Chicken Noodle Soup

A bowl of homemade chicken noodle soup is one of the most comforting foods you can place on your table. It’s a great way to show off the hearty goodness of homemade chicken broth. It’s also a great way to show off your creativity by personalizing the flavour whichever way you want.

Serving: Makes 4 servings

Tags: ,


A splash vegetable oil
1 carrot, peeled and finely diced
1 stalk celery, finely diced
1 onion, peeled and finely diced
2 or 3 cloves garlic, thinly sliced (optional)
4 cups chicken broth
1 cup shredded meat from broth (optional)
1 cup your favorite noodle or pasta
A handful flat leaf parsley, chopped
A few sprigs fresh thyme, stems removed, leaves minced
1 thinly sliced green onion


Splash the vegetable oil into a stockpot, enough to cover the bottom in a thin film. Begin heating over medium-high heat. Add the vegetables and sauté them for a few minutes, heating them through and brightening their flavours.

Add the chicken broth and bring it to a simmer. Add the chicken meat, if using, and the noodles or pasta and continue cooking until the noodles are tender. Stir in the parsley, fresh thyme and green onion. Serve immediately.

    Enjoy watching your shows …. the other day you had made a corn bread recipe, of your mother’s, that finished off being baked in the oven. I did have the time to write the ingredients down or the method – so was hoping to find it on your web site — but I’m not find it.

    Could you please advise if this recipe is available?
    Thank you.

You can add any vegetable or fresh herb you like to this soup. You can also use a favourite flavour theme like Mediterranean, stirring in zucchini, sun-dried tomatoes and a spoonful or two of Basil Pesto, or Southwestern, with tomatoes, bell peppers, chili peppers, chili powder, cumin and cilantro.
