I created this by adding "my secret ingredient" to my grandmother's recipe. you will be shocked at how hearty it is! My children and their friends never left a drop in the pot, even into adulthood

How To Make jeanne's chicken soup

  • 1
    Clean the fat from between the skin and flesh, and leave chicken whole. Add with all other ingredients to pot except rice and sprouts, bring to low boil, and simmer without stirring for about 1-1/2 hours. Remove chicken and cool enough to pull apart. This is a good time to skim any fat. I use all the meat EXCEPT the breast, which I save for sandwiches. Put the chicken meat back into pot, bring to gentle boil, and add rice and brussels sprouts, simmer for 20 minutes til rice is cooked

    You can remove the sprouts, and the kids won't know, if they do not care for them. Otherwise you can slice them into pieces in the soup. A real difference from adding other greens, the flavor is incredible!
