Mashed Potatoes with Chicken Bone Soup

Do not throw away the chicken bone yet after you are done with removing the chicken meat that you want to eat. You can make a very tasty chicken soup with those not so pretty looking bones and it is perfect for making mashed potatoes. Here is how:

  1. Put all the chicken bone or left over pieces of the chicken such as chicken neck and chicken organs into a large pot. Add in some water and bring it to a boil, then let it simmer for 30 minutes.
  2. Remove all the solid items and leave only the soup in the pot.
  3. Wash and cut 15 medium size potatoes into small pieces, cover the pot and cook at medium to low heat for about 15 minutes or until the potatoes are soft enough to be mashed.
  4. Add in 1 - 2 cups of milk, 1 tablespoon of garlic powder, 1 tablespoon of basil leaves, salt and pepper to taste. Stir for a few second, then turn off the heat. Mash the potatoes well.
  5. Serve with meat and vegetables of your choice. This makes about 5 servings.
