Ingredients

1 whole chicken (3-1/2 pounds / 1.75 kg)
1 tbsp (15 mL) olive oil
1 large onion
1 bay leaf
1/2 tsp (2 mL) dried rosemary
1 tsp (5 mL) salt
1/4 tsp (1 mL) freshly ground black pepper
2 cloves garlic
3 carrots
2 leeks
1 parsnip
1 whte turnip
1 red bell pepper
2 celery staks
6 oz (170 g) linguine

Directions

  1. Cut the chicken into 8 pieces. Discard skin from drumsticks, thighs, and breasts. Heat oil in large saucepan over high heat. Put chicken in pan in single layer. Chop onion and sprinkle over chicken. Cook chicken until browned, about 5 minutes on each side. Add bay leaf, rosemary, salt, and black pepper to pan.
  2. Meanwhile, bring 12 cups (3 L) of water to boil. Carefully pour over chicken and simmer, partially covered, until broth is richly flavoured, about 1 hour. Transfer chicken to plate. Strain soup through colander set over large bowl. Discard onion and bay leaf. Skim fat off broth and return broth to saucepan.
  3. Mince garlic. Cut carrots, leeks, parsnip, and turnip into matchsticks. Cut red pepper into thin strips. Cut celery stalks into thin slices. Add to broth and simmer, uncovered, about 5 minutes. When chicken is cool enough to handle, remove meat from bones. Cut into bite-size pieces and add to soup. Stir in linguine and cook until tender, about 15 minutes.
