  4. Turn off the stove, discard water, and wash pot.
  5. Chop onion, celery and carrots to the same size, set aside.

  11. After about 1-minute add onions, celery and carrots to oil and stir until the onions are translucent (about 3 minutes). This brings out the flavors.

  14. After 30 minutes, reduce heat to low, cover and let simmer until ready to eat, after 30 minutes is fine, the longer it simmers, the more flavor it develops.

This recipe yields a lot of chicken soup, it will keep in the fridge for 2 days, but I prefer to divide it up into single servings and freeze. Then whenever I want soup, it is just a microwave away. Next week...squash soup...This is super simple and oh so delicious.
