Homemade Chicken Soup

So, lately everyone I know has been getting the flu and strep throat. My husband and I got strep throat and I had to make soup for a whole month! This soup helped a lot and I want to share this amazing recipe for those cold winter days or those horrible sick days.

Now the power of organic meats and vegetables comes in handy in recipes like this. I am a big user of everything organic! There are so many preservatives and antibiotics in our food, people don’t realize how that affects your body in bad ways so this recipe consists of organic chicken and organic vegetables 🙂

1 whole organic chicken
1 stock of organic celery
1 bag of organic carrots
1 whole clove of garlic
1 whole onion
Seasoning: Rosemary, Oregano, Thyme, Salt, Pepper, Cayenne, Turmeric

Put the whole chicken in a pot full of water and set to high heat. Once boiling, set to the lowest heat possible that still allows a soft boil. Boil the chicken for 3 hours (boiling the whole chicken for 3 hours allows for the nutrients from the bone marrow to cook into the soup which is really good for your immune system)

Once the 3 hours are up, remove chicken and debone, putting pieces back into boiling water.

Chop the celery, carrots, garlic, and onion. Add to the soup.

Add all seasoning to taste. Only thing I add more of is turmeric because it is a natural anti-inflammatory.

Let soup boil on medium-high heat for about 30 minutes or until vegetables are tender.

Hope you enjoy!
Thank you for taking a Journey with a Housewife!
