Semi Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup

 

This soup really is based on your own preference, so you will notice there are not a lot of measurements within this recipe.

Ingredients:

For Chicken Stock:

See chicken stock recipe in blog section, or use store brought broth (not recommended)

 

Soup Basics:

 

  • Baby or whole carrots- cut into bite sized pieces (as many or as little as you like)
  • Celery- cut into bite sized pieces (as many or as little as you like)
  • Leaves from celery- finely chopped
  • Medium cooking onion- Thinly sliced
  • Blend of white and dark meat chicken (I used some chicken I pulled off of the roasted chicken before I make the chicken stock, then also cut up some boneless skinless to add more white meat)- (as much or as little as you like)
  • Sea Salt to taste
  • Cracked Black Pepper to taste
  • Onion Powder to taste
  • Tony Chachere's to taste
  • 1 large package wide egg noodles (this is where the semi homemade comes in, because these are NOT homemade! ;) ;)

If needed, add water 1 cup and 1 chicken bullion cube at a time to produce more broth and/or flavor.- Recommend doing this PRIOR to cooking the noodles, as the noodles will get mushy if over cooked

 

Directions:

  1. If homemade stock is cold, bring to simmering boil before adding ingredients
  2. Add all veggies (carrots, celery and onion) to hot stock
  3. Add celery leaves, pepper, salt, onion powder and tony chachere's little bits at a time. (you can always add more later- but cannot take any out!)
  4. Boil for about 10 minutes and taste. If more seasoning is needed, add them a little bit at a time. If chicken flavor is not strong enough, add 1 cup hot water with 1 bullion cube and repeat until desired taste is met.
  5. Boil 5-10 more minutes (depending on how thick your veggies are, as you do not want them mushy) and add chicken to the pot (raw or cooked, it doesnt matter- add during this step)
  6. Boil 5 minutes
  7. Add egg noodles and boil as directed on back of package (usually 8-9 minutes)
  8. Serve hot and enjoy with either crackers or a nice baguette... OR BE LIKE ME AND EAT AS IS! ;)
