My Version Of Chicken Noodle Soup

This chicken noodle soup is so comforting and delicious. The ingredients are healthy and easy to find at the store. Perfect for a picky eater, you can add any vegetables that you like. My husband and kids love eating vegetables I don’t have to worry about being a picky eater.

Soup get popular this time of the year since its cold outside and also it’s very comforting. It’s something easy to prepare and heats up whenever we needed it. I love experimenting when it comes to cooking in my kitchen. I am very happy to say that this soup is the best one I have ever made. I was pleased to hear from my husband and daughter how much they love the soup.

To make the chicken broth for the soup, I use my big pot then added the oil. I let the oil get to the temperature I want and add the garlic, ginger and star anise. Let it saute for few minutes then add the chicken, bay leaves, ground pepper, salt, lemongrass, and soy sauce. Bring the chicken to boil and let it cook for about 20 minutes or until the chicken is cooked. Take the chicken breast out and slice into serving size.

This soup can last you for about three days if you don’t eat it all on the second day. What I did was slice my vegetables thinly, then blanch them for about 2 minutes. The only thing I didn’t blanch was the onions and green onions. The noodles were blanch for about 2 to 3 minutes as well. When the chicken broth was ready, I took the two chicken breast out from the post and sliced it up into serving pieces.

Assembling the soup is pretty easy, in the small bowl I added the noodles first then I followed it with the vegetables that I like to eat. I used carrots, cabbage, celery, onions, green onions to complete the soup. However, you can add more vegetables like the mushrooms, bean sprout, jalapenos, bok choy or any greens that you like.

With different vegetables added to the noodles, it gives the soup beautiful colors. This soup is delicious, easy to make and comforting perfect to eat if you are feeling sick. I hope you enjoy this recipe, and if you try this recipe please let me know how you like it.

    1. Thank you. I use to buy a lot of canned soup but then I said to myself why not make my own. I still buy canned soup but keeping it for emergency. Hope you enjoy this soup.

  1. I have half of a whole chicken in my fridge leftover from last night and I didn’t know what to do with it. I have almost all the important ingredients on this list. Thanks for the inspiration, I’ll be making this tonight!
