- ¼ teaspoon of dried thyme
In order to make the soup, mix broiler-fryer, 4 cups of water, seasoning, thyme, and celery tops in a large pot. Cover the pot with a lid and allow it to simmer for about 45 minutes. The right to take the pot off the stove is when the chicken tenders. At this stage, you will have to remove the chicken as well as the celery, leaving behind the broth only.
At this stage, you will observe a layer developing on the top of the soup. You will have to remove that layer of fat as much as possible and an extra two cups of water. Then you will have to cook it further for 20 more minutes. This will enable your soup to thicken. Let it cook while covering the lid of the pot.
After 20 minutes, add the bones and the chopped chicken to the broth mixture. You will have to cook it for 5 minutes more while discarding all the bay leaf. Ladle the soup in to separate bowls and add some pepper.
