My mom makes the best chicken soup. Hands down. Now, I know that you may be inclined to think your mom, or grandma makes the best chicken soup. But you would be mistaken. I’m sorry if I shattered your very concept of reality. Hopes and dreams, crumbling around you. It’s ok. You will get through this.
In the mean time, let me tell you my mom’s secret. She uses the whole precooked rotisserie chicken you get at the grocery store. Peel off the skin, dark meat and bones and then boil that in water for a few hours to make the broth.
To make it even better, take your root veggies and roast them in the oven before adding them to the soup.
Then, discard all the skin, meat and bones. Cut up the white meat from the rotisserie chicken and put it in a bowl just before serving. Ladle broth and roasted root vegetables over chicken meat. Serve and enjoy.
