We were the only one's there, so Koko got to chase the birds, off her leash. While I gathered some of these...
I started out by boiling 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts in about 8 cups of water, that I added salt to.
When the chicken is cooked I shred it and put it back in the pot and add veggies. I usually add whatever I have in the fridge or freezer, but today I did it the hubby's favorite way. I added a few handfuls of prepackaged baby carrots, and half a bag of frozen corn. (If I had had any, I would have added peas too, but we were out). I then added 2 cans of cream of chicken soup. (I have also used 1 can of cream of chicken and one can of celery or mushroom, but all I had today was the cream of chicken).
Let the soup simmer with the noodles 10-15 minutes. Then Enjoy!
Mmmm, yum! So easy and so good! This is the hubby's bowl, I bought him some dinner rolls to go with his! I had a whole wheat pita with mine! Smother the roll with homemade jam, mmmm....
Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
2 tsp. salt (or to taste)
1 tsp. pepper
4-5 cups of veggies of your choice. carrots, onion, peas, corn, potatoes, mushrooms, celery, green beans.
2 cans of cream of chicken soup (or one can and one can of cream of mushroom, or cream of celery)
Boil the chicken breasts in the water and salt until tender. Remove from water and shred, then place back in water. Add the two cans of soup, and the veggies, let simmer for an hour. Turn off heat until 1 hour before dinner.
One hour before dinner, turn the heat back on the soup. Begin making the noodles:
Home Made Noodles
2 cups flour
1 tsp. salt
2 (room temperature) eggs
4 Tbls. milk
Add the flour and the salt to a mixing bowl. In separate bowl mix eggs and milk. Pour egg mixture into flour mixture, stir with a fork until completely mixed, let sit for 20-30 minutes. Roll out dough using extra flour and rolling pin in two batches. Cut with pizza cutter into noodles, plop into simmering soup. Let simmer for 10-15 minutes. Serve and enjoy! Will make about 8 servings.
I have also just made the soup and added premade/prepackaged egg noodles, premade gnocci, dumplings, or just the chicken and veggies is good too!
Let me know if you have any questions! The Whole Wheat Cookies will be up in a bit!
Have a great Wednesday!
