K.'s Comforting Chicken Noodle Soup

Submitted by: CURVES_N_CURLS

Introduction

Here's a soup I made up for a special someone. Very comforting for 'sickie babies', and very comforting for starving dieters, too! ;-) At under 100 calories per cup, it's a great nourishing snack. I make this in a large 16-quart stock pot. It makes 50 cups of soup - a VERY large batch! (I freeze it in little Rubbermaid 2-cup containers I bought at Wal*Mart, and then re-heat later.) Feel free to cut the recipe in half, making 25 cups which is still lots of soup. Here's a soup I made up for a special someone.

Ingredients

    * 3 tbsp. Olive Oil
    * 1/2 tsp. Ground Black Pepper
    * 6 Cloves Garlic, minced
    * 1 cup Red Onion, minced
    * 4 tsp. Thyme, dried
    * 4 Tetra Pak containers (each 32 oz.) Swanson Natural Goodness 33% Less Sodium Chicken Broth
    * 2 Tetra Pak containers (each 32 oz.) Swanson Certified Organic Vegetarian Vegetable Broth
    * 6 cups Water (tap)
    * 6 cups Carrots, sliced into 'coins'
    * 6 cups Celery, sliced into 'half moons'
    * 6 cups (dry) Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Whole Wheat Blend Extra Wide Noodle Style Yolk Free Pasta
    * 4 lbs. (raw) Boneless and Skinless Chicken Breasts, cubed
    * 4 cups Peas, frozen

Directions

1. In a LARGE (16-quart +) stock pot, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the pepper, garlic, onions, and thyme, and cook for a few minutes, until the onions and garlic caramelize a bit.
2. Add the chicken broth, vegetable broth, and water, and bring to a gentle boil over medium heat.
3. Add the celery, and cook (gently) for 3 to 4 minutes.
4. Add the carrots, and cook (gently) for another 5 minutes or so.
5. Add the chicken breast, and cook for 5 to 6 minutes.
6. Reduce the heat a bit more, and add the whole wheat noodles. Cook at a SIMMER ONLY for 5 - 7 minutes. DO NOT BOIL hard!!!
7. Remove the soup from the heat source, and add the frozen peas. Stir to heat through / cook. Do not return to heat. Either serve or cool at this point to avoid over-cooking the soup.
8. Makes 50 one-cup 'servings'. Freezes very well.
9. Enjoy! :)
