Ingredients

  • 2 chicken leg quarters
  • 6 cups water
  • 1/2 cup chopped celery (about 1 rib)
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion (about 1/2 onion)
  • 2 cups sliced carrots (about 4 carrots)
  • 1 tablespoon dried parsley
  • 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups (2.5 ounces) whole grain wide egg noodles

Instructions

  1. Put chicken and water in a large stock pot. Bring water to a simmer (slow boil). Cook until chicken reaches 165°F (10-15 minutes).
  2. Clean and chop vegetables while chicken is cooking.
  3. Take chicken out of water with tongs or fork. Cool in refrigerator about 5 to 10 minutes.
  4. Add vegetables and parsley, Italian seasoning, pepper, and salt to the pot of hot water.
  5. Remove bones and skin from chicken and discard when it is cool enough to handle. Cut meat into bite sized pieces and add to the pot of hot water. Bring to a boil.
  6. Add noodles when water is boiling. Cook according to package directions or about 5 minutes.

Tips

Any chicken part may be used for this recipe. If using boneless, skinless chicken breasts, use only 3/4 pound.

Soup freezes well. Make ahead and freeze for a cold or sick day.

Other seasoning may be used instead of the parsley and Italian seasoning.

Remove chicken skin before cooking if you like. This will decrease fat and calories slightly.
