Mom's Chicken Noodle Soup

A couple weeks back I made this wonderful Chicken Noodle Soup Recipe that I found at Newlyweds site. Since half my house was sick, I thought a good homemade chicken noodle soup would be perfect. I remembered the recipe because the first time I saw this soup it looked so good and creamy.

I love homemade soup it always makes you feel better sick or not. I was a little pressed for time, so I wasn't able to cut up my chicken into pieces. I just followed the recipe exactly but used a whole fryer. This recipe turned out so good, I love the addition of the evaporated milk.

I had never had a soup where it utilized evaporated milk, it really did make a difference it was so creamy and good. Next time I make homemade chicken noodle soup, I will be using this recipe again. There is just something about good homemade soup, it gives you warm fuzzies all over.

These are the ingredients you will need: 1 whole fryer, celery, carrots, onion, salt, pepper, fresh garlic, Paula Deen's House Seasoning (optional) to taste, fresh or dry fettuccine or linguine noodles and one 12 oz can evaporated milk

cut the chicken into pieces and heat the pan to scorching hot, add the chicken to brown slightly. Like i said above i did not have time to cut up my chicken, so I just tossed him in the scorching pot whole.

It turned out really golden brown on all sides.

Roughly chop in bigger pieces the celery, onions and garlic (I used prepared garlic)

Add to pot along with a handful of salt and pepper

Then add 1 box of chicken stock and then water till chicken is slightly covered. Cook for 20-30 minutes boiling till meat is cooked and tender. (cut up pieces) My whole chicken took about a hour and a half to two hours. Then remove all vegetables bits and throw away. De bone chicken, and set the stock aside. I ran my stock through a fine strainer and discarded all the yucky stuff.


This left a nice broth.


finely chop celery, onions, garlic, and carrots. Add veggies to stock (the chicken was cooked in)


along with second box of chicken stock, the box of chicken stock is optional, you could add more water if you want more liquid.


Chop noodles if using refrigerated fettuccine or break up dry fettuccine/linguine noodles add to soup. Then add chicken


and evaporated milk. Cook another 15-20 minutes on medium heat until noodles and veggies are soft. If using dry noodles it will take a bit longer. Test the noodles for doneness.

Ummm look how good the soup turned out. Serve with crusty bread or hot rolls.

I wanted to include a email that I recieved yesterday from one of my readers. Here name is Erin. I thought it was so nice of her to take time out of her day to drop me an email to let me know how much she likes Mommy's Kitchen. She even sent a beautiful picture of her family so I could place a face with her note. Thank you so much Erin, it is emails and comments like yours that make my site what it is. I always wonder who is reading Mommy's Kitchen and if they enjoy my recipes. Now I know they really do. Thanks again.


My house smells DELICIOUS – ribs are in the oven cooking away – (shhh, I don’t eat ribs, but my husband loves them) I will report back with his review! Thanks again for keeping up with an AWESOME blog – oh, I made the Almost Almond Joys for Valentine’s Day for my husband’s office – they stole the show! Even my coconut hating husband loved them and ate 3 (I made them with 1 almond and rolled into a ball) and said those are great – I asked if he was starving and told him there was coconut in them and he said, I don’t hate coconut in these things – they are awesome!

Thanks again!

Erin

btw – I attached a photo – since I see you and your family, it is only fair that you have a face to put with the gal that emails you!

Tina neighbor. Excellent soup recipe. I'm a believer of having chicken soup during cold season. I really believe it works to help you get rid of a horrible cold. I add some jalapenos to mine though. The peppers seem to help clear the sinuses.

I just made a pot of chicken soup a few days ago myself - same reason. The weather's been so wacky lately, cold then hot then cold I picked up a cold. No milk in mine, though I bet that's good too. Oh and next time just take a meat cleaver to that bad boy and crack it open!

That was a really sweet note you got from Erin. Comments and emails like that make this blogging experience the best!

Do you have a new background or am I crazy LOL?

I just found your site today when I was looking up directions on how to cook oatmeal in the crockpot. This soup looks wonderful! I love the idea of using evaporated milk! I'll have to try that next time. I make a similar soup but I use the crockpot and I don't use boxed broth. The carcass, veggies, and spices I add make a good enough broth on their own. Then, if I have left-over broth I pour it into ice cube trays and freeze it for future recipes. Just a thought. :)
Thanks for your site. I like what I've seen so far and I look forward to reading more.

Since I'm a lifetime Weight Watcher still have to watch those points. I used cut up chicken breast, left out the carrots (my daughter is allergic to them). Instead of evaporated milk I used 2 cups of skim milk, also used frozen homemade noodles. Very tasty, this recipe is a keeper.

I was confused with the vegetable part. First the recipe state to rough cut and cook and then discard the veggies (minus the carrots) then later it says to finely chop the veggies and cook them with the noodles. Do you use half the amount in the recipe to make the stock and the other half to cook with the soup? Just wondering. Love your site, I am using many of the recipes for the cooking class I am teaching a group of teenagers.
