Leftover Roast Chicken Soup

"A great way to get more meals from one chicken! A delicious but light broth with great country flavors. Serve in large bowls with fresh crusty rye bread. Any leftovers of this soup can be strained and used as chicken stock."

This is a handy recipe when you have a leftover chicken carcass, but it does need to be livened up. I add chicken boullion, poultry seasoning & whatever else I feel like. But a good basic soup.


I agree with MC_MA_OF 3 that it was very bland. The only way I like to make chicken soup IS with a left over chicken carcass. The roasting gives the soup a much better flavor, however, you really need to add a lot more seasonings, including salt, which I normally don't cook with, but in a soup, you do need some. By the way, "Mom Of Three", I got a charge out of reading a couple of your reviews. Darn, no tomato juice in the house!!!!

I'm nuts too...

Unimpressive. I had to add 1/4 cup of Wyler's shakers instant bouillon so that it would have a taste. I also added celery & noodles to make it into "Awesome chicken noodle soup" that is found on this site. It makes a good stock, but then why not just call it leftover roast chicken STOCK. Very misleading.
