Does it get anymore comforting than this on a rainy, cold fall day?
so much to be thankful for...like the warmth of a home :)
Mom's Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup
6C Watkins chicken broth
2-3 large leeks (or onions), diced
1 head of celery, chopped, leaves and all
4C carrots sliced
24oz Reames egg noodles
(these are what my Mom uses, you can find them in the freezer aisle...there are a few whole wheat verions but I wanted to make it has she does...they are yummy)
4-5C chicken breast, cooked, cubed...you could use your leftover turkey!
pinch of sugar
salt and pepper to taste
Bring chicken broth and water to a boil in a large stockpot.
Add leeks, celery, and carrots. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, covered, 15-20 minutes. Add egg noodles and allow to simmer 15 more minutes or until noodles are cooked. Add chicken and heat 5 minutes. Add pinch of sugar. Season with salt and pepper to taste, add parsley.
Serve a batch and freeze a batch for later!
