Easy Chicken Soup from a Roasted Chicken

Cook time: 20-30 minutes
Total time: 45 minutes
Yield: 4-6 servings



Ingredients
  • 1 Roasted Chicken (or at least most of it)
  • 1 gallon (plus or minus) Chicken Stock
  • 3 Carrots
  • 3 Ribs of Celery
  • 1/4 Onion
  • 2 Bay Leaves
  • Salt and Pepper
(Optional ingredients)
  • 1 cup Sauteed Collard Greens (in this case left overs)
  • 1 can Lentils (rinsed)

Cooking Directions

In a large pot, heat the chicken stock over Medium-High heat. While the liquid is heating up, slice the carrots, and coarsely chop the roasted chicken meat, onion, and celery. Throw them into the pot. Let that cook for about ten minutes until the carrots are nearly cooked. Then put in the lentils and greens. Cover and simmer for 10 - 20 minutes.

Serve with toasted bread and a drizzle of sour cream or creme fraiche.
