Today I made comforting bowl of hearty soup - Chicken Noodle Soup. Perfect for cold weather, and especially good if you are fighting off a cold or flu. There are probably as many ways of making chicken noodle soup as there are moms who make it.
Try this easy chicken noodle soup recipe that comes together in just 25 minutes. My version of the ultimate feel-good food, Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup is full of vegetables like carrots, celery, and onions. Slowly cooking a chicken, fragrant herbs, and fresh vegetables in chicken broth rather than water imparts a rich flavor to this soup.
The key is the stock, homemade from bones. The iron rich gelatin from the bones is good for you, and one of the reasons why homemade chicken stock is so beneficial.
If you don’t already have homemade chicken stock, the following is a recipe for making the entire soup from scratch
1 medium onion, chopped
3 garlic cloves, minced
2 medium carrots, cut into 1/2-inch-thick slices
2 celery, halved lengthwise, and cut into 1/2-inch-thick slices
1 bay leaf
2 quarts chicken stock,
8 ounces dried egg noodles
1 1/2 cups shredded cooked chicken
salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 handful fresh parsley, finely chopped
