Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup



Little Red was home sick today with a fever and sore throat. Between Barbie movies, I figured she could use some TLC. As she knows when she is sick, I'll make or order whatever her heart (stomach) desires. She requested chicken noodle soup.


To start, I boiled skinless chicken tenders for 25 minutes, making them easy to shred with my fingers. I flavored the water with garlic powder, onion powder, and a pinch of salt while the chicken boiled.





In a pot, sautee 3 medium carrots (sliced), 4 celery stalks (sliced), a medium onion diced, and minced garlic in a tablespoon of butter.


Add two quarts of chicken stock. Season with: garlic powder, onion powder, poultry seasoning, bay leaves, and thyme to taste. Let simmer for 10- 15 minutes. Add the shredded chicken and wide egg noodles and continue to cook until the noodles are thoroughly cooked, about 9 minutes.





Serve with crackers and enjoy! Here's to fighting off all of the colds the season brings!

    1. Thanks so much! I love chicken noodle soup, especially homemade. But, its always easier (for me at least) when the broth is pre-made!
