remove all the chicken meat from the bones, but make sure to keep the bones.
- Throw the meat and bones together into the pot (except maybe small bones that you would miss when removing the bones from the soup).
- Throw the potatoes in first, add all the veggies, then add the dill on top of everything else.
- Bring everything to a boil and cook the soup for about an hour.
- Make sure it dosn't boil too hard, as this makes the veggies taste bitter.
- After an hour, take out the chicken bones and skim out the dill weed--this is the hardest part!
- Boil the soup some more, until the potatoes and other veggies are soft and squashy and the chicken is softened.
- Add salt and pepper to your own taste.
- Let it all stand for about fifteen minutes, so the elements have time to steep without boiling.

<p>I am not a very interesting person. I like to cook, I like to eat, and I love my husband Rick and my son Hugh. Thats pretty much it when it comes to me, that and an obsession for cats, especially our 2, Bunny & Bindy Sue. We live in Lake Dallas, TX, and have been married since August 16th, 2003. Hugh was born October 19th, 2009. Rick and I met on the internet in September 2001, and when we were married I moved from NJ where I grew up, to the big, scary, strange city of Dallas. There are things I like about Dallas and things I don't. I am definitely homesick for some real NY style pizza.</p>
