Whenever my fiancé starts getting sick, I know it’s time to make a batch of my Grandma’s chicken soup.. Because if anything can make you feel better, homemade chicken soup will do the trick. My grandma goes by Mawmaw and pretty much everyone calls her that. My whole life Mawmaw has made this dish and served it with hot fresh biscuits.. Talk about a comfort food! I always make this from memory, so today I did my best to measure everything out as best as possible so you can make the world’s best cold remedy in your own kitchen!
– 1 lb. of chicken. We prefer dark meat, but you can use any pieces you like.
– 1 cup chopped carrots
– 1 box of pasta of your choice
– fresh ground black pepper (to taste)
– 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
– 4 tbsp. chicken base. Add more if needed.
– Cream of Chicken Soup
– 2 cups of chicken stock
– large soup pot filled about 1/2 way with water
– 1 tbsp. butter
Bring your water, carrots, chicken stock, black pepper, garlic powder, chicken base & butter to a boil. Add chicken (I remove the skins from the chicken before boiling.) Boil till chicken is fully cooked- I usually cook it for about 20-25 mins. Remove chicken for broth and cut off the bone into bite size pieces then add chicken pieces back to the broth. If your broth has cooked down, add a cup or two of hot water. Add in pasta and cook according to box directions. Once fully cooked, taste to see if additional chicken base, salt or pepper needs added. Don’t forget to serve with hot buttered biscuits!! Enjoy!
I forgot to add the Cream of Chicken Soup in the ingredients pictures.. Whoops!
