Brens’ Spicy Chicken Soup

Spicy Chicken Soup Recipe

This is a creative recipe using what I have on hand.  If you follow my networking you know my husband an I love those rotisserie chickens you can purchase at Costco.  You get a huge and juicy chicken that fills the container it is sold in.  How can you refuse that???  We can eat off this poultry for a week. One of the recipes we use is this Spicy Chicken Soup I came up with one day.   The recipe can use fresh-made salsa as a base or don’t be shy and pop open a fresh jar of your favorite salsa for chips.  I hope you will use the print option on this post to add this to your cookbook.  Please be sure to send me a message and let me know what you think about this dish.

  1. In a large pot over medium heat, combine water, chicken, salt, pepper, garlic powder, parsley, onion powder and bouillon cubes. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer 1 hour, or until chicken juices run clear. Remove chicken, reserve broth. Shred chicken.

Would you add anything different to this soup?  I do add a dash of sour cream and some crunched up corn chips when serving.  If I have cilantro on hand I may add a dash of that as well.  I’d love to hear from you so comment and tell me what you would add in addition to this soup.
