Chicken Noodle Soup

Chicken Noodle Soup
Chicken noodle soup has to be the definition of comfort food, especially on a cold winter day and it is super easy to make at home from scratch! A flavourful homemade chicken broth or chicken stock is essential for a tasty chicken noodle soup and both are easy to make! Once you have your chicken broth or stock ready chicken noodle soup does not take too long to make where you are just cooking the vegetables followed by adding the broth or stock, chicken, seasoning and finally the noodles. At this point you have a pretty tasty chicken noodle soup but I like to add a few extras to make it even tastier! A while ago I figured out that you can enhance a chicken broth or stock by adding a parmesan rind while it simmers and why not do the same for chicken noodle soup? Since the chicken noodle soup is not simmering for a long time to bring the flavour out of the rind, I like to add some finely grated parmesan to the soup and let it melt in and disappear. I am a big fan of miso soup and I have found that miso works very well in a lot of soups including chicken noodle soup! Finally, I like to hit the chicken noodle soup with a splash of lemon brighten it up and add some freshness.

One of the things that I like about making chicken noodle soup is how efficiently the chicken is used! You start with a chicken and use it to make chicken broth, then you use the broth along with the meat to make the chicken noodle soup, then you use the carcass to make chicken stock and then you can make an even tastier chicken noodle soup!

You do love your japanese flavors! I love the idea of combining two classic comfort soups (Miso & Chicken Noodle) together. Will definitely try during the anticipated freezing Chicago winter!

One of my all time favorite comfort foods. Yours looks delicious!

Pam said...

Thanks for posting this. I have miso in my fridge, but haven't figured out how I want to use it. This is perfect. Do you think it would work in a turkey soup (from a turkey carcass)?

Lisa magicsprinkles said...

Love those hearty chunks of chicken!

Kevin said...

Pam: I think the miso would work really well in a turkey soup as well.

Jacque said...

Cathy - wheresmydamnanswer said...

OK Kevin - Get out of my head!! I was just thinking that I need a killer chicken noodle soup recipe and BAM here you are!!

Thanks

Mila said...

This is exactly how I make my chicken soup...except I never used miso...but with miso or without it is my cure to the winter blues!

Cooking and the City said...

its been a cold start to summer here & Kevin your delicious soup looks just the ticket to keeping warm :-)

Jaime said...

i wish i could have had some of your soup this week, as i was sick!

Leftovers rotisserie chicken is perfect for this. For each bowl of soup I stop a few cheese raviolis into the broth and scoop them out with the soup. You can do this for each rehearing of the soup and avoid overcooked noodles.

Just made this, it tastes pretty good. I did not use homemade chicken stock though, parsley, or white miso. Great recipe! Kevin, you should go on "Chopped". I've been a big fan of your blog for awhile, and you never fail to impress with great recipes.
