Hurry Up I Don't Feel Good Chicken Noodle Soup
For the first time in about 11 days now I am finally feeling like I'm getting over this flu I've had. It has been awful! One of the very best things when you're not feeling well is homemade chicken noodle soup, but it's not really something you feel like making when you're sick. Well, I was desperate to have my homemade soup the other day, so I found the strength to get out of bed and go make it. While I was making it I thought I'd snap a couple pictures to share my quick and delicious recipe with you. I made this soup in under 30 minutes.
If you don't already always have these items on hand, then you should, as they can be useful for any number of recipes.
2 cups or so of cooked chicken - I always have rotisserie chicken on hand, fresh or picked and frozen. Or when I grill chicken I make extra, slice it and freeze it so I always have it.
1/2 of a large onion, diced
3 stalks of celery, diced
3 carrots, sliced
8 cups chicken broth
1/2 tsp. dried thyme
1/2 tsp. poultry seasoning
1 Tbsp. fresh parsley
Kosher salt and pepper
1 cup egg noodles or pasta of your choice
2 Tbsp. olive oil
1 Tbsp. butter
1 Tbsp. all purpose flour
In a large, heavy bottomed pot heat the olive oil and butter over medium heat just until the butter is melted. Add the onions, celery, carrots, and some salt. Stir and saute over medium heat for about 10 minutes. Sprinkle the flour over the vegetables and stir to coat them. Cook for about a minute. Add 2 cups of the chicken broth and stir to incorporate the flour coating with the broth. Add the remaining 6 cups of chicken broth. Add the chicken, egg noodles, poultry seasoning, thyme, salt and pepper. Stir to combine. Increase heat to high to get the soup just to a boil. Once boiling, reduce to medium high and continue to cook until the noodles are done, about 7-8 minutes. Add the parsley and stir to combine.
That's it. Now just serve and enjoy and feel better. :)
Until next time...
