Chicken Noodle Soup

I absolutely love chicken noodle soup. It is such a comfort food, it reminds me of home and it makes me happy to eat it. This is my moms recipe, she is such a great cook.

1- 3.-4 pound whole chicken
1 qt chicken stock or low sodium chicken broth
2 qts water
1 medium onion chopped
4 stalks celery sliced
4 carrots sliced
2 TBS dried parsley
6 garlic cloves minced
1 medium onion chopped
2 TBS poultry seasoning
2 TBS dried parsley
2TBS Olive Oil

Place the chicken in a large stockpot cover with the chicken stock and 3 quarts water and chicken broth. Add the onion , sliced carrots and celery, garlic, onion, poultry, parsley, and Olive Oil . Bring mixture to a boil, partially cover and reduce heat to a simmer. Simmer for 1 hour. The chicken should easily pull away from the bones.

Using tongs, remove the chicken from the broth and set aside until cool enough to handle. Pull the chicken meat off the bones, discarding the bones, skin, and any fat. Shred and reserve meat. Stir in reserved cooked chicken.

Season the soup with salt and pepper. Simmer until noodles are cooked through, 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from the heat Serve hot.

***Tip*** The great thing about this recipe is that you can make it your own! If you want to add a little more this or a little less of that you can. You can also use garlic salt instead of garlic, or you could use fresh parsley instead of dried recipe. Make this recipe your own, and have fun with it!
