Chicken Noodle Soup IS The Best Comfort Food
There is a bite of cold in the air, the leaves are turning beautiful shades of red and yellow, and snow is not long off. Fall is here and it is time to break out my favorite Homemade Soup recipes.
There’s nothing better than a chilly day, a big fuzzy blanket, and a warm bowl of Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup.
This Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup recipe is one that you can go back to again and again. It is the one homemade chicken noodle soup to permanently put in your recipe box. It has all the classic flavors you love: sweet slices of carrot, fresh hints of celery, savory pieces of onion, the warm flavor of garlic, and, the star- chicken.
The Secret to Flavorful Chicken Broth
The broth in my recipe is not homemade chicken broth, but it is bursting with chicken flavor! There is nothing worse than digging into a bowl of chicken soup and the broth looks like water and the only chicken flavor comes from the actual pieces of chicken.
The “secret” to getting a bold flavored broth without making your own stock is a tablespoon of chicken base. It adds that intense chicken flavor you want in the the broth of your chicken noodle soup.
If you are not familiar with chicken base it is similar to a chicken bouillon but it comes in a tub and is paste-like. You can find it in the soup aisle of your grocery store. I like to buy Better Than Bouillon brand.
Frozen Egg Noodles
One of the very best part of this chicken noodle soup recipe is the Reames frozen egg noodles. They are so much better than the traditional dry kluski noodle or dry egg noodles. The Reames noodles are thick and have a big hearty bite and actual FLAVOR. It really is the icing on the cake.. or I guess in this case, the noodle in the soup.
Soup for Dinner
At our house we just serve this with saltine crackers or a large warm baguette, and that’s it. This is a pretty hearty soup that fills you up on it’s own! A loaf of my 4 Ingredient Beer Bread would make a great side too!
This recipe makes quite a bit of soup, so plan on leftovers! Which, in this case, is even better than the first go-around. YUM
