THICK NUTRITIOUS CHICKEN SOUP
This is my hubby's recipe, he makes the most divine chicken soup, it is thick and full of nutritious goodness. One of those real 'feel good meals'. A lovely winter meal or when you just need a pick me up, coz the immunity has dropped. He never follows a recipe and just raids the fridge and veggie garden for whatever is in season and available at the time. But this is more-or less, give or take the standard recipe. He makes an enormous pot and then we freeze it in Tupperware, for a quick meal in nights to come.
2kg of chicken pieces
enough water to cover the chicken and some
1 Tablepoon chicken stock powder, or 1 stock cube
1 large onion, finely chopped
1 potato, peeled and cubed into 1cm blocks
2 stalks celery, including the leaves, chopped finely
1 large red caspium pepper, finely chopped.
4 cloves garlic, crushed
2 baby marrow (zucchini), top and tailed and finely chopped
1 red chili, finely chopped
