Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup

I made some Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup over the weekend - and it was a huge success!

I put it all in the crockpot except for the noodles around 10am, and let it cook till Dinner. It was so great on a cold night, made the house smell good, and the girls loved it.

I highly recommend it...

Not a great picture, but believe me, it's SO good.

I got a recipe from here, but changed some things around. Here are the directions:


Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups wide egg noodles
  • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
  • 12 cups chicken broth
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons salt (I recommend using a little less and salting to taste)
  • 1 teaspoon poultry seasoning
  • 1 cup chopped celery
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1 cup chopped carrots (more veggies if you like - we used more :))
  • 1/3 cup cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 3 cups diced, cooked chicken meat

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine broth, salt, and poultry seasoning. Stir in celery and onion.
  2. In a small bowl, mix cornstarch and water together until cornstarch is completely dissolved. Gradually add to soup, stirring constantly.
  3. Pour into crockpot.
  4. I cooked the noodles right before we were ready to eat, I didn't add them in the crockpot because I thought they might get mushy or over cook. I ended up loving cooking the soup base and the noodles separate, I think it's a step I'll keep :).
So that's it! Sounds great, huh? I'm going to make a double batch sometime soon and freeze it - what a great quick dinner on a cold night when I just don't feel like making anything.

Broccoli Cheese soup is next on the soup menu, that also sounds reeaally good.

Hope you all had a great weekend!
