The Best Chicken Noodle Soup Recipe Ever

Chicken Noodle Soup

This is Sara’s recipe.  It is the best! I promise!  I think the secret to making this soup is the garlic.  When in doubt, just add more garlic.  She gives two different ways to to make it.  The best way, and the the easy way.  I usually don’t have time to go with “the best way”, but “the easy way” is fabulous! She has directions to making homemade noodles which is best.  Most the time I use Granny’s frozen noodles.  They can be found in the freezer section at the grocery store.
THE BEST WAY
Rinse off a full chicken with warm water.  Then put it in your roasting pot and take some cold sliced butter and whole peeled garlic cloves and insert them between the skin and the meat of the chicken.  Take one or two quartered onions and in the pan.  Add about 1 cup of water and one bullion cube.  Roast in the oven at 350 degrees for 2 – 2 1/2 hours (depending on how big your chicken is)
While the Chicken is cooking I cut up all my veggies:
1 Cup Sliced Celery
1 1/2 Cups Sliced Carrots
2 Cups Diced potatoes
Then I put them in a pot on the stove with about:
6 Cups Water
4 Bullion Cubes
3 Bay Leaves
2 tsp Parsley
Boil soup and add noodles about when the veggies are halfway cooked.  Add the strained juice from the roasted chicken to help give the soup the BEST broth ever!  I take the quarted onions that were roasted with the chicken and chop them up and add to the soup too.  Pull the cooked chicken off the roasted chicken and add to your soup.  Any additional spices needed should be added like maybe garlic – salt and pepper.  The bullion is what I use in place of salt to make the soup but then add salt at the end to perfect it.
THE EASY WAY
INGREDIENTS

1 Cup Sliced Carrots
1 Cup Diced potatoes

Ultimate Potato Soup

Ultimate Potato Soup

This was by far one of the best Potato Soup recipes I’ve ever prepared!  I always double it because my kids love it so much.  I also add more veggies depending on what I have on hand.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cup green onions
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 5 cup cubed potatoes
  • 3/4 cup chopped celery
  • 1 1/3 cup carrots
  • 2 cups water
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 4 cup milk
  • 2 cubes chicken bouillon

Add onions and 1/4 cup water in a LARGE pot. Cook until tender.  Add the veggies, salt, and 2 cups of water. Cover and simmer 20 to 25 minutes.

While that is cooking, melt the butter in ANOTHER pot.  Add the flour, salt & pepper.  Cook until it starts to bubble and thickens.  Slowly add milk and bouillon.  Keep stirring until it thickens up.  Dump into the veggie pot. Simmer for 15 minutes.

Add cheese, bacon bits.
