I make a very good chicken soup on the stove but i have never tried it smoked. Here is the recipe ( perhaps you could smoke the chicken before making the soup with it?)
6 pounds of chicken (cut up and usually raw)
1 pound of cut up carrots ( 1" to 2" long)
1 package of celery (cut into 2" pieces)
2 pounds of parsnips ( peeled and cut into 1" to 2" pieces
1 whole onion (peeled)
2 tablespoons of salt ( can be more if you like salt)
put all the ingredients in a large pot and fill with water to cover the ingredients.
Cook on a medium heat and once boiling reduce to low.
Cook for 21/2 to 3 hours ( you can't really overcook it).
Your soup is ready, but it actually tastes better if you wait a day and let it sit in your refrigerator, then reheat it until nice and hot.
