Chicken Spaetzle Soup (EASY 30 Minute Meal) instructions

  1. Cube chicken.
  2. In large soup pot, combine ALL "Initially Boiled Together" ingredients and bring to a boil…
  3. While bringing pot to boil, cut/prepare vegetables and spices..
  4. Once pot reaches boil, add "Fresh Veggies" and items from "Once Boiling Begins" and return to a boil..
  5. Once Boiling is reached again, reduce heat and maintain an UNCOVERED low boil..
  6. Set timer for 15 minutes while stirring pot regularly and monitoring soup to make sure low boil is maintained and ingredients are not sticking to bottom of pot..
  7. Once timer rings, check Spaetzle for desired consistency (firm al dente is optimal in my experience, as the Spaetzle will continue to soften as it cools in pot). If needed, cook an additional 1 to 3 minutes or as your desired consistency requires. PLEASE REMEMBER to stop cooking the Spaetzle when it is moderately more firm than your desired finished consistency..
  8. Turn off burner and remove pot from heat..
  9. Once you have checked the Spaetzle, carefully taste the broth and add salt or pepper to taste. At this point, prior to serving, you may add the butter and/or the lemon/lime juice to taste..
  10. Serve and enjoy. We enjoy hearty French and Sourdough breads with the soup as well..
