Remember that roast chicken I made last Thursday? Well we had half of it leftover still this past weekend. I needed to do something with it, and I found a way to do it when I wasn't feeling so hot on Saturday and Sunday.
Nothing makes me feel better when I have a cold or sore throat than a big pot of chicken noodle soup. My mom makes really good soup, and I couldn't think of anything else to eat but a bowl of something of that genre. So here is the recipe I came up with. While basic and not the most creative or amazing, it did the trick and I think it will for you, too. Enjoy.
Chicken Noodle Soup
about half a chicken, pulled from the bone and diced (you can roast your own from the recipe here, or you can get a rotisserie chicken, or you can poach a couple of chicken breasts)
4 stalks of celery, chopped
3 carrots, peeled and sliced or chopped
1 onion, chopped finely
3 cans of chicken broth, or 6 cups (you could use stock here too)
2 c water
1/2 a bag of egg noodles
Saute veggies in a bit of olive oil and cook til tender. Add chicken and then add broth, stir. Bring to boil and then reduce to a simmer, and cook for 15 minutes. Add your noodles and cook til tender. Serve with bread and butter on the side.
