  • 500g of chicken thighs or one whole chicken
  • 1 onion
  • 2 ribs of celery
  • 2 medium carrots
  • 10g (2 tsp) of dried thyme
  • 1.8L (8 cups) of water
  • 2.5g (1/2 tsp) of dried marjoram
  • 5g (1 tsp) of salt
  • 2.5g (1/2 tsp) of black pepper

OPTIONAL:-    15g (1 tbsp) of all-purpose flour

To start let’s look at the vegetables we will use..

  • 1 onion
  • 2 ribs of celery and
  •  2 medium carrots

 NOTE:-  make sure you wash the celery because it can be dirty sometimes

STEP 1:-

  •  let’s chop our onion you will need to chop the ends of the onion off and then cut halfway down the middle then you can peel the skin off the onion you can just throw away everything you cut and peeled off next finish chopping the onion in half

STEP 2:- 

  • Next you can see how I chop the onion here I’m just doing a rough chop the pieces don’t need to be ery small for our celery we want to chop it a bit differently I don’t like big chunks of celery so I chop it into cubes like this , this is called cubing soyou need to cube the celery like I show here

STEP 3:- 

  • Next our carrots ….carrots have a skin on them that we don’t want to eat because the texture is bad so we can peel them off using a tool called a peeler just chop the ends off the carrot and peel the skin off like this again just throw away the skin it is not important

STEP 4:-

  • Let’s cube this carrot just like we cubed the celery you’ll want to do the same thing chop the carrot in half then chop into smaller long pieces then cube those pieces


congratulations you’ve prepared your vegetables for this soup,  

Here they are it’s important to prepare things before you cook you’ll also want to get your chicken for this recipe I’m using four bone-in chicken thighs these work well because of the skin bones and fat and the thighs you can also use one whole chicken

let’s go see what we’ll use to cook

STEP 1:-

  •  I’m using a medium sized pot it makes about six servings of soup so it’s time to put our chicken into the pot add the vegetables we prepared into the pot we’ll also be adding two teaspoons or 10 grams of a dried herb called time now you can add your liquid .

STEP 2:-

  • I’m adding about eight cup sor 1.8 liters of water or however much you need to cover the chicken and fill the pot after this I like to stir it around a bit just to mix everything together now we’ll turn our heat onto high and leave it on high until the soup starts to simmer like this we don’t want the soup to boil we just want to cook it very gently stir it a little bit

STEP 3:- 

just to make sure everything is okay once the soup is simmering and not boiling reduce the heat to low  and cover the soup with the lid

  • Okay we’re going to cook the soup like this for one hour you can check on the soup a few times and stir it a bit but I like to just let it cook for one hour without touching it so after one hour your soup should  able to see the chicken fat on top of the soup and the chicken should be fully cooked looks great but it’s not ready yet

STEP 4:-

  • Now we’re going to remove the chicken from the soup I’m using a tool called tongs to do this which makes it very easy we move the chicken to a plate and let the chicken cool down for about 10 to 15 minutes during this time give the soup another stir .

STEP 5:- 

  • Add one half of a tea spoon or 2.5 grams of another dried herb called marjoram

we’re building some really great flavor now go ahead and stir the marjoram

I like this next step because it helps to build the chicken flavor of the soup skim off some of the chicken fat on top and add it to a small bowl you can see how much I’m skimming off here probably about 1 cup or 235 milliliters

STEP 6:-

  • Next take one tablespoon or 15 grams of flour and put it into the fat you skimmed off take a fork and mix these together until it looks and smells like a chicken gravy this is going to help boost the flavor of our soup and also make it just a little bit thicker

STEP 7:-

  • So put the gravy into the soup and mix together quickly with a whisk you’ll start to see that the soup thickens a little bit let’s go back to our chicken which should be cool enough to handle right now you’ll want to pull all the chicken off and throw away the bones before we put our chicken back in we should taste the soup we are checking for the flavour maybe it needs a little bit of salt or pepper well I tasted mine and it needed both so I added
  •  1 TSP or 5 grams of salt and
  • 1/2 teaspoon or 2.5 grams of black pepper stir the salt and pepper in and
  •  I tasted my soup and it was perfect

STEP 8:- 

  • Now it’s time to put our chicken back into the soup just throw it in and stir it around there you’re done… you can of course add more ingredients to the soup many people like to make it spicy, this soup is very warm it tastes savory rich and deep in flavor it reminds me of something my mother would make this is also very healthy  ….

 wow  that tastes great ..I hope you enjoyed a lot and learned many different words and phrases
