BB Chicken SoupBroiler Fryer, cut up
Sprig of fresh rosemary
several sprigs of fresh parsley
one or two bay leaves
optional: carrots, celery, potato (discard after cooking)
Acini Pepe *44 pasta (I use Ronzoni)
Boil chicken for an hour, remove chicken, optional vegetables if used and herbs. Chill in fridge. Remove as much chicken fat as you wish. (you can eat the chicken but I think most of the flavor is boiled out of it. Happy puppy time!)
To make soup add a tsp boullion for every cup of broth. Add pasta according to box directions. (1/2 box for four cups of broth) Cook according to package directions.
You can also reheat broth, add chicken and make dumplings.

In Dutch oven, combine chicken, bouillon and water. Add parsley, celery, carrot, onion, salt, pepper and bay leaf. Cover and simmer 1 hour or till chicken is tender, remove chicken from broth.
