Chicken and Vegetable Soup

The last days of vacation and the first days back home my boys, all 3 of them, are not 100%. 

My cure - HOT soup loaded with vegetables. 

All moms make soups. I had soup when I was younger and had a sore throat or just didn't feel great.

SOUP cures all! 
(not really)

My boys enjoyed soup followed with an adjustment!!  
They are feeling better - not a 100% - but better!

The Ingredients:
1 chicken fryer
3 cloves garlic, minced
3 stalks of celery
4 - 6 large carrots, diced
1 medium sweet potato
6 leaves of cabbage, sliced
1 onion, diced
1 large tomato, diced
1 zucchini, chopped
2 TBSP Parsley, dried or fresh
Garlic Salt
Lemon Pepper
Italian Seasoning
1 cup tomato sauce, homemade
2 bay leaves

The Directions:

In a large soup pot add washed chicken fryer, water, garlic, onion, lemon pepper, bay leaves and Italian Seasoning. Boil chicken for 1 hour on high or until chicken fully cooked.

Take out chicken fryer and let cool.

Add carrots and sweet potatoes to pot and bring broth back to boil. After 10 minutes add celery, cabbage, tomato, tomato sauce and zucchini.

While the vegetables are boiling de-bone the chicken. I only used about 1 - 1 1/2 cup of chicken and saved the rest for another dish.

** don't throw the bones away. You can make fresh chicken broth. Chicken Bones can go straight into the pot or can be stored in the freezer.

Add Chicken to the vegetables. Check seasoning and add more if needed!

You can serve with noodles but is good with only vegetable!
