Chicken soup

So let's start cooking it.

To start, let's look at the vegetables first,
we will use one onion,
2 ribs of celery
and 2 medium carrots.
Make sure you wash the celery because it can be dirty sometimes.
Next let's chop our onion you will need to chop the ends of the onion off and then cut halfway down the middle, then you can peel the skin off the onion.
You can just throw away everything you cut and peeled off.
Next, finish chopping the onion.
I'm just doing a rough chop the pieces don't need to be very small for our celery.
We want to chop it a bit differently
I don't like big chunks of celery so I chop it into cubes. This is called cubing so you need to cube the celery like.
Next is our carrots. Carrots have a skin on them that we don't want to eat because the texture is bad so we can peel them off using a tool called a peeler, just chop the ends off the carrot and peel the skin off like this again, just throw away the skin it is not important.
Let's cube this carrot just like we cubed the celery you'll want to do the same thing.
Chop the carrot in half then chop into smaller long pieces then cube those pieces.
Congratulations, you've prepared our vegetables for this soup.
Here they are, it's important to prepare things before you cook. You'll also want to get your chicken for this recipe. I'm using four bone-in chicken thighs these work well because of the skin bones and fat and the thighs.You can also use one whole chicken.
Let's go and see what we'll use to cook with. I'm using a medium sized pot it makes about six servings of soup so it's time to put our chicken into the pot add the vegetables we prepared into the pot.
We'll also be adding two teaspoons or 10 grams of a dried herb called time now you can add your liquid.I'm adding about eight cups or 1.8 liters of water or however much you need to cover the chicken and fill the pot.
After this, I like to stir it around a bit just to mix everything together.Now we'll turn our heat on to high and leave it on high until the soup starts to simmer.
We don't want the soup to boil, we just want to cook it very gently, stir it a little bit just to make sure everything is okay.
Once the soup is simmering and not boiling reduce the heat to low and cover the soup with the lid.
Okay, now we're going to cook the soup like this, for one hour, you can check on the soup a few times and stir it a bit but I like to just let it cook for one hour without touching it.
So after one hour you should be able to see the chicken fat on top of the soup and the chicken should be fully cooked.
Now, we're going to remove the chicken from the soup using a tool called tongs.
To do this,which makes it very easy,we move the chicken to a plate and let the chicken cool down for about 10 to 15 minutes.
During this time, give the soup another stir and add one and a half teaspoon or 2.5 grams of another dried herb called marjoram.
We're building some really great flavor now,
Go ahead, and stir the marjoram.
I like this next step because it helps to build the chicken flavor of the soup.
Skim off some of the chicken fat on top and add it to a small bowl.
You can see skim off 1 cup or 235 milliliters. Next take one tablespoon or 15 grams of flour and put it into the fat you skimmed off.
Take a fork and mix these together until it looks and smells like a chicken gravy.
This is going to help boost the flavor of our soup and also make it just a little bit thicker. So put the gravy into the soup and mix them together quickly with a whisk.
You'll start to see that the soup thickens a little bit.
Let's go back to our chicken which should be cool enough to handle.
Right now, you can just pull the chicken off of the bone with your hands.You'll want to pull all the chicken off and throw away the bones before we put our chicken back.
We should taste the soup we are checking for the flavor.
Maybe, it needs a little bit of salt or pepper.
Now it's time to put our chicken back into the soup,
Just throw it in and stir it around,
there you're done, you can of course add more ingredients to the soup, many people like to make it spicy.
This soup is very warm it tastes savory rich and deep in flavor. This is also very healthy you can also add some cooked noodles to it or some rice so that it will taste very well. Hope you enjoyed today's recipe.
