- 1/4 head of cabbage or 1 head of endive, washed, steamed and chopped to small chunk sized pieces shopping list
- 2 hard boiled eggs, chopped shopping list
- Note: If you don't like the addition of chopped hard boiled eggs in your soup, my Mother-in-law and I have added 4 eggs in the shell(washed) to the soup and have hard boiled them that way. Then whoever wants hard boiled eggs can have one ;) shopping list
- 2 lbs. chicken, cut up shopping list
- 1 large onion, coarsely chopped shopping list
- about 5 or 6 tops of celery with leaves shopping list
- 1 chicken boullion cube or packet of OXO shopping list
- Note: If you want to use more cubes or packets or chicken broth then by all means, feel free. shopping list
- 2 carrots, chopped shopping list
- 2 celery ribs, chopped shopping list
- 1-1/2 cups egg noodles or your favourite pasta or Spätzle. shopping list
How to make it
- Place chicken, onion, celery leaves in a pot.
- Cover with cold water and bring to a rolling boil.
- Reduce heat and simmer until chicken is very tender and falls from the bones. (1-1/2 hours.)
- Remove chicken, celery leaves and onion.
- Discard celery leaves.
- Remove chicken from bones and chop chicken into bite sized pieces.
- Note: You can use boneless chicken but I find with the bone in it adds more flavour to the soup. It's also old world cooking.
- Reserve this delicious broth.
- Add celery and carrots to the broth.
- Cook until tender (10 minutes)
- Add escarole, noodles or spätzle, eggs, and chicken.
- Bring to a low boil.
- Simmer until noodles are cooked.
- Serve hot with a loaf of crusty bread.
- Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese on top and you'll see how delicious this soup is.
