I need a good homemade chicken soup recipe. Does anyone have one that you would be willing and would like to share? I love chicken soups but I don't eat the canned ones because they are mostly broth or over cooked noodles and most are so salty and greasy that they give me indigestion or raise my blood pressure.

my roomie throws carrots, celery, chicken, broth and water in a crock pot & lets it cook. of course there's herbs & salt & stuff. When its cooked to get rid of the fat, you need to put it in the fridge overnight & then scrape the fat off before serving. she cooks noodles on the side so they can be added seperately so they don't get over cooked.

I put a chicken in a crockpot along with one onion, a clove of garlic, pepper, one carrot and chopped celery (my daughter-in-law is allergic to carrots and celery and I usually do not put them in it, and I also leave out the parsley as well), red pepper, green pepper, oregano, basil, star anise, a tablespoon of salt, and any other spices I want. I then add water to cover. I then cut up the meat when it is done, and remove the bones. You can also add a can of diced tomatoes, corn, and other vegetables to it, and either rice or macaroni or chopped up potatoes and then put in the chopped chicken. If you make a lot of broth, that is, if you have a large crock pot you can use it for another batch.
