Family Fave: Chicken Soup

Family Fave: Chicken Soup

There’s nothing quite like homemade chicken soup! Perfect for your picky eaters, this quick and easy soup packs loads of goodness into each little mouthful. It’s a family favourite in our home.



2 tablespoons olive oil

4 garlic cloves, minced

1 teaspoon fresh ginger, minced

1 brown onion, finely chopped

1/4 leek, finely chopped

2 celery stalks, chopped

2 carrots, chopped

Handful parsley, chopped

1.5 kg full chicken or drumsticks

8 cups stock or bone broth

1 teaspoon apple-cider vinegar

1 cup raw barley or brown rice (pre-soak if you can)

Squeeze of lemon



-Heat the olive oil in a large saucepan over a medium-high heat.

-Sauté the garlic, onion, leek and ginger until they become translucent.

-Add the carrots and celery and stir for 3–5 minutes. Then add the chicken, stock or bone broth and the apple-cider vinegar and bring to the boil.

-Once the soup has come to boil, turn the heat down, place the lid on and cook for 1 hour.

-At the 1-hour mark, add in the barley or rice and the parsley and continue cooking for another hour.

-After another hour, remove the chicken and debone, discarding the bones then add the chicken meat back into the pot and stir. Season with salt and pepper, if desired, and a squeeze of lemon.


*we like to serve this quite thick to the kids as it’s easier for them to eat. If you want it more soupy simply add another 1-2 cups of water when putting it all together or pull back on the barley.
