Addie Mae’s Liquid Love Chicken Soup

It’s that time of year for chicken soup. Got a pot of this nectar cooking on the stove now and thought I’d share it. Elevates the immune system, clears the head and nourishes the body and soul. Every ingredient should be as organic as you can find. But don’t obsess; healthy intention is the main ingredient here.

Start with a big pot (use less of ingredients depending on size of pot). Fill your pot with water and just throw everything in together:

  •  One large chicken, quartered
  • 7 or 8 carrots cut into 3 – 4” pieces (skin on if organic/off if not)
  • 5 or 6 celery sticks cut into 3 – 4” pieces
  • One large yellow onion, peeled, cut into quarters
  • As much chopped garlic as you can stand. Make sure you chop garlic 15 minutes before cooking to fully release its antibiotic medicinal value
  • Bunch of green kale, pulled off stems and torn into smaller pieces
  • Bunch of Italian parsley, kinda chopped. (To taste. Great nutritionally and works to cleanse system)
  • Handful or two of coriander seeds (aids in digestion, high in Vitamin C, anti-bacterial)
  • Low-salt chicken broth (added later)
  • Brown rice (cooked separately and later)

Bring to boil, lower to simmer and let cook down for a couple of hours. When it’s cooked down an inch, remove the skin and ugly bits but leave the bones. There are good minerals in them bones. Break up the chicken in the pot so the meat is evenly distributed. Pour in a container of chicken broth (try for organic/free-range). Sprinkle in black pepper and sea salt to taste. I always add less salt to the pot. Then I add more to each bowl as needed.

I usually let this cook happy for a total of 3-4 hours before eating but use your instincts on this. You’ll know. The next day it will be even better!

Put some brown rice in a bowl, spoon in that healthy, delicious soup; a bit more salt and pepper. I even put in cayenne pepper, which offers more spice, and is great to clear the head when you have a cold. If you are sick, make sure you are also taking oregano oil, elderberry syrup, olive leaf extract and echinacea/goldenseal extract. Drink lots of water. Sleep. Enjoy!
