I have a sick child today. Nothing serious, just a cold so I decided to make chicken noodle soup. I usually make this easy chicken soup recipe, but wanted the added benefits of bone broth so I used whole bone-in chicken pieces. I basically followed my Turkey Noodle Soup recipe using bone-in chicken instead.
After some chicken noodle soup, lots of fluids and rest my little guy will be back to good health in no time.
1 onion diced
3 cloves garlic minced
1 stalk celery diced
2 T. butter
14 C. water
6 t. chicken base or bouillon
1 chicken carcass or 3-4 bone-in chicken pieces, skin removed
1 t. salt
1 t. Cajun or Creole seasoning
Fresh ground pepper
1 16 oz. bag frozen peas and carrots
12-16 oz. Amish home-style egg noodles
1. In a large pot, sauté onion, garlic and celery in butter until tender and slightly caramelized.
2. Add water, chicken base, chicken carcass or pieces, salt and Cajun seasoning. You can add a little fresh ground pepper to taste. Cover and cook on low for 1 1/2 to 2 hours.
3. Remove carcass or chicken pieces from the pot and pull meat off the bones with a knife and a fork. Cut up the meat and return it to the pot. Add frozen peas and carrots and bring pot to a low boil.
4. Add noodles and continue to cook uncovered until noodles are tender. (Check noodle package for cooking time.)
