Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup

Colin Callan


Roast Chicken Broth
Roast a chicken as normal, remove all the meat and skin and use or set aside. Take the bones and the skin and put back into the roasting tray with 1 or 2 garlic cloves, a diced onion, a stick of diced celery, a tablespoon of ketchup and 4 pints of water. Bring up to a slow simmer and cook for 2 to 3 hours. Keep and eye on it and top back up with more water as it simmers and evaporates. Strain broth through a sieve and remove and discard the bones, meat and vegetables.

Try and buy good quality egg noodles, wide flat ones are best.
