Cornish Hen Soup (Sopas de Gallina)
Updated: Jan 1
Living with my mom in the Bronx when I was sick, she made me this soup. The good think about the hen soup is that is full of protein and good for you. I make them how she originally made them for me, Puerto Rican Style. You can always make them how you like and even enjoy the broth alone.
Here is my recipe!
1 small frozen Cornish hen (remove the skin) cut into pieces
3 corn on the cob (frozen) cut in half
2 potatoes cut into cubes
2 carrots cut in small pieces
1 tbs of sofrito (homemade) recipe on this page
1 can of tomato sauce
1 powdered chicken flavored bullion
1 powdered Sazon with Achiote
1 tsp of oregano
Angel hair pasta or Goya’s fideo (about 1 cup)
Salt and pepper to taste or adobo for flavor
In a large pot boil 4 cups of water
Add sofrito, powdered chicken flavor, Sazon, tomato sauce and chicken.
Simmer on medium-low for about 45 minutes to an hour, just so that all the flavors combine.
