There’s just something about a good chicken soup that is so comforting. We’ve been making this version for decades. A restorative mix of homemade chicken stock, tender chicken breast and vegetables infused with ginger, garlic, and lemongrass. 

Makes 19 cups. Trust us: you want leftovers!

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 1/2 cups diced medium carrots
  • 1 1/2 cups diced yellow onion
  • 1 1/2 cups diced fresh celery
  • 3 serrano chiles, seeded and minced
  • 3/4 cup peeled, julienned fresh ginger
  • 1/2 cup minced fresh lemongrass (dried lemongrass will work in a pinch)
  • 1/2 cup minced garlic
  • 14 cups canned reduced-sodium broth or homemade chicken stock (nothing’s better than homemade!)
  • 1 tablespoon dried thyme leaves
  • Cooked shredded chicken reserved from making broth, approximately 3 cups
  • 1/2 bunch cilantro, chopped
  • 1/2 bunch Italian (flat-leaf) parsley, chopped
  • 3 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon kosher salt or to taste

Instructions

Heat olive oil in a large stockpot set over medium-high heat. Add the carrot, onion, celery, chiles, ginger and lemon grass. Sauté vegetables for 10 minutes. Add garlic and cook for 5 minutes more.

Add stock and bring to a boil. Add thyme and simmer until vegetables are tender, about 10 minutes. Add cooked chicken and simmer just until it is heated through. Add cilantro, chopped parsley and salt and serve.
