Four Generation Chicken Noodle Soup


Cover a whole chicken with water and simmer with:
salt & pepper
1 whole onion
1 rib of celery
1 carrot
2 or 3 bay leaves
Simmer for 2 hours. Cool chicken, skin and cut into bite sized pieces. Discard vegetables and bay leaves, skim fat. Season broth with garlic salt, table salt and pepper to taste. Add bite-sized chicken pieces, freshly chopped celery and carrots and noodles.
Homemade noodles:
1 cup flour
1 egg
1/2 tsp. salt
Enough cream (or milk) to fill 1/2 an eggshell.
Beat egg slightly with a fork. Add cream and stir. Stir in flour and salt. Knead gently; roll out on floured surface. Cut into thin strips with pizza cutter. (The noodles will expand as they cook...so thin strips are best!) Add to soup and cook at least 45 minutes.
**Note: I usually double or triple the noodles...they are the best part!
**In a pinch...use canned chicken broth and stewed chicken pieces. Throw in chopped vegetables and homemade noodles. No one needs to know you didn't make your own chicken stock!

Ok, I definitely need to try those noodles. Maybe I can do this. I love recipes with measurements like 'fill half of an eggshell.' Just gives it that old family recipe feel.

Hello I am Celia's friend and I just checked out your blog. Thanks for the chicken soup recipe. It sounds delicous and seeing how I just got a cold what better way to nurse myself to good healthy then some healthy chicken noodle soup.

Hello there Miss Gobby-
Thank you for the clarification. I assumed that it was Gaaaby..silly me. I forget that I'm not the only one with a unique name. And I'm with you- I have Jonathan, Julia, & Andrew for the same reasons you have your kids names...easy to read, write, say, etc, etc. My sister is Jessica though and she hated being one of 1500 Jessicas. And my brother is Tony- kind of middle of the road (not too common but people have heard of it). Anyway, glad to know the truth of it.
Hope you and Marta are having a blast- can't wait to hear more about her trip!
