A simple, easy to make, comfort food. Especially good with a fresh baguette.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 3 -4 chicken breasts (small to medium, skinless and boneless)
  • 10 -12 cups chicken broth
  • 2 cups carrots, crinkle cut
  • 1 cup celery, diced
  • 12 teaspoon garlic (minced, dehydrated)
  • 6 ounces dried noodles (old fashioned or Amish style is best)


  1. Cut chicken into small cubes and boil in broth for about 30 minutes. Or until the "scum" can be skimmed off the top.
  2. After skimming the broth return it to stove top and add remaining ingredients except the noodles.
  3. Return the soup to boiling, cover and simmer for about 3 hours on low.
  4. Add noodles and cook till they are tender.

This is a very tasty soup that is easy to put together! I made 2 servings and they are quite generous! I used organic chicken broth and chose orzo for the pasta. I took off 1 star for a couple of reasons that have nothing to do with flavour - it is really hard to get rid of all the 'floaties' from cooking the chicken in the broth, even with using a fine mesh spoon. I also cooked everything for much less time (15 minutes for step 1 and 1 hour for step 3) and my veggies still turned out mushy. I will make this again, but with a couple of minor adjustments. Made for my adopted chef for this round of Pick A Chef. Thanks Chef Larz! :)
