Mom's Chicken Soup

serves 8

Cooking Time: 1 hr 45 min

What You'll Need:
1 (3- to 4-pound) chicken, cut into quarters
4 quarts water
3 carrots, cut into chunks
3 celery stalks, cut into chunks
2 onions, cut into chunks
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper 
Chicken base or bouillon cubes to taste, optional (see Notes)

What To Do:
1. Rinse chicken under cold running water. Place all ingredients except chicken base (or bouillon cubes) in a soup pot over medium-high heat; bring to a boil.

2. Reduce heat to low and simmer until chicken meat falls off the bones, about 1-1/2 hours. Cool slightly, then separate chicken from bones, discarding bones. Return chicken pieces to soup. Add chicken base or bouillon cubes and stir until completely dissolved.

Note:
If you decide to intensify the flavor of your soup with chicken base, begin with 1 or tablespoons. If you are using chicken bouillon cubes, you can use 2 to 3.

There are so many great things we can do with chicken soup; try our Chicken and Dumplings for another delicious option -- Mmmm!
