Immune boosting Mexican Chicken Soup is loaded with Veggies and made with bone-in chicken. The recipe is from my mother in law, and I love how easy it is to whip up together if you’re in a pinch.

Author's Notes

If you buy a whole chicken at the store, ask the butcher to break it down for you. It will save you time and hassle of cutting up a whole chicken.

Cooking Instructions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
In a large heavy pot, add Oil (1 tablespoon) over medium high heat. Place seasoned Whole Chicken (1) pieces skin side down and brown for a couple of minutes then flip over.
Step 2
After both sides are browned add Water (8 cup), and Onion (1), cover with lid and bring to a boil. Once boiling reduce the heat to a low boil for about 10 minutes.
Step 3
Now add Russet Potato (1), Zucchini (1), Green Beans (1 cup), Carrot (3), Roma Tomato (2), Salt and Pepper (to taste), and Dried Oregano (1/2 teaspoon), Allow to return to a low boil for an additional 10-15 minutes until chicken is fully cooked and carrots and potato are slightly soft.
Step 4
Turn off heat, and carefully remove onion and chicken pieces. Once the chicken is cooled enough, remove skin and bone from chicken. Place remaining chicken in a bowl and shred with 2 forks, then place back into the soup. If you have excess chicken just add what you want for the soup and save the remaining for another meal.
Step 5
Serve with White Rice (to taste) on the bottom and Lime Wedge (to taste) on the side. Or with tortillas for dipping into the soup.
