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.

    Hi pizzaqueen!
    The secret is just to let it cook slowly for as long as possible, Even 2-3 hours. that way you won't have to add any cubes or broth or anything.Use absolutely EVERYTHING from the chicken except the cackle. The more you use, the tastier it will be. Also try adding Ginger.
    Lor! here's my 5. Forget the eggs

    Hi PizzaQueen. It was nice of you to pop by the recipe I posted for Chicken Soup From My Mother-in-law. I use a regular boiler/fryer chicken and as mentioned in the recipe, I use boullion cubes or OXO chicken flavouring in the packets. They always seem to do the trick. If you would rather use chicken broth in the can, then by all means feel free. It's all up to the individual preparing the soup. I hope you enjoy the results.

    When i make chicken noodle soup, I have to add chicken broth to my soup to make it taste like chicken. I would like to know what kind of chicken you use. I think the way chicken are raise today you can't get the whole chicken flavor from just using chicken and not use chicken broth from a can.

    Growing up in Michigan, my English family was influenced by their Polish/Ukrainian neighbors. I love this! It just says comfort/family/goodness to me.
