  1. Place chicken in a large pot of water. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, and cook approximately 30 minutes. Remove from water, cool, and shred into bite-size pieces. Discard skin and bones.
  2. In a large stock pot, heat 1 gallon of water with tomato soup and salt. Bring to a low boil. Place cabbage, potatoes, carrot, onion, chicken, and bay leaf in pot, and return to a simmer. Cook at a very low simmer until vegetables are tender, approximately 20 minutes. Add parsley and dill, taste and adjust seasoning with salt if needed, and serve.

Footnotes

  • Note
  • Ground beef or beef stew meat may be used in place of the chicken. If using ground beef, brown in a skillet over medium heat, then drain excess grease. If using stew meat, simmer meat until tender, approximately 2 hours, depending on the cut. As well, chicken poaching liquid or beef stewing liquid may be used in place of the water.

My family of four thought this was acceptable but not a do-again. I followed the recipe exactly but we just did not enjoy it that much. Sorry!

I really like this recipe. I used a large can of diced tomatoes instead of tomato soup- delicious!

I made this soup with vegetarian chicken patties instead of chicken, and it was a big hit with my family. My daughter asked me to make this a lot more often!

WONDERFUL, I USED GROUND BEEF, LOW CAL

This was just like my grandma used to make it. Very yummy with the sour cream and I added a splash of jalapeño juice to spice it up. The whole family was happy.

I enjoyed the recipe. I added some salsa to make it a little spicier. This is a keeper for our family.
