How to Make My Favorite Chicken Noodle Soup
- Start by heating the butter or oil over medium low heat in your soup pot, and cook the carrot and celery until they soften up, being careful not to let the butter brown.
- Then add the chicken pieces and 1 quart chicken stock. Add additional stock if necessary to cover. Cover pan and bring to a boil, then simmer about 45-60 minutes.
- Remove chicken from stock, and pull meat off bones and chop up about the same size as the carrots and celery. Return the meat to the pot. Taste and season with salt and pepper.
- Bring to a boil and add in the egg noodles. Cook until noodles are tender to your liking. May add more stock or bouillon if needed to get the right soup consistency. We like ours sort of thick.
