Cooking Thursday

You guys!  I made the best soup this past week!  It's a little time consuming, but it makes a big pot and is oh, so, good.  Bob said - "you have to put this one on the menu on a regular basis".  I knew I had to share it here - hope you try it!

Creamy Chicken Noodle Soup

approx. 2# whole chicken
4 cups chicken broth
8 cups water
one onion quartered
3 teaspoons chicken stock
2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
2 teaspoons garlic powder
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon salt
4 bay leaves
Add all ingredients to a large soup or stock pot.  Cook until chicken is cooked through - about 45 minutes.
Remove chicken from pot and allow to cool. Pour broth through strainer to remove onions, bay leaves and any sediment. Return stock to pot.
Remove chicken from bones - discard bones and skin, and set chicken aside.

2 cups sliced carrots
2 cups sliced celery
2 cups uncooked frozen egg noodles*
3 tablespoons chopped, fresh parsley
2 teaspoons chopped, fresh rosemary
1/3 cup cooking sherry
1 cup grated parmesan cheese
3/4 cup heavy cream
Bring stock back to a boil. Add carrots and cook for about 3 minutes, then add celery and cook for another 10 minutes.
Add egg noodles and cook as directed on package.
When noodles are done, stir in chicken, parsley, rosemary and sherry.  Then stir in parmesan and cream.
Cook for about 2 minutes.  Add salt and pepper as desired.
*The frozen egg noodles make a big difference in the end result.  I used Reames, I'm told Granny's are also good.  If these are not available, regular noodles will also work.

Yum! I love a big pot of soup with leftovers through the week! said...

Soup is always good and especially if it is homemade.

Arlene Grimm said...

It has been so hot here that salads have even my food of choice lately. That soup looks yummy though.

Patsy said...

It looks and I know smells so good.

Karen said...

This sounds so delicious! I will definitely be copying this recipe.

Looks yummy but too many ingredients for me. I'm a 4 tops! I know why your husband loves you so:)

Laura said...

That looks delicious! Aaron is always on the hunt for the perfect chicken noodle soup, so we'll have to try this.

I am saving this one. We love chicken noodle soup...and the fact that this one is creamy makes it even more appealing. :) Thank you, Mari.

Thanks for another winner Mari! This sounds fabulous and there's barely anything better than a REALLY GOOD chicken soup!! Mmmmmmm - I can almost taste this already with the extras of sherry, parmesan and cream (I make a cream of chicken soup with the cream and sherry). Perfection! Putting it in my file. ;)

That sounds really good, Mari. I've never seen frozen egg noodles before, I wonder if I can get them here. I will check when I shop this weekend. I made your crockpot veggie soup with the V-8 last week and it was awesome! I'm going to make it again in a couple of weeks, probably. Thanks!

This soup sounds really good and it has MEAT in it! That should work for these men.

It looks so yummy! And it's something I haven't made in along time. Thanks for the recipe! Hugs, Diane

I was thinking about soup today, and there you have a great recipe! Thanks for sharing, Mari. You sure post some good food. :)

I've been making this recipe all winter. In fact I just made it today! We absolutely love it. Lori sent it to me a few months ago. It is actually Paula Deen's recipe. It's called The Lady's Chicken Noodle Soup. I never add the cream.

Good grief! That's a serious soup recipe. I am too lazy to make stock but I hope when I change my ways, I have the wherewithal to make this one. xoxo
