CHICKEN NOODLE SOUP for the Soul

As promised in my last post, I’m sharing my recipe for homemade Chicken Noodle Soup.  I usually make soup the day after I have roasted a whole chicken for dinner, which I did on Thursday.  Hence I made soup on Friday…. here’s my recipe:

First I take all the meat off of the bones of the cooked chicken and save any leftovers for soup, Chicken sandwiches, chicken salad sandwiches, or hot chicken sandwiches.

Then I put all the bones in a large pot and add at least 6-10 cups of water plus 1-2 tablespoons of vinegar and put it on the stove to simmer for 2-4 hours.  The vinegar helps bring out the “good stuff” from the marrow.   I usually put mine on the wood cookstove to simmer for the afternoon.

Boiling Chicken Bones

After boiling the bones, drain.  If there is alot of stock just use the generous amount of ingredients below.  The chicken ‘stock’ is now ready for :

* 1-2 handfuls of egg noodles (I personally like Lancia).  You could probably use cooked rice too I suppose, but don’t cook it to death or it will get mushy and fall apart…..

* 1 – 1  1/2 teaspoon salt

* 1 teaspoon or so of “Mrs. Dash”  or other non-salt combination of herbs

*  1 tablespoon of dried or fresh (use abit more)  parsley

*  pieces of cubed cooked chicken.

You can also add any cooked veggies that suit you…..  I don’t for this soup.

Simmer until the noodles are soft, then it’s ready to eat or store in a glass bottle in the fridge.  This soup makes a quick, great lunch for days afterwards.

I’ve also used the chicken stock to replace the water when cooking rice.  With some added Mrs. Dash, it’s a pretty tasty side dish.

My friend Della calls my Chicken Noodle Soup “magic soup” for it’s perceived medicinal properties when you are sick….

Enjoy!
