Mmmm chicken soup
I want to write down how I made this soup, because it was good!
So I had 5 chicken thighs in the freezer. I defrosted them and removed the skin and excess fat.
I cut up 3 stalks of celery, 2 carrots, and 1 onion and lightly sauted them in oil in the Dutch oven pot. Then I put the skinless (bone-in) thighs in the oil and cooked them till both sides were lightly colored. I added 6 cups of water and simmered it all for about an hour, I think. I removed the chicken and let it cool, and meanwhile, I added a cup and a half of German noodles.
I removed the meat from the bones when it was cool and shredded it by hand into large pieces, then returned it to the pot. I added salt to taste. That's it! I liked the large slices of carrots.
