Although I don’t have any children (yet), my maternal instincts kicked in a long time ago. I just have this natural need, to take care of people. I often find myself mothering my friends even when they don’t ask for my help, like most mothers do. In this particular case, my friend called this week and said that he wasn’t feeling well, so I immediately went into mom mode and made him some chicken noodle soup. There’s something about homemade soup, when you’re sick, that just doesn’t compare to the store bought canned soup.
Whether your nursing a cold or just want to enjoy a hot bowl of soup, on a cool fall day, this soup is a sure to bring you comfort! Just remember to make it with love ❤️. Simple Chicken Noodle Soup
1 Large Carrot
1 whole onion
3 stalks of celery
2 Chicken Breasts
1 bag of egg noodles
2 cubes of chicken bouillon or season of your choice
4 cups of water
50 ounces of natural chicken broth (6 1/4 cups)
In a large pot, bring water to a boil and place both chicken breasts in the water. Let chicken cook for 10 minutes or until there is no pink. When your chicken is done remove from water and set aside.
Chop your carrots, celery, and onion and saute in some olive oil until soft.
After your chicken has had time to cool. Shred your chicken with your hands or a knife.
Now that your veggies and chicken are cooked. Add the chicken broth to the water used to boil your chicken broth and bring to a boil.
Add your chicken, veggies, seasonings and noodles to the broth and let it boil until the noodles are cooked.
While it cooks add more season and water as you see fit.
Once your soup is done, top it with some fresh chopped parsley or cilantro.
