Home Made Chicken Soup

You know you like chicken soup on a cold day,
take an hour and make it yourself your way.
I like it with cooked egg noodles but you
feel free to make chicken soup with rice,
or any cooked small pasta that you desire.
I added in some garlic but you can omit it.
Adding in some chopped spinach is also good.

2 tablespoons olive oil
2 celery stalks, sliced
1 garlic clove, peeled and minced
1 onion, peeled and cut up
1 carrot, peeled and sliced
4 cups cold water
1 teaspoon dried chives
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/8 teaspoon sugar
2 chicken thighs with skin on
egg noodles or rice or other pasta

Place oil in a soup pot,
add in celery, garlic, onion,
and carrots to saute on high heat
stirring for about 5 minutes.
Add into the soup pot the water,
stir to get the brown bits on bottom.
Add in the chives, and salt to taste.
Add in the ground black pepper, sugar
then the two chicken thighs skin side down.
Turn heat to a simmer for two hours.
Cut cooked chicken off the skin and thighs
serve with cooked noodles, rice or pasta.
