  1. Place chicken in a large pot of water. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, and cook approximately 30 minutes. Remove from water, cool, and shred into bite-size pieces. Discard skin and bones.
  2. In a large stock pot, heat 1 gallon of water with tomato soup and salt. Bring to a low boil. Place cabbage, potatoes, carrot, onion, chicken, and bay leaf in pot, and return to a simmer. Cook at a very low simmer until vegetables are tender, approximately 20 minutes. Add parsley and dill, taste and adjust seasoning with salt if needed, and serve.

Footnotes

  • Note
  • Ground beef or beef stew meat may be used in place of the chicken. If using ground beef, brown in a skillet over medium heat, then drain excess grease. If using stew meat, simmer meat until tender, approximately 2 hours, depending on the cut. As well, chicken poaching liquid or beef stewing liquid may be used in place of the water.

I really like this recipe. I used a large can of diced tomatoes instead of tomato soup- delicious!

I made this soup with vegetarian chicken patties instead of chicken, and it was a big hit with my family. My daughter asked me to make this a lot more often!

WONDERFUL, I USED GROUND BEEF, LOW CAL

This was just like my grandma used to make it. Very yummy with the sour cream and I added a splash of jalapeƱo juice to spice it up. The whole family was happy.

I enjoyed the recipe. I added some salsa to make it a little spicier. This is a keeper for our family.
