I recently made a delicious whole chicken that I roasted in the oven. There are several reasons I like preparing a whole chicken but one of the best reasons is because there are almost always leftovers for the two of us and because I can use the bones to make a nutritious broth.
Making bone broth is a lot less intimidating than you might think. After you carve your chicken or whatever protein you are using, reserve all the bones, including the ones from the legs and wings, and add all of them to a crockpot, cover with water and let cook for up to 24 hours! I usually add in some leftovers or scraps of carrots, celery, and onions, but it’s optional!
So after I made the chicken then the broth, of course, I am making soup!
This particular soup is a household favorite of ours. It’s healthy, filling, hearty, and super delicious!
I love adding a bunch of fresh herbs to soups because they add loads of flavor, nutrients and they’re a really cheap way to do so!
I hope you try out this soup, it’s especially comforting when it’s cold out! Enjoy!
