Emily's Chicken Soup

This was a work in progress, Emily made it several times tweaking her ingredients each time until she came up with the right combination. We like it served with large flakey biscuits.

You Will Need: Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

4 - Chicken Thighs (bone in, skin on)
3 - 10 oz cans Cream of Chicken Soup
1 - 16 oz bag Large Pasta Shells
1 - cup Diced Carrots
4 - Chicken Bullion Cubes
1 - tsp Onion Powder
1 - Tbs Parsley Flakes
1 - dash of Salt (with all of the bullion you don’t need much salt if any)
1 - tsp Pepper
- - Water (as required)

Directions: Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

Boil chicken in a 3 qt sauce pan with 2 bullion cubes until chicken is completely done (approx. 35 minutes) set aside until cool enough to debone, save broth. Prepare pasta as directed, drain but save water. In a large Stock Pot or Dutch Oven (at least 5 or 6 qt) add two cups of the pasta water with 2 bullion cubes, bring to a boil (debone and deskin chicken and cut into small pieces) when bullion is dissolved add all three cans of cream of chicken while stirring, reduce heat, when incorporated thoroughly, add chicken, carrots, and remaining chicken broth (about 2 cups hopefully) continue stirring and add salt, pepper, and onion powder, adjust heat and simmer for about 10 minutes before adding pasta, continue to simmer until carrots are tender, stirring occasionally. At the end of the cooking period add parsley flakes. You may need to add more water or broth, depending on your preference (using broth or stock instead of bullion cubes is fine, we just always seem to have cubes on hand)

If you’re worried about the fat, substitute skinless chicken breast for the thighs, use the reduced fat cream of chicken and you can use one of several methods to remove as much fat as possible from the chicken broth or just buy fat free. You can also bulk up the soup by adding celery, corn, or any type of veggie you like, adjust the broth as needed. Peace and Good Eating.

I love this kinda stuff, especially on a cold winter's day. The hot biscuits are the added touch!
