I've always wanted to try making my own chicken noodle soup. It's the epitome of comfort food for colds, nostalgia for home, and in my case, being snowed in again. I had a cake deliver this morning, so I planned my day to drive to the office afterwards. After what took triple the time to get to my cake destination, I decided to head back home. Thank goodness I did, I was stuck going 15-20 mph on snowy backroads (although absolutely beautiful) and then completely stopped in front of my house because so many cars were stuck on the road.
Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup (serves up to four):
-Organic Chicken Breast (3 large pieces)
-Celery (4 large stalks)
-Carrots (3-4 medium)
-Onion (1 medium)
-Bay leaves (4 dry leaves)
-Chicken Stock (5 cups)
-Bowtie Pasta (I used this instead of egg noodles)
I plan on trying to make my own chicken stock in the near future, but for today's purpose of making a quick dish I used what I could :)
example from Serious Eats, refer to steps 6-8! These "faux tourne" carrot pieces are much more appealing in your dishes.
P.S. Here's a photo of the cake I delivered this morning! Loved the circus theme :)
Until next time :)
