Melissa's Cuisine: Chicken Noodle Soup with Homemade Noodles

Chicken Noodle Soup with Homemade Noodles

When I think of comfort food, one of the first things I think of is homemade chicken noodle soup.  It's the perfect food to enjoy during a cold winter day. 

This month's Crazy Cooking Challenge was to find the Ultimate Chicken Noodle Soup recipe.  I think I've hit the jackpot with this one!  This is a really basic soup, just chicken, noodles, carrots, and broth.  I served it with some French bread, and it made for a delicious dinner.

I found this recipe on Laura's blog, Heavenly Homemakers.  She has so many recipes on her site that are both good for you and delicious.  I really encourage you to stop by and visit her!  In her original recipe, she suggests making your own chicken broth, but because I was using chicken breasts, not a whole chicken, I used store-bought broth.  I used the whole wheat noodle recipe that I shared yesterday and Mike and I both loved this recipe.

Chicken Noodle Soup with Homemade Noodles

Serves 8

You will need:
8 cups chicken broth (homemade or store bought)
3 carrots
1 recipe whole wheat homemade noodles
2 cups cooked chicken, diced
sea salt

1.  Peel and chop carrots into bite-sized pieces.

2.  Pour broth and carrots into a large pot.  Bring to a boil and boil for 5 minutes.

3.  Add in chicken and noodles. Salt as needed.

4.  Simmer soup for 15-20 minutes, until noodles are fat and tender.

  2. I've made homemade chicken noodle soup so many times, but I've never made noodles for soup. I'm going to have to remedy that soon. Happy CCC!
