Chicken soup

Sandy Mika


I make the soup and I make a pan of egg noodles and a pan of white rice, that way everybody has it with whichever they choose.I do not put my noodles or rice in the soup, I keep them on the side and just add to the bowl. I have a big old stock pot and I put in however much chicken fits, so I really can't say exactly how much that is. 8]

How to Make Chicken soup


  1. I clean my gizzards and put them in a pressure cooker and put enough water to cover them. I cook for about 1 hour, then add them and the water they cooked in to the pot you are going to cook the soup in.
  2. add chicken pieces and enough water to cover the chicken in your soup pot.
  3. add onions and garlic and simmer until chicken is just about done, remove chicken from pot with a slotted spoon.
    (skim gunk from soup as it cooks)
  4. add everything else to pot and simmer while you remove the bones and skin from chicken. Add chicken back to pot and heat through . Serve over rice or noodles. and lots of buttered saltines on the side.
    I put a lot of chicken because otherwise they pick all the meat out and I'm left with vegtable soup.
    (you can add peas or green beans, or any other vegtables you like)
