This recipe is from a friend of mine. It’s not written super precisely, because soups is just meant to be tossed together, right? Only Grandma’s make soups perfectly because of their years of experience. 😉  It’s a delicious soup, and if you want to learn to make it from scratch, here is the recipe for you! I often make this when we feel a bit sick. Nothing better than made-from-scratch chicken noodle soup!

Chicken Noodle Soup


1. Simmer one whole chicken, or chicken parts, in a 6-quart pot for 1-2 hours, with spices. Or,
2. Simmer bones, skin, etc from leftover roast chicken, in a 6-quart pot for 1-2 hours, with spices.

Add spices to simmering chicken:
1 cut up onion
2 Tbsp parsley
3 large bay leaves
1 tsp pepper
2-3 Tbsp salt

Once it’s done simmering, pour soup into another pot using a colander to catch all bones. Put broth and spices back into your soup-pot and any meat you want in it.

2-3 cups grated carrots
1-2 cups peas
1-2 cups noodles

Simmer for 15 minutes until noodles are cooked. Tastes great with fresh bread or biscuits on the side!
