Entry 11 – Chicken soup for the soul!

What to do with a leftover chicken carcass? Don’t throw it away!! Make soup!

We had chicken for dinner yesterday and as it is so cold and I am out a lot running hot meals are a favourite at the moment and so I figured it was an excuse to make more soup and it’s healthy and good for you! Β I have to plan ahead otherwise when I get hungry I will either a) go into full on meltdown mode or b) destroy my sons left over Christmas chocolate (and I mean the entire family sized bar of Toblerone – easy)! Here’s how:

  • 1 x chicken carcass
  • 2 stocks or celery chopped
  • 2 carrots chopped
  • 1 onion diced
  • Chicken gravy granules or sachet
  • Leftover chicken shredded
  • Rosemary or basil to season (optional)
  • Salt and pepper to season

Literally put everything (except the chicken meat) in a large enough saucepan and add enough boiling water to cover the ingredients. Bring to the boil and then simmer for 30 mins. Using a large colander or sieve you can remove the bones and carcass. Then add the shredded chicken to the stock – can be as much or as little or have none and keep as stock!

Will keep in the fridge for 4 days or can be frozen.

Healthy! Cheap! Yum!

Enjoy x
