Sopa de pollo (Puchero)

On winter I like to have chicken soup on cold days. It's very easy to prepare and you can have several servings. This is my own recipe, which is slightly different than the one I used in Spain because is difficult to find some of the meat cuts or pig bones that I used to use. But it's tasty the same, so don't worry about that.
You can have just the soup, the soup with the veggies and the chicken, or you can add some pasta or rice on it. I will show you later how to do it.
This time I didn`t have at home chcikpeas, but if you like you can open a can of chickpeas and add them at the same time as the veggies. Ready?



1 or 2 Chicken thighs
1 Beef bone
1 Leek
 2 Celery
2 Medium size potatoes
2 Carrots
1/2 Fennel
Chickpeas (optional)
Eggs (depending on how many servings)

How to prepare it:

1º Take the chicken and and beef and clean it, maybe you like to take the peel out of the chicken.

2º Use a large pot to put the ingredientes.

3º Now wash the fennel and it in half if it's too big, just put half inside the pot. Then peel and clean the rest of the veggies and add everything together on the pot. Is the time to put the chickpeas if you like to add them. Finally put the eggs on top. You can either live the veggies as they are or cut them in half or even in 2 or 3 pieces. Don`t cut too smal the potatoes, otherwise they eill desappear if you boil it too many times.

4º Add enough water to cover everything up, and 1 or even 2 inches over the ingredients Put some salt. Leave it boiling medium heat for over 30 to 45 minutes at least.

5º At the time od the serving you can just eat the soup or add some pasta. If you would like to add pasta or rice, take a medium pan and put some of your chicken broth in the medium pan to boil, it's here where you are going to boil your pasta or rice. Adjust salt, and add water or broth if you need it.

6º On a plate serve some of the vegetables, the pasta or rice that you cooked and pour some broth from your large pot. You can take the eggs out of the pot and peel and slice them to serve in your plate. I like to add some fresh mint. ENJOY!
