Homemade chicken noodle soup

Homemade chicken noodle soup



This is my second review, we have been making this soup since the recipe was published in Taste of Home in 2016 we happen to believe it is the best chicken noodle soup, and certainly don’t agree that it is “tasteless”, far from that! I do realize that we all have different “taste” when it comes to food, so may add more or less to our individual taste, we happen to like it as is although I do not like too much salt so I do not add use and salt low sodium products whenever I can. In short, don’t hesitate to try this based on the few negative reviews!

Delicious. I am cooking this soup every two weeks. I love the video, makes it easy to follow the preparation process.

Ah, Lynette, that’s how my grandmother taught me how to make chicken soup! You make your own stock, put it in the fridge, the next day skim off all the fat, debone the chicken, and proceed from there. You really can taste the difference between homemade stock and what you buy at the store. It’s not hard. And Joey – are you freakin serious?

I just made this recipe exactly as printed, and it was decent. But it was not the best chicken noodle soup I ever had. They need to get out more if this is the best, though not sure what chicken noodle soup all these rave-reviewers have been eating!

This is a lot like my recipe I have used for years. I use olive oil because it is what I have on hand. And I use both dark and white meat. And also use basil instead if parsley. I sometimes add a few left over peas from dinner the night before. And a small amount (to taste) of Cayenne pepper for those with a cold. And a few sauted mushrooms. BUT I tried this recipe to the “T”! ! And I must say it is a very yummy soup. It is a keeper in my recipe box. Thank you so much for sharing with us. You have a winner here in my heart! ! THANK YOU! ! ? They LOVED this soup, though ?

My kids don’t like vegetables, especially onions and garlic. Only thing I did different was add a bunch of basil leaves fresh instead of parsley, and I picked up a rotisserie chicken (original) for my meat.

Excellent. Before, i used homemade spaghetti l had cooked to much of the night. It has a great hearty flavour. Janet. VFE

I just found the chicken noodle soup recipe I’m going to keep! This was fantastic as written! Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe! I paired it with cheddar biscuits.

This is a great recipe! I do make my own broth and that is what I used. Just the right amount of chicken and vegetables! I used less noodles.

Dark chocolate

Dark chocolate means the shiny, dark-reddish brown treat produced from the cacao bean, theobroma…

White chocolate

To purists, this is not chocolate because it is made only from the fat or butter of the cacao…

Milk chocolate

Milk chocolate is classically made from dark chocolate of low cocoa solid content and a higher…

  • 3 large eggs
  • 275g golden caster sugar
  • Cut 185g unsalted butter into small tip and cubes into a medium bowl. Break 185g dark chocolate into small pieces and drop into the bowl.

    Fill a small saucepan about a quarter full with hot water, then sit the bowl on top so it rests on the rim of the pan, not touching the water. Put over a low heat until the chocolate and butter have melted, stirring occasionally to mix them.

    Remove the bowl from the pan. Alternatively, cover the bowl loosely with cling film and put in the microwave for 2 minutes on High. Leave the melted mixture to cool to room temperature.

    While you wait for the chocolate to cool, position a shelf in the middle of your oven and turn the oven on to 180C/ 160C fan/ gas 4.

    Using a shallow 20cm square tin, cut out a square of non-stick baking parchment to line the base. Tip 85g plain flour and 40g cocoa powder into a sieve held over a medium bowl. shake and Tap the sieve so they run through together and you get rid of any lumps.

    Chop 50g white chocolate and 50g milk chocolate into chunks on a board.

    Break 3 large eggs into a large tip and bowl in 275g golden caster sugar. With an electric mixer on maximum speed, whisk the eggs and sugar. They will look thick and creamy, like a milk shake. This can take 3-8 minutes, depending on how powerful your mixer is. You’ll know it’s ready when the mixture becomes really pale and about double its original volume. Another check is to turn off the mixer, lift out the beaters and wiggle them from side to side. If the mixture that runs off the beaters leaves a trail on the surface of the mixture in the bowl for a second or two, you’re there.

    Pour the cooled chocolate mixture over the eggy mousse, then gently fold together with a rubber spatula. Plunge the spatula in at one side, take it underneath and bring it up the opposite side and in again at the middle. Continue going under and over in a figure of eight, moving the bowl round after each folding so you can get at it from all sides, until the two mixtures are one and the colour is a mottled dark brown. The idea is to marry them without knocking out the air, so be as gentle and slow as you like.

    Hold the sieve over the bowl of eggy chocolate mixture and resift the cocoa and flour mixture, shaking the sieve from side to side, to cover the top evenly. Before,

    Gently fold in this powder using the same figure of eight action as. The mixture will look dusty and dry at first, and a bit unpromising, but if you keep going very gently and patiently, it will end up looking gungy and fudgy. As you don’t want to overdo this mixing, stop just before you feel you should.

    Finally, stir in the white and milk chocolate chunks until they’re dotted throughout.

    Pour the mixture into the prepared tin, scraping every bit out of the bowl with the spatula. Gently ease the mixture into the corners of the tin and paddle the spatula from side to side across the top to level it.

