Hey everyone, Patricia Davids here again, after a slight hiatus. As I pop my head up from the latest deadline guess what I realized! Fall is here! Cooler weather, holiday gatherings looming on the horizon and (*cough, cough) cold and flu season. Thankfully, secluded in my new little farmhouse, I haven’t run into either ailment…yet! Whether you’re feeling under the weather, or you just want to chase away the chill from your bones, I have just the thing! Amish Chicken Noodle soup to warm any belly! This recipe comes from an Amish friend here in Kansas. It calls for leftover chicken/already cooked chicken. Happy eating. I think I’ll make some tonight.
Amish Chicken Noodle Soup
3 cups chicken broth/stock
2 cups water
1 /2 cup diced carrots
1 /2 cup diced celery
1 /2 cup frozen peas (optional)
1 /4 cup diced onions
1 /2 package egg noodles or use homemade noodles
flour (if desired, for thickening agent)
Combine water and broth, bring to a boil.
Add carrots, celery, and onions.
Simmer for about 10-20 minutes over low heat.
Simmer 10-15 minutes more.
Add frozen peas
Add 3 cups cooked, cut-up chicken.
Bring to a boil.
Add salt and pepper season to taste.
Take a little of the broth, about 1/2 a cup, and add a touch of flour to thicken and combine with the rest of the soup.
