Chicken Noodle Soup

Yipee finally starting to feel better last week was rough but we all have weeks like that :-), one high point was making a big pot of chicken noodle soup and living off it!, thanks Heather also known as Girlichef for sharing your wonderful recipe. Its a great recipe full of flavor, I cheated a little and used store bought stock but you will find the first step of boiling the chicken with bones adds a great depth of flavor.

Chicken Noodle soup Inspired by Girlichef


  • 4lb of bone in chicken, I used leg quarters
  • one gallon of chicken stock 
  • a few sprigs of fresh thyme and parsley
  • 2 bay leaves 
  • a little fresh grated ginger
  • 5 cloves of garlic
  • 4 celery stalks chopped
  • 4 big carrots chopped
  • about a cup of extra wide noodles

  1. add the chicken and first 6 ingredients to the stock/save and boil for about 25 minutes, allow it to cool then remove chicken from the bone and strain the broth
  2. add the broth back to the pot with the vegetables and chicken and simmer for a further 20-25 minutes and serve. 
  3. This soup makes wonderful leftovers :-)

Have a great start to your week all, we are heading the the parks !! he he
