This is the most delicious and vibrant take on chicken soup, the get well classic, that I could come up with. Lots of hearty pieces of chicken meat, a sweet broth with lots of bright veggies. I add a touch of heat with hot sauce at the end to get a little sweat going to get all those evil sick bugs out. Make it ahead of time and just heat it up at my friend's house.

Yield:
6 to 8 servings
Level:
Easy

Ingredients

  • 4 small onions, quartered
  • 6 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 1 pound carrots, peeled and cut into 2-inch chunks
  • 2 pounds chicken thighs, skin removed
  • Handful thyme sprigs
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 1/2 pounds red bliss potatoes, washed and quartered
  • 2 handfuls green beans, trimmed
  • Hot pepper sauce, to taste

Directions

In a large pot, combine onions, garlic, carrots, chicken and thyme. Season with salt and pepper. Add cold water to cover. Bring to boil then reduce heat to a simmer. Skim and discard any scum that may come to the top. 

Simmer until the meat of the chicken falls off the bone with almost no pressure from a fork, about 1 to 1 1/2 hours. Remove the chicken pieces to a plate. Use 2 forks to separate the meat from the bone. Add the meat back to pot. 

Add the potatoes, cook until fork tender, about 20 minutes. Add green beans, cook until crisp-tender, about 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from heat, add hot sauce, salt and pepper to taste.
