Easy homemade chicken and vegetable soup.

Total Time: 1.5 hours

Yield: 12

Source: This recipe is also featured on my blog


  • 1 whole chicken
  • 2 cups diced carrots
  • 2 cups corn
  • 2 diced onions
  • 1 diced group of celery
  • 2 cups peas
  • pepper or other seasonings
  • rice or noodles, if desired


  1. Boil one chicken in water to cover with 3 inches extra. Boil until well done and meat starts to pull away from bone. Let cool. Draw fat to the top with ice OR let sit in refrigerator over night, and remove fat from top the next morning.
  2. After removing fat, remove skin and meat from bones. Save the liquid. It's your stock. Feed the fat and skin to the animals, it's good for their coat.
  3. Run liquid through a colander. Add the chicken you removed from the bones to that liquid.
  4. Then add vegetables and seasonings to taste: Accent, paprika, pepper, garlic, Cajun spice mix, poultry seasoning.
  5. In a separate pot, boil either rice or noodles. When cooked, drain and rinse well. Add to the chicken and veggies.

Notice that I did not add salt. You can if you like, but we don't. Unless you use a fresh butchered chicken of your own, even the chickens you buy at the store contain salt. If you use canned veggies, they also contain salt, and your seasonings may also have salt. If you are trying to avoid salt, rinse your bought chicken and rinse off your canned veggies.

This soup is easy to make, filling, and the whole family will love it. Perfect for those with diabetes or on a low-carb diet.



  • 10 cups chicken stock (or 10 bouillon cubes with 10 cups boiling water)
  • 2 large chicken breasts, cut into piece sizes your family prefers
  • 1 (4 oz.) can mushrooms, drained
  • 1 (4 oz.) fresh sliced mushrooms (optional, my family loves mushrooms so they are in almost everything I make)
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 4 carrots, chopped
  • 4 celery stalk, chopped
  • 1 bag of cauliflower, chopped (I did this in the food processor to get a fine grain like texture)
  • 1/2 cup butter, plus a couple tsp.
  • 1 small jicama, chopped (optional, but adds a nice faux potato taste and texture to the soup)
  • 2 Tbsp. curry
  • salt and pepper, to taste


In food processor fitted with a blade, chop cauliflower into fine particles.

Saute the onion, celery, carrots, and mushrooms in the butter in a large soup pot. Add curry and cook for 3-4 more minutes.


Add chicken stock and simmer over low-med heat for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the rest of your ingredients and simmer for 20-25 more minutes. Enjoy!

This soup is made as a large batch, then frozen in individual containers. I love it because it's so versatile and can be served in a wide variety of ways.

Now that the weather is turning colder I am on a soup kick. I love to cook up extra and freeze in individual serving containers to save time for future meals.

My neighbor was in bed with a sick and I didn't have chicken to make her soup. So I opened a large can of chicken broth, put it on to heat, added 1/4 of an onion diced, 2 sliced carrots, and 1/4 teaspoon dried parsley.

This soup is so versatile because I can add different things, or thicken it up and put it over noodles or rice, or make dumplings, or any number of other ways of fixing it.
