A warming homemade chicken soup from scratch that is healthy, delicious and will keep you warm!
- 2 chicken thighs
- 1 onion, peeled and chopped
- 1 big potato, peeled and chopped
- 1 carrot, chopped
- bell pepper (optional)
- bunch of fresh mint or 2 tbsp dry mint
- freshly ground pepper
- salt to taste
- 3 tbsp parsley, chopped
- thin noodles (a handful)
- Boil the chicken thighs in a pot with 4 cups water until cooked, take them out of the pot, transfer into a bowl with cold water. Save the broth. This step takes around 40 minutes.
- Let the chicken thighs cool off a little bit, so you don’t burn your hands. then start removing the bones and the skin, then pulling the meat apart.
- Transfer the meat back into the pot with the broth and add in the onion, carrot, potato, mint, noodles, bell pepper. Add salt! I usually add 1/2 tsp salt and then taste some more if needed. Cook for 10-15 minutes until the potatoes are done. Have a taste, add black pepper and more salt if needed.
- Take off heat and top with parsley. Mix in and serve immediately, enjoy! You can store this soup in the fridge for 3-5 days.
