Home Made Chicken Noodle Soup!

Recipe by  

"This is an easy-to-make recipe from my Hungarian mother. No stock, no bouillon, and some peppercorn and parsnip are used for a bit of bite. If you don't have a metal tea-ball or herb bag, you can seal the peppercorn in a piece of cheesecloth tied with some kitchen twine. This way we get all of the pepper and none of the hassle. Keep noodles and soup separate until serving. If you mix the noodles in with the broth, they will get soggy and overcooked. If you have leftovers, store the noodles and soup separate or make a new batch of noodles the next day."

  1. Place chicken and whole onion into the bottom of a large pot. Pour enough water over the chicken to cover completely. Put peppercorns in a metal tea ball; add to the pot.
  2. Bring water to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low, and cook at a simmer until the chicken until no longer pink and is falling off the bone, 40 to 60 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the thigh, near the bone should read 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).
  3. Remove chicken from the broth with a slotted spoon to a bowl; set aside to cool.
  4. Remove the onion and give it a squeeze to get as much of the flavor as possible. Discard the onion.
  5. Stir carrots, parsnips, and celery into the broth; bring to a boil and cook vegetables until tender, 10 to 15 minutes. Remove and discard peppercorns.
  6. While the vegetables boil, bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook egg noodles in the boiling water, stirring occasionally until cooked through but firm to the bite, about 5 minutes. Drain. Divide between 6 soup bowls.
  7. Remove meat from chicken and discard bones. Cut meat into bite-size chunks and stir into vegetable mixture with parsley. Season with salt. Ladle soup over noodles to serve.

Easy and quick but more to the point - delicious! Everyone had seconds, and believe me, that is huge in my family! I didn't use the parsnip only because I forgot to buy some - soup was still plenty tasteful. There is no salt added to this recipe so if you are watching your sodium, this soup is plenty flavorful as is!

I found this recipe to be incredibly bland. I had to make so many alterations to the recipe that it was basically a new one.

I tried one similar to this one in a crock pot but the parsnips made the soup taste sour. Never make this one in a crock pot. My grandmother used to do a similar one using beef soup bones and we skimmed off the scum as it cooked. She always made homemade noodles.
