My son was not feeling well the other day, and I began his favorite requested treat upon waking. In just a few hours, we had ladles of soup that I swear has its own medicinal properties because he felt much better by nightfall! I use chicken soup I receive from my food pantry instead of bouillon. This saves money and time.
2 whole legs of chicken
3 cans chicken soup (drained and noodles set aside)
4 carrots peeled and sliced
4 stalks of celery sliced
1 whole onion sliced
2-3 garlic cloves chopped
2 bay leafs
2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. pepper
2 tsp. Herbs De Provence (found at local bulk health food store under $1)
1 tsp. turmeric (optional)
1 1/2 cups of your favorite noodles
To a pot on top of the stove, add chicken, drained chicken soup, carrots, celery, onion, and garlic. Cover with water. Add remaining herbs and spices and let simmer 1 1/2 hours. Take chicken out and set aside to cool. While pot is still simmering, add noodles and let cook on low for about 10 min. Meanwhile take cooled chicken off the bone and replace it in pot. Turn off pot and replace lid. All you need is a loaf of bread!
