There used to be a Thai joint next to US Outdoor Store in Downtown Portland, OR that had $5.00 lunch that started with KILLER brothy chicken soup.
I've just about made a perfect facsimile of it with my leftover fried chicken. I always have two breasts leftover - who can eat that shit?
The secret to the soup is HEAVY celery.
I strip the breasts down to the bone, take those bones along with all the other bones that I already ate the meat offa, chop the bulb end ( make it big, like the size of your fist) off of a celery stalk, strip some leaves off and add them too - and throw it all in the stock pot with some sea salt and coarse cracked black pepper, mebbe some onion too. (My first attempt I sweated some garlic, onion, celery - but that TOTALLY blows it. Don't do it.)
Boil it 'til it tastes good, strain. Put the stock back on the fire and add some shredded breast meat. Add some thinly sliced celery, onions and carrot (julienne the carrots). Ladle into bowl and hit it with some ground black pepper.
