Chicken Soup for the Body

2 chicken breasts (I use skinless, boneless) or  1 whole chicken

4 large mushrooms

2 carrots

3 stalks celery with leaves

1 large onion

3 cloves garlic

1 tsp onion powder

1 tsp chicken bullion (I use sodium free)

Clean and prepare above ingredients.  Put in large pot and cover with water.  Bring to a boil and then reduce to simmer immediately.  Cook for 1-3 hours.  Remove bones if using whole chicken.  You can also discard the whole vegetables if you prefer a clearer broth.

Add to the broth and chicken:

3 potatoes, diced

3 carrots, cut up

1 – 2 parsnips, diced

1/2 cup celery finely diced

1/4 cup rice, barley, or  small pasta

salt and pepper to preference

Boil until vegetables and grain are cooked through.  You may need to add a bit more water if needed.  Also, you can add other vegetables if you so desire.
