I started by boiling one whole chicken in chicken broth. I like to use my own broth, but this time I used a prepared box broth without msg added. While the chicken cooked, I chopped three cups of carrots and three cups of celery.
After boiling the chicken, I removed it from the broth and cut the chicken in half.
|Don't worry if the chicken isn't completely|
done. It will finish cooking in the soup. Of
course, mine was falling apart!
I put one half of the chicken in the freezer to use later and shredded the other half to use in the soup.
I strained the broth that remained after boiling the chicken to remove some of the fat. The broth and chicken were added back to the pot. Then I added in the vegetables and noodles.
I had to add a little more broth as the noodles cooked to keep the soup from being too thick. Water can be used in place of broth if you wish. You may want to add a little salt and pepper after adding either.
Look at that pure yumminess!!! As soon as the noodles and vegetables were done, I served it up and smiled as the children inhaled it!
What comfort foods are you looking forward to?
Until we meet again, may you be blessed!
