Chicken Soup, Plain Ol' 30-Dec-2017

This is just plain, old, chicken soup from scratch


  • 2 chicken breasts, cubed
  • 2 carrots, quartered
  • 2 celery stalks, halved
  • 1 onion, quartered
  • 1 package Knorr chicken soup start
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • bay leaf
  • water to cover


  1. Put all ingredients into a pot with water to cover by about an inch
  2. Bring water to boil, cover, and set to simmer for maybe an hour
  3. Using a large collandar, strain the broth into a large pot
  4. Chop the vegetables and return to the pot
  5. Salt and pepper to taste
  6. Warm the soup ingredients through and serve


This ↑ is what I did the last time I made this.


  • miso and/or soy/tahini to make a base for ramen (miso is not GF)
  • noodles, rice, potatoes, etc., to give the soup some body, but it’s pretty good on its own, too (use GF pasta)
  • could use skin-on thighs for more flavor, but you have to skim the fat, too
  • white wine
  • tinned broth
  • bouillon
