My Aunt Ticky's Chicken Soup

Whole chicken, about 3#
1 box Swanson’s chicken stock
Large onion, chopped
4-5 potatoes, cubed
2-3 cans finely diced tomatoes
I can niblets corn, drained
2 small green Tabasco peppers (the ones in vinegar in a small jar-optional)

Wash chicken, place in large Dutch oven. Season with salt and pepper. Add all the stock. Cover and boil until done. Remove chicken, let it cool. Add onions, and tomatoes to broth. Simmer until onions are clear. Add cubed potatoes, cook until done. Remove chicken from skin and bone, add back to soup.  Adjust seasoning to taste.  Add drained corn. When well heated, it is ready to serve with saltine crackers and Tabasco Sauce for those who like it.
I always called my Aunt Zulee "Ticky", and I'm not sure why. She used to make this soup when we came to visit. It is a very simple, but delicious soup. The original recipe was created by my Uncle Len, who made it with different types of game when he went hunting.


  1. Wow, this sounds like more good, comfort food & SO easy, too.

  2. My guys never get tired of this soup,especially Michael. He asks for it in the summer as well!
