This soup recipe has been in my family for well over 100 years. My mother who is now 94 yrs old has made this for me as long as I can remember. This recipe is straight from Hungary. And when ever my little girl gets sick she looks at me with her big blues and asks me to please make her some "Healing" soup.She always feels better after eating it and it truely does have healing power.This soup is absolutely delish. Once you make it...you'll see. Please enjoy our family's recipe...I know we do.
Set up a large pot of water to boil chicken in once it's cut up. I do not use the wings. Add chicken to water and bring to a rapid boil for about a good 30 mins. Skim the foam off of the top of the soup broth and discard. Keep doing this til the chicken stops produceing the foam.
Once the foam is gone, add the parsnip greens,garlic,paprika,onion,salt and pepper to taste. Bring down to a slow boil for about 1 1/2 hours.
Once the onion starts getting soft, add the carrots, parsnips and celery and continue to slow boil until veggies start to get soft, then add the potatoes, this is when I remove the chicken from the soup and debone and skin the meat. You can add all the meat back to the soup when the potatoes are done and serve over large noodles or the small thin soup noodles, which ever you prefer. *NEVER ADD NOODLES TO SOUP TO COOK* Please boil them in a different pot. Keep noodles seperate in a bowl. Enjoy!!
