A crock-a-deelicious chicken soup!
- 1 box Chicken & Thyme Soup
- 1 Seasoning Packet (included)
- 1 large onion, chopped
- 2 whole chicken breasts, (uncooked) skinned (1.5-2lbs total)
- 10 cups water*
Rinse rice, barley, peas, and lentils and sort out any foreign material. Place in a kettle with seasoning packet contents, onion, raw chicken breasts, and water. Bring to a boil, stir, cover, and simmer for 1 hour. Stir occasionally to avoid scorching and add water if necessary. After an hour remove chicken breasts, cool slightly, bone, and return meat pieces to soup. Heat through, serve, and enjoy. soup can be thinned with water if too thick.
*Note: If you use boneless, skinless chicken breasts, substitute 5 cups of chicken broth, no salt added, for 5 cups of water.
Feel free to add 1/2 cup of any or all of the following at the same time as the onion: chopped celery, carrots, green pepper, fresh peas, broccoli.
