What's for dinner when you're sick?? HOMEMADE CHICKEN NOODLE SOUP

Homemade chicken noodle soup is great when you're sick. There was just something special about my mom always giving it to me when I was sick growing up. 


Young chicken (make sure to remove neck, giblets, etc.)
1/2 C or more vegetables (onions, celery, carrots, potatoes, etc.), diced small or minced
1/4 C pasta (even break spaghetti into 2" pieces)
salt and pepper to taste

Boil the chicken whole in a stock pot, water should cover chicken, for approx 12- 15 minutes. 

Remove chicken. 

Strain broth to remove solid fat & film. Place back into stock pot and add noodles & vegetables.

Remove skin & shred or cut up chicken into bite sized pieces. Add to pot. 

Cook for 5-10 min more.

Season with salt and pepper if desired.

Serve warm.

TIP: Freeze in individual serving sized containers or Ziplocs for easy microwave reheat meals for those sick days.
