Chicken soup is a soup made by bringing to a boil and then simmering chicken parts and/or bones in water, with various vegetables and flavorings. The classic chicken soup consists of a clear broth, often served with small pieces of chicken or vegetables, or with noodles or dumplings, or grains such as rice and barley.
Typically, chicken soup is prepared using old hens too tough and stringy to be roasted or cooked for a short time. In modern cities these fowl are difficult to come by, and broiler chickens (young chickens suitable for broiling or roasting) are often used to make soup; soup hens or fowl are to be preferred when available.
Traditional Czech chicken soup (kuřecí polévka) is made from pieces of chicken and vegetables broth, in which fine noodles have been added. The soup may also contain rice, spaghetti (instead of noodles) and other vegetables like potatoes, corn, mushrooms or tomatoes. Usually, the chicken flavor of the soup is more strong when the chicken is boiled in water with salt and only a few vegetables, such as onion and carrots. It is commonly served with sour cream, chopped parsley and black bread.
