Recipe Day

Chicken BUdle Soup

On the spur of the moment last Sunday, I decided to whip up some homemade chicken noodle soup for my tired wife. I didn't start from any known recipe and used only what I had around the house, but just continuously threw things into a pot until I deemed it complete. It was surprisingly delicious, which is why I've tried to recreate the directions here. Enjoy!

Ingredients:

  • 1 pot of water
  • a dash of olive oil
  • 3 chicken bouillon cubes
  • 1 full sprig of fresh rosemary, diced small enough to not get stuck in your teeth
  • thyme
  • savory
  • garlic powder
  • onion salt
  • salt
  • fresh ground black pepper
  • cornstarch
  • pre-cooked chicken pieces
  • vegetables of choice
  • linguini (for Campbell's style, or egg noodles for Progresso)
  1. In your big shells and cheese pot, bring about six cups of water, 3 bouillon cubes, and a dash of olive oil to a light boil. Keep it cool enough to taste easily.
  2. Mix in spices to taste. I used these rough proportions:
    • lots of rosemary and onion salt
    • some thyme, garlic powder, and pepper
    • a dash of savory and salt
  3. Once you get your desired taste, bring to a rolling boil and dump in a quarter box of linguini, broken into 1/2" sections. Boil over medium heat.
  4. Meanwhile, mix a cup of cold water with however much cornstarch accidentally explodes out of your old box when you tap on the bottom. When dissolved, pour into your broth and stir slowly until thickened. You don't need a chowder, but it will definitely start to resemble the thick noodle soup broth you might find in a high quality lunch buffet.
  5. Let your broth and noodles cook for 30 - 45 minutes total. Tweak your spices or thicken with cornstarch and cold water as desired.
  6. When you have about 15 minutes left, add any vegetables you might want. We used frozen broccoli, straight from the freezer.
  7. When you have about 8 minutes left, add pre-cooked chicken, cut into cubes. We used the pre-grilled chicken strips you can get in a bag at Costco for salads and burritos.
  8. Enjoy! And then serve to others.
