As a child, anytime I wasn’t feeling well I remember my momma making Chicken Noodle Soup.
She would always say, “This will make you feel better”.
Now, I don’t know how much of that statement was true, but I do know that I always felt better. I’m pretty sure it had more to do with my momma’s love then the soup. But of course, I believe she made everything with love.
I love that Chicken Noodle Soup is still a classic for my family. A couple weeks ago my friend Tessa was sick with a cold.
Don’t you just hate summer colds?
Anyway, when I asked her what I could do to make her feel better she automatically asked me to make the classic, so I thought “why not”.
Perfect “get better” meal.
She absolutely loves me to make her this soup when she is sick. Believe me, I have no secret ingredient, it truly is a classic.
What you need:
3 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 cup of sliced carrots (or baby carrots)
1 medium yellow diced onion
1/4 cup diced celery
32 oz chicken stock
16 oz egg noodles
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
1tsp chicken seasoning (for color and a pop if flavor)
1 tsp of cumin
What to do:
1) Boil chicken with celery, carrots and onion til cooked throughly in a stock pot with appx 6 cups of water.
2) Remove chicken from stock pot and shred or dice into cubes.
3) Add chicken back to pot and pour in chicken stock.
4) Stir in your chicken seasoning, st, pepper and cumin.
5) Add your egg noodles to your pot and cook til slightly tender.
6) Enjoy for yourself, or in my case for a sick friend!
I hope you enjoy this classic in your home as much as I did as a child and children still do!
Don’t you just love childhood memories?
