10 C Chicken Broth
1 medium onion diced
5 small celery stalks diced
2 C carrots diced
2 cooked Chicken breasts diced
3tsp dry Garlic granules
1/2 tsp black pepper
2 chicken boullion cubes
1 package (16 oz) dry green split peas
I like to boil a whole chicken each week and use the fresh home-made chicken broth. It works great in this recipe and in place of oil for sauteing veggies.
Pour just enough of the broth to cover the bottom of a large sauce pan.
Add diced onions and cook until tender.
Pour in the rest of the broth and bring to a boil.
Add the diced carrots, celery and the chicken boullion.
Return to a boil and add a 16 oz package of dry green split peas.
Add dry garilc granules, 1/2 tsp of pepper. Stir and turn heat down.
Let simmer for 25 minutes.
Dice 2 cooked chicken breasts and add to the soup.
Season to tast at this point.
Simmer for another 10 - 20 minutes.(check the softness of the split peas.)
Serve and enjoy.
