I love making chicken noodle soup especially since I live in the mountains and it’s the perfect food for cold weather. And I love that there is always a lot left over. This recipe is so easy, it’s almost embarrassing but I’m going to share it anyway. Some people don’t like to cook but if they know it’s a simple recipe, they are willing to give it a shot. And it feels good to make something homemade- like you’ve really accomplished something.
What You Will Need
1. Half chicken breasts
2. Carrots (I buy the small bag of pre-chopped)
3. Celery (one package is enough)
4. Noodles (you can use the egg noodles or I like the rotini type-1 box)
5. Wild Rice (I like Uncle Ben’s Ready Rice)
6. Seasoning (I use 3 cubes of chicken bouillon)
Wash the carrots and celery and dice them up. This is the only hassle of the recipe. While I’m doing this, I heat up two pots of water on the stove.
Wash the chicken and place in one pot. Put the carrots and celery in the other pot. I boil the chicken for a good hour. You want it to cook to the point it’s falling off the bone. I cook the carrots and celery about a half hour. Boil the noodles and microwave the rice.
Once everything is done, chop up the chicken and combine in one pot. Add your seasoning (as I said, I use 3 cubes of chicken bouillon). Stir it up and let is simmer. Cut up some sourdough bread and serve.
