Yael's Chicken Soup Recipe

Making chicken soup every few weeks is a tradition in our house. Yael's chicken soup recipe is our new favorite. I tend to keep the chicken stock, veggies, noodles and chicken all separate and put them together depending on who I am serving. I find adults like more veggies and chicken and  my kids like more broth and noodles.

1 whole chicken ( organic kosher)
4-5 carrots if u like more use more
2 parsnip
1 turnip
2-3 celery stalks
Peel and cut vegetables into chunks
1 bunch parsley
1 bunch dill.   Put these together in mesh bag.
Clean chicken put in large pot - cover with water- depends how big pot Is  but chicken should be completely covered..
Add 1-2 tablespoons salt
1-2 teaspoons pepper
Bring soup to boil ( skim off fat)then let it simmer on low for at least 2-1/2. Hrs..
I usually let it cool then put in fridge overnight and next day skim off anymore fat and take out chicken and vegetables.
You might have to adjust seasoning-
