Chicken Noodle Soup

Mommy’s Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup” has become a staple at the Martin Residence. It’s quick, easy, and always tastes delicious. The perfect comfort food.

THE INGREDIENTS
  • 4 c chicken broth (left over juices from roasting a whole chicken)

  • 2 c chopped cooked chicken pieces

  • 4 tsp Himalayan sea salt

  • 2 TBSP butter or coconut oil

  • 5 medium carrots

  • 1/2 bag of frozen organic peas

  • 1 package of noodles of your choice

DIRECTIONS
  1. Preheat large stockpot on med-high heat on the stovetop.

  2. Add 2 tablespoons of butter.

  3. Add minced garlic, onions, and celery to melted butter and seer until translucent.

  4. Add salt, cayenne, chilli, turmeric, ginger, and parsley.

  5. Add chopped chicken, carrots, peas, chicken broth, and 4 cups of water. Boil on medium-low heat until carrots are tender.

  6. Meanwhile, in a separate pot, bring water to a boil and cook noodles until al dente.

  7. Drain water from the noodles, then add them to the rest of the chicken soup.

This is an easy recipe to double or triple to feed a bigger crew or have lots of leftovers. I do like to make more,  but I refrain from adding the noodles before canning or freezing. Then, when I open a can of the leftovers I add fresh noodles so they don't go mushy when canned or frozen.
