Mkay so I have been making homemade chicken noodle soup for SEVERAL years, but the stuff I made tonight! It was the BEST I have every made! The secret was in the noodles. Typically they get a little mushy, but tonight I did them RIGHT!
the BEST chicken noodle soup
3 boneless skinless chicken breasts
8 cups chicken broth
2 cups water
4 carrots, sliced into coins
4 stalks of celery, sliced
wide egg noodles
Place chicken in pot (my chicken breasts were still frozen and it worked JUST fine); cover with water. Boil for about 15 minutes. Remove chicken breasts and cut them into chunks. Return chicken to pot. Add chicken broth, water, carrots, celery, garlic & pepper. Simmer for 20 - 30 minutes. Add egg noodles. Turn heat down to low. Cook until noodles are ALMOST soft, still a bit al dente. Remove the pot from the burner and cover it. Let is sit for 10 minutes.
