Listen up! You MUST try this recipe. It is chuck full of comfort and goodness. Creamy broth, hearty noodles, tender chicken and lots of veggies and flavor! My kids LOVE this soup and thank me every time I make it. And it’s full of veggies so that’s a mom win to me!
Start with some quality ingredients.
Chop up all the veggies.
Add a couple tablespoons of olive oil to a large pot and saute carrots, celery and onion on medium heat until tender, about 3-4 minutes, then add garlic and saute another minute. You don’t want to over cook the veggies since they will boil in the broth with the noodles later.
While the veggies saute I take care of the chicken. Get all that good chicken meat off the bones and chop it into chunks. Make sure to save all those yummy juices from the bottom of the container to add to your broth!
Next add the broth, lemon juice, juices from the chicken, Italian seasoning and the fresh rosemary. I used a 48 oz. box of broth and 6 cups of water and 2 tbsp. of better than bouillon. Have you tried better than bouillon? I really like it. Lots of flavor and I don’t have to unwrap those little cubes. 🙂
You just want to have 3 quarts or so of liquid. Bring to a boil and add the noodles. We found these noodles from Italy at our local grocery story and decided to give them a try. Yummy! Boil according to package directions until noodles are done.
Salt and pepper to taste. I use seasoned salt and pepper. Doesn’t that look delicious?! Well, it is.
