Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Place the chicken in a large pot with the carrots, celery, onion, and salt. Add enough cold water to cover (about 8 cups). Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer gently for 45 minutes, skimming off any foam that appears. Add additional water as necessary to keep the chicken covered.

  • Transfer the chicken to a plate and let cool. Remove and discard the carrots, celery, and onion.

  • Add the green beans, asparagus, tomato, and turnip to the broth and simmer until the vegetables are tender, about 5 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, shred the chicken meat, discarding the skin and bones. Add the meat and pepper to the soup and stir to combine. Ladle into individual bowls.
