Just like mom used to make!
1 Chicken (raw) most of you know this but trust me...not everyone does :)
3 med onions diced fine
5-6 stalks of celery
carrots-as many as you like (cut into small bit sized slices/chunks) I use approx 4 cups
3 - 32 oz boxes of chicken broth
pastina /alphabets or any other small pasta -approx 1 cup uncooked. You can add more as desired.
In one large pot add all of the above ingredients making sure you use enough chicken broth to completely cover the chicken (add more or use less-which ever works depending on the size of your chicken and pot.
On Medium High, cook this for approx 45 minutes or until chicken falls off the bones.
Remove Chicken from the pot, debone and place all of the chicken bits and pieces back into the pot with the onions, carrots and celery.
On medium heat add in your pasta.
Soup is done when pasta is soft.
Serve with warm French bread............. Comfort food at it's finest!
