Some may consider it an old wives tale….that when you are sick its to bed and break out the chicken noodle soup….but its one of those things that just seems to sound good when nothing else does…. So in light on the kid having head colds and my sinuses having a grand party – I thought it would be fitting to share a Chicken noodle soup recipe….
Chicken Noodle Soup
4 cups chopped, cooked chicken meat
1 cup chopped celery
1/4 cup chopped carrots
1/4 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup butter
8 ounces egg noodles
12 cups water
9 cubes chicken bouillon
1/2 teaspoon dried marjoram
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 bay leaf
1 tablespoon dried parsley
|1.||In a large stock pot, saute celery and onion in butter or margarine.|
|2.||Add chicken, carrots, water, bouillon cubes, marjoram, black pepper, bay leaf, and parsley. Simmer for 30 minutes.|
|3.||Add noodles, and simmer for 10 more minutes.
Please note this is a fairly general soup recipe…I always have to add a little of this and that – I love a little garlic and herb added to mine…I always use more veggies…and I use a chicken base – which is a lot different then using bouillon cubes…. So you can play with it and make it your own family favorite!!!
