Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup

23 02 2011

With a house full of sick children and a sick husband I thought it would be a great time to give homemade chicken noodle soup a try.  I had tried a recipe a few years back and wasn’t to thrilled with it.  This recipe however is amazing.  I especially like how you puree the onion and add that to the soup.  It gave it a great flavor without the bits of onion in the soup.  A great recipe for the sick or just to keep warm on a cold day.  Hope you enjoy!


Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup

~ 6 cups water

~ 4 chicken breasts

~ 1 tsp. salt

~ 1 onion

~ 1 cup of thinly sliced carrots

~ 2 Tbsp. chicken bouillon granules

~ 1/2 cup finely diced celery (optional)

~ 2/3’s bag of Egg noodles


1. In a large stock pot combine water, chicken and salt. Cover and bring to a boil then reduce and simmer for 20-25 minutes or until chicken is done. Remove chicken and cut into bite sized pieces.  Strain the reaming chicken broth and put back into the stock pot.

2. Peel onion and chop into chunks. Combine 1/2 cup of water and onion in a food processor or blender and puree.  Add to the chicken broth.

3. Add carrots, chicken granules and celery. Bring to a boil, then add egg noodles. Cook the noodles until done about 15-20 minutes. Once the noodles are done add the chicken and heat until warm. If you need more liquid add either chicken broth or water and season with more chicken bouillon granules, salt and pepper to taste.
