Well it has happened, the leaves have begun to morph into the vibrant colors of fall. The air is crisp and drags with it the aroma of burnt leaves and cold nights. It is the start of soup season, hoodies, bonfires and pumpkin everything. So what’s more appropriate then some Chicken Noodle Soup? Nothing could remind me more of fall and comfort then this dish. It is the first dish I make this time of year that signals a changing of seasons, to my favorite time of year: fall. So please pull up a pot, grab your chicken, and cut your veggies with a fall classic.
Enjoy the Chicken Noodle Soup:-)
- gluten free pasta
- 2-3 pounds of Chicken cut up
- stalk of celery
- 5 large carrots (feel free to add as many as you like)
- Italian seasoning
The Creation of Chicken Noodle Soup
- Fill a large pot with water and place on the stove. Add uncooked chicken into the pot of water. Turn the stove on. Add salt, pepper and Italian seasoning to the water. Boil until the chicken is cooked all the way through. In doing this you are also creating the chicken stock that will sever as the base of the soup.
- Chop up celery, carrots and onions. My personal opinion is the more the better, but add as much as you like.
- (If there are bones in the chicken) Remove chicken from pot and place on a plate to cool. When the chicken is cool enough to handle, start pulling the chicken off the bone. Continue doing this until all the chicken is removed.
- Add the chicken, celery, carrots and onions back into the pot with the chicken broth.
- Let this cook on low for 3-5 hours, remember the longer it cooks the deeper the flavors get.
- 20-30 before you would like to eat, fill another pot with water. Salt the water and bring to a boil.
- When the water boils add in the pasta. Cook the pasta until it is al dente.
- Drain the pasta and add some chicken stock from the soup pot to the bowl of pasta to keep it moist.
- Plate by adding the pasta to the bottom of a bowl and then adding soup.
- This dish really is so easy a kid could do it, so serve up some Chicken Noodle Soup and enjoy the beautiful colors fall has to offer.
