Whether it’s the flu season or no, there is nothing like a bowl of chicken soup to nourish you. This broth combines the goodness of vegetables with the flavour of chicken.
In a small pot, boil 5 cups of water with 2 chopped onions, 4-5 pieces of chicken with bones tied into a tight bundle in a small piece of clean cloth (just like a bouquet garni but with just chicken pieces), 3 small carrots, sliced, 2 tsp black pepper, salt and 3 large tomatoes, chopped.
Remove the bones and save the chicken; shred it into small pieces. Set aside.
Liquidise the vegetables into a thick broth.
Pour the cooked broth into a large soup pot. Add the shredded chicken pieces.
Season with fresh parsley, crushed peppercorns and salt.
Cook for 7 minutes more, stirring well. Serve hot.
