Granny's Homemade Soup

Recipe by Chef Mommie
READY IN: 1hr 10mins
SERVES: 8-10




  • Wash chicken.
  • Put in large pot and cover above chicken with hot water about 1 inch.
  • Open tomatoes and drain juice into pot.
  • Crush tomatoes with hands and add to pot.
  • Wash celery and carrots, then slice and add to pot.
  • Bring to a boil and then cover and lower temp to a low boil and cook 1 hour.
  • Watch to make sure liquid doesn't boil out. If it gets low add a little more water.
  • Remove chicken, set aside and let cool.
  • Add potatoes and cook 30 more minutes.
  • After potatoes are done, take 3 or 4 chunks and smash them on the side of the pan. This will help to thicken the soup.
  • Add onion, tomato SOUP (or sauce), corn and butter beans and cook about 10 minutes.
  • Pull the chicken off the bone and add to pot.
  • Salt and Pepper to taste now or in your own bowl. I personally think salt is a must in this soup.
  • Stir and serve.
  • Delicious!
