My mom have started this new thing. See, we get together every Thursday and always have lunch and chat and all that. Well, we decided that we're going to start making something for lunch homemade every time. Today is our first time and we're doing chicken noodle soup. Not going by any recipe, just throwing in what we like. We aren't using homemade stock, but I think that's ok.

Anyway, cross your fingers that it turns out good!

Sorta. tongue


My mom was in charge of meat, broth, and noodles. I did the veggies and spices.


This is as close as I can remember:


5 boneless/skinless chicken breasts
5 boneless/skinless chicken thighs
2 cans chicken stock

Last night, my mom started with the chicken frozen and just boiled it in the stock until it was done. Then this morning she cut it into cubes. The chicken was seasoned with pepper. I'm pretty sure she added water to the stock too.

1 'bunch' (package) carrots
1 'bunch' (package) celery
1 medium yellow onion
1 'bunch' green onion

I chopped the carrots and celery into 'coins.'
The yellow onion I rough chopped.
The green onion I rough chopped.

Noodles (homemade)(double-batch)
1 cup flour
1 large egg (scrambled)
salt (quite a bit, but don't remember how much)
milk

In a food processor we pulsed the flour and salt just to mix it. Then we added the egg and pulsed until it was well incorporated. Then we slowly added milk until the dough formed a ball in the food processor. We dumped it out onto a floured table and rolled it out with a rolling pin. Be sure to flour under it and on top quite often to make sure it doesn't stick. Then roll the dough up and start cutting from one end. Cut those in half to get a good size noodle. When cutting and making your pile of noodles, sprinkle flour over them to make sure they don't stick. Then use a strainer to shake the extra flour off. Lay them out on foil until ready to use.

Spices
2 dried bay leaves
1/3 cup rough chopped fresh parsley
1 tablespoon dried thyme



Put cubed chicken back into stock, add veggies and spices. Bring to a boil then let simmer until veggies cooked a little over 1/2 way. Add noodles and bring to another boil. Then let simmer for about an hour until noodles are done.



We served it with a fresh baguette from the bakery. I gotta say, it was the BEST chicken noodle soup I've EVER had. Nothing has ever even come close. I can't wait to make this again.

sounds weird .... but if you brew a pot of green tea (2-3 bags) and add it to your stock -- it tastes incredibly good

wife did this to me once, and i was stunned at how good it tasted
