Chicken Soup

Course: Main Course
Cuisine: Greek
Servings: 4


  • 1 chicken
  • 200 gr Angel hair pasta
  • 2 carrots chopped
  • 1 onion sliced
  • 1 stick of celery
  • 2-3 sprigs of dill
  • 1 star anise
  • 1-2 lemons
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • In a large pot, add your chicken, onions, carrots and celery, cover and let it boil on low medium until the chicken is cooked. Don’t forget to discard any foam when it starts boiling.
  • Once the chicken is cooked, remove it from the pot. Take the flesh off the bones and keep aside.
  • Add the angel hair or pasta of choice and the dill, allow to boil for 10-15 minutes. In the last few minutes add in the lemon juice.
  • Your broth is ready to serve. You can add as much chicken as you like in each bowl when serving.If you didn't add the lemon juice earlier, or if you are really keen on citrus flavours you can add some more on the table. If there is any left-over chicken – think sandwich!
