Chicken Noodle Soup is a popular soup that is believed to have anti-inflammatory effects that can temporarily relieve illness. This soup is simply made-up of chicken meat, chicken stock or broth, wide egg noodles, vegetables, and spices.
There are several ways to prepare this soup dish. One of the earliest methods makes use of a whole dressed chicken. The chicken is boiled in several cups of water to extract juices that will make-up the broth. Bones are then removed from the boiled chicken while the meat is chopped to attain a uniform size and placed back in the cooking pot for further cooking. The method that we’ll be using here is more practical than the conventional style because this will save you more time and effort. Instead of starting from scratch, chopped deboned chicken and pre-packed chicken stock will be used; this saves time in boiling and deboning.
I enjoy having Chicken Noodle Soup during cold weather: it makes me feel warm and somewhat relieves the stress that builds up from a whole days work. After finishing a bowl of this healing soup, I always feel relaxed and recharged.
