There are a million ways to make chicken noodle soup. We found this way to be quite easy. Now, you can start with raw chicken and cover with water and cook and make your own chicken broth for your soup or you can roast an entire chicken and use the meat from that if you already have some chicken stock or broth. You can even be really lazy and buy some chicken broth and a whole roasted chicken and throw all of it together. Whichever way you choose, this soup will help fight off winter colds. Give it a try! Don’t be a yellow bellied, well, chicken.
This is all done in one pot!
1. Take your already roasted chicken and pull all the meat off the bones and chop up into bite sized pieces. Discard the skin.
2. Cut your celery, carrots and onion into bite-sized pieces.
3. Mince your garlic
4. Turn your heat on your soup pot and add your fat/oil about 2 tablespoons.
5. Add your vegetables bay leaf and thyme and cook (don’t brown them so keep your heat moderate).
6. Add your broth or stock and bring to a boil then back down to a simmer for about 15 minutes.
7. Add your noodles and cook until soft (also throw in your already roasted chicken at this time to heat up if you went that route).
7. Remove your bay leaf and thyme. You can use a bouquet garni for this or a sachet d’epices for easy removal.
8. Serve with fresh parsley and you can add dill or other fresh herbs and a squeeze of lemon to brighten this dish up!
