Chicken Noodle Soup Recipe

Chicken Noodle Soup Recipe

I lost my voice. So, this recipe is definitely needed today! Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup recipes can sometimes seem complex. You have to make the stock, simmer until flavors develop, and be careful not to over season. I’m making it easy without skimming on the goodness. 

I prefer white meat in my Chicken Noodle Soup. But, feel free to use whatever you like. The whole chicken can be used it you’re making a large batch. I use bone in chicken breasts. I always sear the skin side of the bird before making a stock. 

Mirepoix! I love saying that dang word! But, it’s golden in a stock! Especially a soup stock! Saute them down right after searing your chicken. 

This is 100% feel good, wellness soup! I don’t think a cold can survive and piping hot bowl of this stuff. It was just what my throat needed! Store this recipe. It’ll come in handy during Cold and Flu season. Stay well, my loves.

Happy Cooking,
