I made Mom's Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup today. It's so simple and perfect on a cloudy, rainy day. From the looks of things, I may have overdone the noodles. Is that a bad thing? Nah!
MOM'S HOMEMADE CHICKEN NOODLE SOUP
4-6 chicken breasts
Boil in a small amount of water until tender. Remove meat to cool and cube. Strain broth to make clear, add 2-3 cans of chicken broth. I usually use the great big one. This time I cut up the chicken breasts first, then boiled in water. You could also boil in broth and omit water.
Add to broth:
2 medium onions, chopped
2-3 celery stalks, sliced
2-3 large carrots, sliced or chopped
Boil vegetables until tender then return chicken and large package of wide noodles. Cook until noodles are tender and simmer for a short time. Add 1-2 cans of Cream of Chicken soup for a creamier broth. (I don't usually do this) This recipe makes a very large amount of soup. I halved everything tonight.
