Chicken Noodle Soup to Break the Fast after Yom Kippur or for any day you want something hot, soothing, and yummy!
If using the Slow Cooker- you add everything in and place on Slow setting for 4 hours or High setting for 2 hours. Otherwise, grab your best cast-iron dutch oven or a good stockpot for this recipe!
Enjoy! – Nishmati
- 2 chicken breast with bone attached
- 3 lb. chicken broth
- 1 cup of chopped carrots
- 1 cup of chopped celery
- 1 cup of onion
- enough olive oil to pan sear the chicken
- 1 12 oz. bag of Extra Wide Egg noodles
- your fav spices and fresh herbs (I used parsley, garlic, 4 bay leaves, season-all-salt, turmeric, black pepper, & Herb de Provence Blend (a mix of Rosemary, Basil, Thyme, oregano, marjoram, & savory all in one blend)
Chop the veggies and add oil to the dutch oven/stockpot and fry the veggies until light brown.
Add the chicken and all of your fav spices. Pan sear the chicken where the outside is light brown as well.
Pour your broth inside and mix. Then cover your pot to cook the soup on med/high for 1 hour.
When your chicken has finished cooking, remove it from the soup and set it aside. We will remove the meat from the bone to place back in shortly.
Now add your egg noodles to the soup and cook on med/low setting for about 5-10 min. You will notice that some of your broth is lower because you added the noodles. Now is the time to add enough water to your pot to cover the noodles.
Egg noodles cook fast, so watch your time and check the soup every few minutes.
Pull the meat from your chicken and dice or shred. Discard the bones and add the meat back to the pot. At this point, you can cut off your stove and let the soup warm itself with the cover on for a few minutes. This soup is really meant to be chunky, so enjoy as. However, if you like a more runny soup- make sure you have a good consistency of broth to chunk ratio by adding more broth or water to it. Be careful when you add water because you may need to up your spices for flavor so it doesn’t end up bland.
If you added Bay Leaves like I did, remove them and discard.
Enjoy your soup.
