Easiest Ever "Homemade" Chicken Soup
Updated: Jul 6
All these years of slaving over a hot stove, skimming scum off from chicken, alas, the same great taste (actually better) can be made in less than :20 minutes. A lot of cheating, but here goes!
Makes 3-4 heaping servings
2 cups chicken broth
1 ½ cups water
Bring to a boil
Mix in 1 tsp chicken bouillon paste (from the jar)
Add 2 celery stalks, diced to broth
Add 10 baby carrots, sliced to broth
Add 10 long green beans, sliced to broth
Add 1 tsp of chopped garlic (I use pre-chopped garlic in the jar)
Add ¼-1/2 package of wide egg noodles
Turn heat down slightly so it doesn’t overflow.
Add in ¼ onion (the whole ¼, it falls apart while cooking)
Sprinkle in white pepper, black pepper, salt (to taste) and a pinch of sugar
Lastly, chop up prepared chicken breast and add to pot
Simmer :5 minutes.
Be careful to not let it boil too long or you will lose all the great broth. I like mine that way, but most people want the soup to go with it!
And my house smelled just like my grandmother’s kitchen in no time!
