Chicken Soup. Dominican style.

Hello friends!!

Chicken soup is one of the most popular recipes in the western world. Nothing like a chicken soup in a fresh and cloudy day. Is there something more comforting than a chicken soup when we are in bed with a flu? Who doesn’t remember a chicken prepared by mom or grandma as a child?

Today I share a recipe inspired in Mrs. Anadina’s (my mother in law and third Mother) hearty soups. She prepares the best broths that I have tasted. Always creamy and delicious. Today is rainy in Santo Domingo, so this recipe fits nicely!


  • ” Chicken. For chicken soup, we like to use either the carcasses, necks, wings, and ribbings because they’re the ones with the most intenseflavor for soup. But any piece would do. Besides those I also used some breasts (for the children)
  • ” 3 potatoes cut in squares.
  • ” 2 carrots, cut in squares..
  • ” 3 rolls of noodles.
  • ” 1 bush of cilantro.
  • ” 1 spoonful of malagueta pepper pellets.
  • ” 1 bouillon cube.
  • ” 2 cups of pumpkin cream. (Just boil the pumpkin with some salt and blend it in its own water, a squirt of milk and a bouillon cube)
  • ” 2 spoonfuls of garlic paste
  • ” Salt to taste


Add a little bit of oil to a boiler and when hot toss the cilantro, garlic and bouillon cube. Allow 30 seconds and add some 3 cups of water and allow to boil.

When it boils add the chicken (not the breasts) then allow to boil for about 15-20 minutes.

Add the potatoes, the carrots, the chicken breasts, a roll of noodles (break it up  well with the hands) and the malagueta pepper pellets and allow  the potatoes and carrots to get soft.

When the potatoes and carrots are ready add the pumpkin cream and the two remaining rolls of noodles. When the noodles are ready, rectify the salt and enjoy!

    • Hi Sairamar! Sure (2 cups of pumpkin cream. (Just boil the pumpkin with some salt and blend it in its own water, a squirt of milk and a bouillon cube) that’s Dominican pumpkin though, which is similar to squash. Thanks for your comment!
