Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup Recipe

Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup Recipe

Everyone knows that chicken noodle soup is the best when you're sick. But did you know that there's actually a scientific reason why chicken noodle soup is good for you when you're sick? Doctor's say that "Chicken soup inhibits inflammation of the cells in the nasal passage, reducing the symptoms of a cold. The hot soup also promotes mucus secretions that soothe sore throats and coughs and trap bacteria."

Here's a recipe we make a lot around the our house when someone's feeling under the weather:

1 rotisseri chicken, picked
8 cups chicken broth
1 large onion, chopped
1 tbsp minced garlic
4 ribs celery, sliced
1 1/2 cups parsnips, sliced
1 1/2 cups carrots, sliced
2 tbsp parsley
1/2 tsp pepper
1 bay leaf
1 package egg noodles

1. In a large stock pot, place chicken, chicken broth, celery, carrots, parsnips, onion, parsley, pepper and bay leaf and bring to a low boil. Cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.

2. Add egg noodles and cook another 10 mins then serve.

Serves: 6-8
