Better Than Canned – Quick Chicken Noodle Soup

Ingredients

  • 2 chicken breasts diced up
  • 8 cups chicken stock or broth store bought is fine
  • 2 carrots diced
  • 3 celery stalks you can include the leafy parts, they look pretty in the soup, diced
  • 1 onion diced
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 1 cup dry egg noodles
  • 1 tbsp garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp onion powder
  • 3 stems of thyme
  • a handful of parsley stems
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1-2 tbsp Better than Bouillion depending on flavor
  • 1 tbsp olive oil

Instructions

  • First, dice your onion, carrots and celery.
  • Add them all to a large pot with a little bit of olive oil. Sweat on medium heat until fragrant and onions are translucent but not browned. Season with salt, pepper, garlic and onion powder.
  • Add in some herbs of your choice. I prefer parsley and thyme.
  • Get your anger out and smash some garlic and throw it into the soup party. Let cook for 3-5 minutes. Add in the chicken stock or broth (store bought is just fine) and bring up to a boil. If you are using raw chicken, you want to add it in now. I prefer chicken breast just because it is easier to cut up.
  • Once the chicken soup is simmering. Dice up your chicken breasts and add to the pot. I happened to have some leftover roasted chicken breasts on hand.
  • While all the soup flavors merry, (about 15-20 minutes) cook up some egg noodles. I planned on freezing half the soup so I did not add them into the soup. If you are planning to eat this immediately without any leftovers, just add in the noodles now and bring up the soup to a boil.
  • Now, my secret ingredient, Better Than Bouillion. Why? Because it's awesome. It gives it that yellowy color for one. 2 it's a concentrated chicken stock so it amplifies your flavor. Think of it as the ultimate flavor booster. But be careful, add it a tablespoon at a time and mix well. Taste after each tablespoon for flavor.
  • Remove the thyme stems.
  • Chop up some parsley to make it look all fresh and pretty.
  • If you started with raw chicken, take it out now and dice it up.
  • Serve piping hot in bowls or soup mugs to warm up the cold ones!
