Hungarian / American Chicken Soup.

1 or 2 Chickens cut in 8 pieces ea.
I bunch of carrots or 2 cans of baby carrots
I bunch Celery or 2 cans of mixed Vegetables.
2 onions 1/4ered


Poultry seasoning

Season Chicken with all 5 seasonings and place in large 4 or 5 quart pot add vegetables. If using fresh carrots and celery do not cut in pieces. Clean and cut to as close to full length as possible. Lay on top of chicken and season lightly with the 5 seasonings. Lay onions on top of other veggies. If using canned veggies add the liquid from can to pot.

Optional; Add about 4 ozs. of Lambrusco wine.

Fill pot with water to about 1 inch from the brim.

Cover and bring to a boil.

Reduce heat to a simmer after 5 minutes of boiling.

Simmer till veggies are super soft and chicken falls off the bone.
And freeze some for during the week.

As Dolly would say, "NUMMERS"!  lol


The traditional Hungarian presentation is to place a piece of chicken whole in the center of the soup bowl and then lay a whole carrot and a whole celery next to the chicken then some onions over the whole works and pour the broth over the parts.

The Americanization of the soup is still to place a piece of chicken whole in the bowl and pour broth and veggies over it and serve.





  1. I agree... nummers!
    I love chicken soup and leaving the pieces large is something new to me, but sounds delicious.
    Thanks for playing along every week.

  2. Oh Italian soup sounds very similar to yours, but soup is one I save for the winter to warm up the house along with anything needed to bake. This one's a keeper. Thanks for playing along.

  3. That is the heartiest chicken soup I've ever seen - looks yummy! :)
