  • 1 1/2 chickens, already cooked only white meat
  • 3 quarts chicken broth
  • 1 Tbs garlic minced
  • 1 large onion chopped
  • 4 oz carrots chopped or sliced
  • 1 tsp ground pepper
  • 1 tsp salt


  1. Start with two already roasted chickens. You can roast them yourself or purchase ones that have already been cooked.

  2. Take all the white meat chicken off the bone, chop to desired size chunks and set aside in a large bowl and discard bones (or save for a stock).
  3. Peel and chop the onion. Peel and slice carrots. (Again, to save time, you can purchase already sliced vegetables.)

  4. In a large pot, heat up the broth and add the garlic, onion, carrots, salt, and pepper. If you have other vegetables on hand (parsnips, turnips, rutabaga, celery, etc.), feel free to throw some in.
  5. When it begins to boil, turn flame to a simmer and add in the chicken.
  6. Let simmer for about 30 minutes.

  7. Divide into freezer containers for future meals or serve hot to your family!
