I posted a picture last night on my own personal Facebook page of a bowl of homemade chicken noodle soup.
A couple of friends wanted me to share the recipe so here it is:
Seriously there’s 13 spices in this chicken rub but don’t let that deter you from trying this recipe.
What you will end up with is the most tender chicken you have ever had simmered with flavour and my family loves it.
Now depending on the size of the bird you get this recipe make an excellent left-over meal.
The first night we enjoyed the roasted chicken with a side of spinach and strawberry salad.
to make the 13 spice chicken rub
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp basil
1 tsp rosemary
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp mustard powder
1/2 tsp paprika
1/8 tsp powdered chicken broth
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp thyme
1/4 tsp celery seed
1/4 tsp parsley
1/8 tsp cumin
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
I did not create this recipe because if I did I probably would’ve omitted the cayenne pepper fearing that little bit would make the soup too hot!
(Silly I know!)
Normally I double or triple this recipe depending on the size of the chicken.
I can’t give proper credit to whoever created this recipe but it’s sure is good!
We had some leftover chicken so I had already planned on making a batch of homemade chicken noodle soup.
When you were roasting chicken it’s important to make sure that you keep all of the drippings and bones because you can use that for the soups chicken broth for flavour. I scraped the side of my roasting pan and put all of it in the fridge over night.
Make sure to scrape off the extra fat!
Simmer the chicken carcass in a pot with about 10 cups of water for about an hour hour and a half.
Scoop out all of the bones make sure that you keep all of the yummy pieces of chicken meat in the pot.
add this to the broth to make the soup
1/2 package Small noodles (for a healthier option use whole wheat)
2 stalks of celery chopped
2 carrots coined
1/2 medium onion chopped
Will you can use any combination of vegetables you want and you can substitute rice for noodle.
I’m just not a fan of chicken rice soup.
Simmer the soup until the vegetables are soft and the noodles are cooked as you like.
Do you make homemade soup?
what is your favorite homemade soup?
I love how easy this sounds to make and yet I know it will still be tasty. Chicken Noodle soup is one of my favorites!
I am going to have to try this!

That sounds like a fantastic recipe for chicken noodle soup.
I am thanking the Lord for the few mieutns I had this morning, between laundry, lunch, and lessons for my five babies, to sit and soak in this post. Thank you for taking the time to share it. I don’t know what the Lord has ahead of us in specifics, but I am trusting that He has us in His hands. Thank you for the encouragement to continue to TRUST!!!! That doesn’t always come naturally for me. Thank you <3~Angela

I cannot eat chicken enough ways!
Debbie Denny says
This is the perfect soup for any day!
sounds nice, could use this today to keep warm – it’s freezing out!
We love homemade soup in our house. I actually just finished some chicken and rice soup. When I make chicken noodle though, I don’t season the chicken. I bet this is extra good! Thanks for sharing.
I am definitely not deterred. I have all of these spices in my pantry and this recipe looks great.

My kids are huge fans of chicken noodle soup but they don’t like it from the can. I may be trying this during our next cold snap.

This sounds fabulous! What a great combination with your spinach and strawberry salad especially during the January freeze we’ve had in northern New England!
Amy Lynn Desrosiers says
Thank you for this recipe! We are all about the spice, and appreciate it! It looks like the perfect winter meal too!
we do the same thing- when we roast a chicken we get as big as we can….then less cooking all week! i usually simmer the bones and stuff for several hours before straining the broth
