Serves Depends on family size | Prep Time | Cook Time aprox 2 hours


Package of Chicken Legs & Thighs

Package of Boneless Chicken Breast

Celery {whole celery, including greens} diced

Carrots {can get a bag of baby carrots if you don't want to peel} diced

2 whole tomatoes

One whole onion

2-3 potatoes, peeled and cut

Salt & Pepper

1 package Orzo macaroni
Grated Locatelli Cheese

Wash & drain chicken {leave skin on}. Fill large pot 3/4 full with water. Put chicken into the pot. Add salt. While it's boiling, cut up carrots, potatoes, tomatoes & 3/4 of celery {including greens}. Chop onion. After chicken has been boiling for about 10 minutes, skim fat off the top and then throw all other ingredients in. Lower heat to simmer. Add a little more salt & pepper. Cover pot. Allow to cook for about an hour & 1/2 - 2 hours until veggies are soft. Remove chicken and allow to cool. While chicken is cooling, mash veggies right in the soup to desired consistency. Take skin off chicken & throw out. Shred chicken into a bowl and make sure all bones are taken off & discarded. Check bowl to make sure all bones are gone. Put the chicken back into the soup. Allow to cook for aprox 10-15 more minutes.

Cook macaroni in a separate pot. When done, drain and add into the soup.

Serve with grated Locatelli cheese on top.

My Nonna used to make this for me all the time. You can make enough so you have a lot left over to freeze and use for future dinners.
