This old-fashioned chicken noodle soup is the best we have ever tasted. It is also a snap to make with the ingredients you have right in your own pantry. Great served with grilled golden brown swiss cheese sandwiches on French bread. This recipe makes a lot. Freeze some and enjoy it later on! Happy Cooking!

How to Make BONNIE'S GRANDMA'S CHICKEN NOODLE SOUP

Step-by-Step

  1. DAY BEFORE
    Boil the drumsticks in the water until done. Save the water to make the soup. Refrigerate.
  2. THE NEXT DAY...
    PREPARE GRANDMA'S NOODLES
    (These are NOT the regular wide curly kind) Follow the instructions on the package that say to slit the plastic and microwave 1 minute. Remove and separate the noodles and spread them out on a cookie sheet.
  3. MAKE THE SOUP
    Remove skin and bones from the drumsticks and discard. Save the chicken and the broth. Chop the onions, celery and carrots and saute in a large dutch oven in a little olive oil. When the vegetables are tender, add the minced garlic and stir a couple of times. Add the chicken stock, chicken granules, pepper, marjoram,and the chicken to the pot. Simmer covered over low heat until the vegetables are done. Add Grandma's noodles and bring soup to a low boil and cook until noodles are tender and to your preference. Add frozen peas. Check seasoning. Cook until peas are done.
  4. COOK'S TIP
    Do you like a lot of broth or a little broth in your soup? If you don't have enough broth to suit you, you can add a can of chicken broth,a teaspoon of chicken granules, a half can of water and a teaspoon of marjoram and add it to the broth to thin it.
