Mama's Chicken Soup Recipe

kept byPLSchley

I made a cheater's version of this recipe. I used chicken that had already been cut into chunks so that I didn't need to cut it up later. Like a previous reviewer, I replaced the parsnip with a handful of potatoes. I omitted the salt and pepper and added 3 heaping tablespoons of herbe de provence, instead. During the last 10 or so minutes of cooking time, I added two handfuls of butterfly-shaped noodles (sorry--I can't remember the proper name at the moment!!). It was a tasty and hearty soup. I will make it again.


1 tablespoon olive oil
1 parsnip, halved lengthwise and cut into 1/4-inch slices
2 carrots, halved lengthwise and cut into 1/4-inch slices
2 celery ribs and leaves, chopped
1 large onion, chopped (about 1 1/2 cups)
1 garlic clove, minced
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
8 cups low-sodium chicken broth
3 skinned bone-in chicken breast halves (about 2 1/2 to 3 pounds)
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
