Homemade Chicken Soup

When my siblings, cousins, and I were young, our Nan had a standard chicken soup she would sometimes make. If one of us was sick and wanted her to make a soup, she would cater it to our particular likes. Did you have someone who would do the same for you?

While chicken soup is good on a cold winter day, it is also satisfying any time you’re not feeling well or when you need comfort food. Homemade is best, especially when made with homemade chicken stock. I do not have measurements for this particular recipe.


Chicken or vegetable stock

Chicken, cooked and cut into bite size pieces

Diced potatoes

Diced carrot

Parsley, chopped fresh

Garlic, chopped fine

  1. Pour the stock into a pot and add the chicken and vegetables.
  2. Add the garlic.
  3. Cook on high until boiling, then lower to medium heat and continue cooking until carrots and potatoes are tender.
  4. Add the parsley five minutes before done.
  5. Remove from heat.


  • Add chopped celery and onion during step one.
  • Add pasta in time for it to cook thoroughly.
