Classic Chicken Soup from Real Simple


Just when the weather is turning cold, Real Simple comes in to save the day with this amazing recipe for the world's best comfort food - Chicken Soup. The real comfort in this meal is that it only requires about 15 minutes of hands on prep time.

Ingredients
1 3 1/2- to 4-pound chicken
6 carrots, peeled
4 celery stalks
1 large yellow onion, quartered
2 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
1 teaspoon whole black peppercorns

Directions
1. Place the chicken in a large pot.
2. Cut 3 of the carrots and 2 of the celery stalks into 1-inch pieces. Quarter the onion. Add the cut vegetables to the pot with the salt, peppercorns, and enough cold water to cover (about 8 cups). Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, skimming any foam that rises to the top, until the chicken is cooked through, about 30 minutes.
3. Transfer the chicken to a bowl and let cool. Strain the broth, discarding the vegetables.
4. Return the broth to the pot.
5. Thinly slice the remaining carrots and celery. Add them to the broth and simmer until tender, about 10 minutes.
6. When the chicken is cool enough to handle, shred the meat and add it to the soup. Ladle into individual bowls.
