Baby It's Cold Outside

The weather is turning cold fast. This is a great time to cook up some warm chicken soup. This very easy soup can be a base for almost everything. Chicken and dumping, stock, or just like it is, a good home remedy for all that ails you. My Mom taught me to always have some of the soup in the freezer, for the unexpected sniffles.

Mom’s Chicken Soup

1 whole chicken

2 large onions, chopped

5 or 6 celery stalks with leaves, chopped

2 cups baby carrots, chopped

½ cup fresh parsley, chopped


salt and pepper

Cut up chicken and cover with water in large stockpot. Bring liquid to a boil and reduce heat to simmer. Simmer for 15 minutes skimming off waste periodically.

Add rest of ingredients, and simmer for 30 minutes to an hour. Add chopped fresh parsley during remaining ten minutes

Stay Warm, and God bless New Jersey!
