Next Day Homemade Chicken Soup

What to do with the leftover chicken from last night's Roasted Chicken? Hmm? Let's make soup. The chicken carcass can be boiled with veggies to make a tasty homemade chicken stock, which serves as a base for some Next Day Homemade Chicken Soup. I added some fun star shaped semolina pasta to ours, add any pasta or rice that you like *use rice if you are cooking gluten free*. The bread machine made some tasty crusty bread to go along side.

Ingredients:
1 chicken carcass
3 large carrots, chopped
2 stalks celery, chopped
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 onion, quartered
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon Italian Seasoning
water
cooked chicken from Roasted Chicken, ~2 cups

Directions:
Pick the carcass clean of meat and store in the fridge for later use. Cover the carcass with water in a large soup pot, add chopped garlic, onion, 2 carrots, 2 celery stalks and seasonings. You can add most any root vegetable you like, I even added the green carrot tops. Once broth has come to a boil, skim off any foam with a spoon and discard. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 2-3 hours.
Strain your stock and discard the bones and vegetables.

Take strained broth and place it back into a pot. Add the chopped chicken left over from last night's dinner, 2 carrots (chopped), 3 celery stalks (chopped) and your choice of herbs and rice or noodles. Simmer until the noodles and vegetables have cooked and soup is heated through ~ 15-20 minutes. *if using rice, cook it separately and add the cooked rice now. Remove from heat and serve with crusty bread for dipping.
