If you’re looking for a hearty, homemade, and surprisingly simple chicken noodle soup recipe, you’ve hit pay dirt. Here’s what you need:
- 8 cups water
- 15 chicken bouillon cubes
- 2 chicken breasts
- 1 1/2 cups broccoli, minced
- 1 cup carrots, minced
- 1 large onion, minced
- 4 cloves garlic, minced
- 1/2 jalapeno, minced (optional)
- 1 cup celery, minced (optional)
- 12 oz egg noodles (the thicker, the better)
- Salt & pepper
Fill a medium pot with the water and bouillon cubes and bring to a boil. Once the bouillon cubes have dissolved, add chicken breasts.
While the chicken is cooking, mince the broccoli, carrots, onion, garlic, jalapeno, and celery (if using).
Once the breasts are cooked (about 5-10 minutes, depending on the size), remove them from the solution. Skim off any fat left behind in the broth and add the vegetables. Pour in the noodles and boil as directed (probably 7 minutes). Chop the chicken into dime-sized pieces and season it with salt and pepper to taste. Add it back into the mixture.
Add water as needed to reach your desired consistency, then add salt and pepper to taste. Enjoy!