    Put in the oven and set your timer for 25 mins. When the buzzer goes, open the oven, pull the shelf out a bit and gently shake the tin. If the brownie wobbles in the middle, it’s not quite done, so slide it back in and bake for another 5 minutes until the top has a shiny, papery crust and the sides are just beginning to come away from the tin. Take out of the oven.

    Leave the whole thing in the tin until completely cold, then, if you’re using the brownie tin, lift up the protruding rim slightly and slide the uncut brownie out on its base. If you’re using a normal tin, lift out the brownie with the foil. Cut into quarters, then cut each quarter into four squares and finally into triangles.

    They’ll keep in an airtight container for a good two weeks and in the freezer for up to a month.

    Ratings & Reviews

    Easy and tasty!

    This is really super easy to make: just mix the ingredients, add the topping, bake and enjoy. The possibilities for tweaking to your taste are endless, though it tastes great as written. Use different cr eam soups, switch up the type of cheese, add other ingredients like ham or peppers. it’s up to you and will probably still taste great. My personal favorite is to add cooked chopped bacon, either in with the other casserole ingredients or sprinkled across the top.

    Crock pot style

    I have made these in my crockpot for years. just add the cheese to the mixture instead of using as a topping. Cook on low for 6 hrs. My family beg for these at large functions. So easy and I am the hero!

    Easy and easily tweaked

    Easily tweaked for your own individual preferences. I usually make a more “tex-Mex” version with chopped jalepenos, onions, green chili’s and end with adding cool salsa on top. Also when cauliflower i s in season and cheaper, I often parboil and chop and substitute it for the hash browns. And when we are traveling and in the RV, I also have used the little cartons( like the old milk containers) of the dehydrated “diner style” hash browns. They rehydrate and are very close to fresh. I also keep some of those on hand at home in case company drops in and I need to toss a meal together. Never gotten a complaint from anyone, for any version! And any version can be made, with a bit of imagination, with what you have in your cupboards or pantry. And as an added plus, when I substitute the cauliflower I can “sneak” an extra veggie in on the Grandkiddos. Experiment, have fun with it! A great base recipe that is easy to make into your families favorite.

    Sink your teeth into a delicious restaurant-style, hamburger recipe made from lean beef. Skip the prepackaged patties and take the extra time to craft up your own, and that little extra effort will be worth it. To make cheeseburgers, about 1 minute before burgers are done, top with sliced cheese continue cooking until cheese begins to melt.


    How to Make It

    In a bowl, mix ground beef,egg and onion, bread crumbs, Worcestershire, garlic, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper until well blended. Divide mixture into four equal shape and portions each into a patty about 4 inches wide.

    Lay burgers on an oiled barbecue grill over a solid bed of hot coals or high heat on a gas grill (you can hold your hand at grill level only 2 to 3 seconds) close lid on gas grill. Cook burgers, turning once, until browned on both sides and no longer pink inside (cut to test), 7 to 8 minutes total. Remove from grill.

    Lay buns, cut side down, on grill and cook until lightly toasted, 30 seconds to 1 minute.

    Spread mayonnaise and ketchup on bun bottoms. Add lettuce, tomato, onion and burger and salt and pepper to taste. Set bun tops in place.

    If you want absolute bacteria safety, you need to cook your burgers to 160°. This recipe will keep them moist.

    Meat for Hamburgers

    A great hamburger recipe has very few ingredients so we always make sure to have the best quality possible!

    I start with ground chuck. This is a recipe I want to make sure I have a little bit of fat so I use an 80/20 mix. There is enough fat in the burger to keep it juicy yet not so much that it’ll just have flare ups. The fat adds great flavor and a great texture to this recipe!

    A 90/10 mix can result in a dry hamburger. Add some finely chopped bacon or even a tablespoon or so of olive oil if it’s all you have on hand! If you have a great hamburger or cheeseburger recipe, you’ll be legendary at home and in the neighborhood for sure,

    How to Make Hamburgers

    ! This simple technique ensures burger success every single time, whether you use a grill or the stovetop!

  • GRILL OR PAN FRY: Follow the directions below to either grill or cook on the stove.
  • The recommends cooking ground beef to a temperature of 160°F (test your patties with a meat thermometer). Let them rest a few minutes before serving with a, toppings and condiments toasted bun!

    If you are using a gas grill, the thickness of the burger and the temperature of the grill makes all the difference in how long to cook it. Make sure your grill is preheated to cook and medium the burgers about 4 to 5 minutes on each side. Let them rest about 5 minutes before serving. Doesn’t mean the inside is fully cooked, just because the outside looks cooked. If it’s cooked,

    How to tell: The best method to tell if beef burgers are cooked all the way is to use a meat thermometer. Insert the thermometer into the thickest part of the patty and check for an internal temperature of 160°F (or just a few degrees before). Remember, meat continues to cook a little bit once it’s been removed from its heat source.

    Beef burgers are easy to cook on the stove!

    1. Using a cast iron or heavy skillet, form patties and place in the skillet over medium heat.
    2. Allow them to fry and form a crust on one side and then flip them and cook until they are cooked.
    3. Test for doneness with a meat thermometer and remove from pan.

    What to Put on a Burger

    The best burger recipe always has a selection of tasty condiments and toppings. Hamburger recipes are the ultimate ‘build-your-own’ meal because no two burgers have to be the same!
