8 cups chicken broth
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1 bay leaf
Salt and pepper, to taste
Fresh parsley, chopped, for garnish
- Take a tablespoon of olive oil in a pot and heat it at medium temperature. Add the chicken pieces and cook until browned on all sides, about 5-7 minutes.
- Remove the chicken from the pot and keep them aside for some time. Add the onion and garlic to the pot and cook until the onion is translucent, about 3-5 minutes.
- Add the carrots and celery to the pot and cook for another 3-5 minutes.
- Return the chicken to the pot and add the chicken broth, dried thyme, and bay leaf.
- Bring the soup to a boil, then reduce the heat and let it simmer for 30-40 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through and the vegetables are tender.
- After removing the chicken from the pot, shred it for some time. Discard the bones and return the shredded chicken to the pot.
- Add little salt and pepper in soup for the taste.
- Serve hot, garnished with fresh parsley.
- If you like your soup to be thicker, you can add a few tablespoons of flour to the pot when you add the vegetables. If you prefer a spicier soup, you can add a dash of hot sauce or a pinch of red pepper flakes.
