From the kitchen of Joan Knewasser.  When you have a sore throat
& a case of the sniffles, nothing is as comforting as a steaming bowl
of homemade chicken soup.  Good with noodles or rice.

Joan eyeballs the amounts, the following amounts are what I use,
adjust to your taste.  ---Stephanie
In a large pot:
whole chicken (4 lb bone in)
12 c water
2 1/2 tsp celery salt
2 1/2 tsp garlic salt
onion salt -- Steph uses 2 1/2 tsp onion POWDER instead
2 tsp salt
3/4 tsp pepper
2 Tbsp parsley
Cook 1 hour.
Remove chicken.
Strain broth, return to pot.
Add:
Swanson Broth (49 oz)
3 chicken bullion cubes
2 Tbsp parsley
diced carrots
In a blender puree:
insides of a bunch of celery, leaves too
2 medium onions -- Steph uses 1
some broth
Add to pot.
De-bone chicken & add to broth.
Cook another hour.
Add
cooked pasta or rice.

Freezes well WITHOUT pasta/ rice.
"Throw kindness around like confetti."
