Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup Recipe

soupSo, its fall and what is better in fall than home made soup?! I love soup and making your own is a way to make sure you are limiting salt and other preservatives they put in the canned stuff!

I made beer butt chicken the other day, which is really one of my favorite things to make and its soooo easy! I will post the recipe for that next time I make it. Anyway, the point I was getting to is that I always throw out the carcus and it seems like such a waste! So, why not make some chicken noodle soup?!?! Here is how I did it:

    Chicken Carcus with leftover meat left on (Or, 3 chicken breasts boiled and shredded)

  • 3-4 Carrots chopped into slices
  • 4-5 Stalks of celery chopped into slices
  • 1/2 yellow onion chopped into small peices

FullSizeRender-6Directions:

  • First you will want to boil your chicken carcus in the chicken stalk & water
  • While this is boiling you will chop all your veggies
  • Boil the chicken for an hour and then take out the carcus and pick off all the meat that is leftover
  • At this point I added a bit more water – you can use your discretion on this…you can also add more stalk
  • Add in the spices, onion and boil for 10 minutes before adding the carrots and celery and boil for 10 more minutes
  • Add the noodles and chicken back into the mix and simmer on low for about 20-30 minutes
  • Enjoy!

**This make quite a bit of soup…I ladled the the soup into small ziplock bags and loaded them into a larger ziplock to freeze for later, but it would be great for a party or a large family gathering**
