Chicken clear soup

By Food E Fare

Chicken clear soup, also known as chicken consommé, is a light and flavorful broth made by simmering chicken and aromatic vegetables until the flavors are extracted. The goal is to create a clear and consommé-like liquid, which is different from heartier and more opaque chicken soups.

Here's a basic recipe for making chicken clear soup:


  • 1 whole chicken or chicken bones and carcass
  • Water (enough to cover the chicken)
  • 1 onion, peeled and halved
  • 2 carrots, peeled and halved
  • 2 celery stalks, halved
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • Fresh parsley
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Rinse the chicken under cold water. Place the chicken in a large pot and cover it with enough water to submerge the chicken.
  • Bring the water to a boil over medium-high heat. As it starts to boil, skim off any foam or impurities that rise to the surface.
  • Add the halved onion, carrots, celery, crushed garlic, and a few sprigs of fresh parsley to the pot.
  • Reduce the heat to a simmer and let the soup cook uncovered for about 1.5 to 2 hours. The low simmer helps clarify the soup and intensify the flavors.
  • After simmering, strain the soup through a fine mesh sieve or cheesecloth to remove the solids, resulting in a clear broth.
  • Season the chicken clear soup with salt and pepper to taste.
  • If desired, you can serve the clear soup as is or enhance it with additional ingredients such as finely chopped fresh herbs, cooked rice, or small pasta.


Chicken clear soup is often served as a light and soothing starter or consumed on its own. It's a comforting option, especially when you're looking for a broth that is both flavorful and clear.
