Chicken soup

I’ll admit, this picture does not do the soup justice at all,it sure tastes better than it looks. I like to make this when it’s all winter-y and cold,it worms me up and I forget for a moment that it is freezing outside.

You can use you favorite vegetables but make sure you add carrots and potatoes.

This makes a big pot of soup.

You’ll need;

1 whole chicken or 1.5 kg of any chicken part(cut into bite size pieces)

2 Onions (quartered)

2 Chili (optional)

2 Stock/bouillon cubes

Black pepper(to taste)

2 Bay leaves

Salt to taste

3 cloves of garlic

1 inch ginger

3 Potatoes (cut into bite size pieces)

Carrots (cut into bite size pieces)

1/4 Cabbage,cut into 1 inch

Any other vegetable you wish to add

Water (as needed)

Wash and cut your chicken

Bite size Chicken

Chop the chili,garlic,onions

Chicken soup I used both red and white onions, put in the pot with the chicken and grate the ginger directly into the pot

 Add all the spices and about 1.5 L of water.

Stir it and leave to cook for 45 min- 1 hour

Skim off any white form you see forming

Cut your potatoes and any other vegetable you are using

Potatoes

 Cabbage

I used frozen vegetable mix in addition to these.

After 45 min-1 hour,add your potatoes and carrots and let cook until tender.

Add the rest of the vegetables

The cabbage goes in last

 Let it come to a boil and remove from heat.

You can enjoy it as it is or serve over a bed of noodles or macaroni.

Enjoy!
