Hot steaming bowl of nourishing soup...yummy goodness!
The pot of soup ready for the noodles to be added in...
Recently my friend from Bible School days shared this recipe with me ~ thanks Heather! Specific measurements weren't provided ~ just the "secret" ingredients...below you will see what I did with that info! Since she shared it with me I have made it...over and over again! One last thing...be sure to have homemade stock on hand...it makes all the difference!!
Chicken Noodle Soup
12 cups Homemade chicken stock
2 tsp. Garlic powder (or use fresh cloves ~ finely minced)
2 tsp. Italian seasoning (secret ingredient)
1 Tbsp Sea Salt (less if you use bouillon cubes)
3 large Carrots ~ finely chopped
3 stalks Celery ~ finely chopped
1 Onion ~ minced
2 to 3 cups diced Chicken Meat (cooked) ~ Approximately half the meat from a four pound chicken.
Fry onions and celery in a small amount of oil (I use olive oil) in the bottom of your stock pot. When the onions are turning translucent add in remaining ingredients and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, for about 20 minutes (until vegetables are tender). Add in half a package of fine egg noodles (375 gram size...that would be about 2 cups of noodles) and simmer for 5 minutes longer.
~This is as easy as it can get and yet it gets rave reviews...at least that's the story around here!~
