Cozy Chicken Soup

Chicken Noodle Soup
     What is more American, or should I say more home-cooked American, than good old fashioned Chicken Noodle Soup? We all have that favorite one. Whether it is simply the one you buy in the can at your local grocery store, or whether you were lucky enough to have a mother who made it from scratch. It really is one of the easiest things to prepare. Just throw all ingredients in a stock pot of water or broth, turn on heat, and viola, you have chicken noodle soup. Mine is simple, delicious, and thanks to a good friend of mine, has a special something in it that you wouldn't think of adding to chicken soup. Lemon juice adds a special spark and flavor inhancer that you wouldn't expect to find in a hearty soup. I even used homemade noodles which make everything better. Chicken Noodle Soup.
  • 2 large boneless chicken breasts
  • 2 32 oz boxes of chicken stock
  • 32 oz water
  • 1/2 white onion diced
  • 2 celery stalks with leaves diced
  • 1 cup diced carrot
  • Pinch of rosemary
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • Noodles of choice
  • Salt/pepper

1. In a large stock pot or soup pot pour in the chicken stock and water. Add diced onion, diced celery, carrots, Rosemary, and chicken breasts. Bring to a boil and let simmer for about 25 minutes.

2. Salt and pepper to taste. Add in lemon juice and stir in noodles. Let cook until noodles are tender and serve.

     See how simple this is. Two steps and that is all. A delicious and hearty soup that will warm up any cold winter or fall night for you and your family. Since I used fresh pasta I had to add an additional step and cook the noodles in a separate pot due to all the starch from the flour.
