Old Fashioned Chicken Noodle SoupSubmitted by: BLSCT123
IntroductionChicken soup the way my old German aunt makes it. The chicken needs to have the skin and fat on it to give it taste. By removing the fat you remove the flavour. Chicken soup the way my old German aunt makes it. The chicken needs to have the skin and fat on it to give it taste. By removing the fat you remove the flavour.
4 Chicken pieces - bone in, skin on
1 stick celery - chopped
1 carrot - chopped
1/2 medium onion - chopped
1 cup of water to start - add additional water as needed.
Garlic powder, pepper and seasoning salt to taste.
Handful of whole wheat broad or soup noodles
Add a small amount of olive oil to the bottom of your soup pot.
Add onions and saute for a couple of minutes.
Season chicken with garlic powder, seasoning salt and pepper. Place chicken in pot and saute until slightly browned. I used chicken thighs because they are really cheap. Also, the dark meat and bones provide more flavour.
Add 1 cup of water, celery and carrot.
Cover and reduce heat. Simmer for 45 minutes.
Add noodles. Simmer for another 10 minutes.
If you prefer you can remove the chicken pieces from the soup, shred the chicken from the bones and return it to the soup. In my family we just leave the pieces whole.
