  • 4 cups water

  • 6 bone-in chicken thighs

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 2 carrots, chopped

  • ½ onion, diced

  • 4 cloves garlic, chopped

  • 1 ½ teaspoons salt

  • 1 (32 ounce) carton chicken broth

  • 1 head broccoli, trimmed and chopped

  • ¼ head cauliflower, trimmed and chopped

  • 1 zucchini, trimmed and chopped (Optional)


  1. Place water and chicken thighs in a pot. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer until chicken is tender, about 30 minutes. Occasionally skim off scum as it forms.

  2. Heat olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Cook and stir carrots and onions until they begin to soften, 3 or 4 minutes. Stir in garlic and salt; cook for 1 minute.

  3. Transfer chicken and cooking water to large pot. Add chicken broth. Bring mixture to a boil; reduce heat to low. Cover, leaving lid slightly ajar, and simmer at least 1 hour or up to 4 hours. Remove from heat.

  4. Transfer chicken to a work surface. Remove skin, bones, and cartilage. Shred chicken meat using 2 forks. Return chicken to pot. Add broccoli, cauliflower, and zucchini. Bring back to a simmer over medium-high heat. Reduce heat so soup gently simmers. Cook until vegetables are tender, 20 to 30 minutes.
