Get Organized

Gather your mise en place; get together all of the equipment needed for the recipe and gather all of the ingredients.

Get Prepped!

Bring a pot of water to a boil. Salt well. Add garlic cloves, and chicken. Reduce heat to a simmer and poach chicken until cooked through – 15 – 20 minutes. When cooked, remove from heat and set aside chicken to rest. Reserve this chicken stock for later.

Dice the onion, carrot and celery. Mince the garlic finely.

Remove the thyme from the stem and roughly chop.

Remove the parsley leaves from the stem and roughly chop. The stems from the herbs can be added in to cook with the chicken.

Get Cooking!

In a large pot add oil and heat over medium. Add onions, carrot, celery and garlic and cook, stirring occasionally for about 5 minutes. Add thyme and bay leaf and cook for about 2 minutes longer, being careful not to let the vegetable brown.

Add the chicken stock from earlier and bring to a boil then turn to a simmer. Let simmer for at least 20 minutes.

Pull chicken meat into strips, any pieces of fat, and bones. Stir chicken into soup and cook over medium heat until warmed through, about 3 minutes.

Once fresh pasta is prepared, boil right in the soup for 1 – 2 minutes until al dente and serve immediately.
