Recipe for easy homemade chicken and vegetable soup

This is my mum’s recipe for easy homemade chicken and vegetable soup. There is no technical measuring or precise instructions. In fact it is so easy, even I can do it.

Here is what I do.

  • Home-made chicken stock
  • Left-over cooked chicken
  • Vegetables – I usually use Celery, leeks, carrots and onion
  • Parsley (if you kids can cope – mine can’t)
  • Salt and pepper.

I chop all the veg quite finely and place it in a large pan and cook it for 5 min or so until things start to soften.

Add stock, and more water if you think it needs it and simmer for 30 minutes or until veg are cooked.

Add chicken and parsley

Season to taste

Serve and enjoy.


Sometimes I also add dried soup vegetables (barley, peas and lentils) and this makes more of a broth.

If you make this soup, be sure to let me know how it was.

(I first shared this recipe over 6 years ago, before the invention of Pinterest etc, and as part of a short online course I am taking on Pinterest and Blogging I am experimenting with some posts!)
