As we all know, chicken noodle soup is good for the soul, especially on those cold and rainy days. Well, rather than writing about it, I'd rather be eating it! Carrots, onion, celery ... this mirepoix mix is at the heart of the recipe.
1. Use clean cold water or freshly boiled water to re-hydrate the dehydrated items above.
2. When they are sufficiently plump, add the olive oil to a heavy pan on medium heat.
3. Add the onion and celery, cook for about 5 minutes.
4. Add the chicken stock, then add the garlic – crumbled finely, and the carrots, egg noodles, Italian herbs – and lest we forget, the chicken! Then cook an additional eight minutes.
*IF you need to add salt, do so, BUT be careful NOT to over-salt as the bouillon has salt in it.
There's something about chicken soup – doesn't matter what time of the year you have it – it soothes the soul, mends a cold, and fixes a broken heart!
Don't miss out on serving your soup with your own fresh baked bread! I love a slice of bread with cold butter or margarine on it. It's so
delicious when you dip it in the soup ... and it melts in your mouth!
This is a very easy meal and what I like is that there's very little clean-up in the kitchen because you're only using one saucepan :-)
