When I make Chicken Noodle Soup, I get serious about it. I don't make some weak broth that has a couple of pieces of chicken floating around in it and if you're lucky a noodle or two. My Chicken Noodle Soup is a hearty bowl of goodness. It's jam-packed with chicken, egg noodles and vegetables. It's great for when you're feeling under the weather or just when you need some good old comfort food. My Chicken Noodle Soup is a beast to be reckoned with it. Try it out and you'll see for yourself.

Ingredients:

A whole rotisserie chicken
3 carrots sliced
3 celery stalks with hearts sliced
1/2 onion sliced
1 leek halved and sliced
2-3 cups of egg noodles
9-10 cups of broth
Chopped dill for garnish or flavoring (optional)

Makes 6 servings



Take your rotisserie chicken, remove all the skin and bones and break up the meat into chunks. Set aside.




Heat the broth in a large soup pot and bring to a boil. While the broth is heating up, prep your veggies. Lower heat to low-medium and add your veggies for 3-4 minutes.



Add your egg noodles to the pot and cook for 4 minutes on medium heat. Then add the chicken pieces in to the pot and continue cooking for 4 more minutes or until the egg noodles are cooked.



Serve hot with a bit of chopped dill on top. This soup is really good with oyster crackers.

If you are making this soup in advance, do NOT cook the egg noodles in the soup. The noodles will continue to absorb the liquid around it long after the cooking is done. This doesn't do well with leftovers either. If you want to save the soup for another day or have leftovers, cook the egg noodles separately and add them individually to bowls. That way when you reheat leftovers, you can just make more egg noodles separately.

Yum! I will definitely try this! Adding dill stands out. I don't think I have tried dill with chicken ever.

Those plastic containers from IKEA rock by the way! I use them all the time.
