Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup With Garlic-chili Mojo

Recipe by Sharon123

Chicken soup is not only good for a cold, it may help prevent one! You can garnish with thin slices of ginger, garlic, lemon, or jalapeno pepper for extra immune support. This is from Delicious Living magazine. You can make the homemade stock or use chicken broth instead. Cook time does not include making stock.

I adore this soup!! It is the best chicken noodle (rice pasta macaroni) soup I have ever made. I did tone down the cayenne (used about 1/4 of the amount called for) and loved the mojo mixture drizzled in. The ginger definitely does something for the soup. I kept adding more of the spice mixture until it was quite spicy for my taste. DD (toddler) enjoyed the soup as well with a little mojo too. I did the whole deal including making the stock out of white chicken parts like wings and a whole carcass with some meat still on it, necks etc. Just used the white meat in the soup. I changed nothing else and would make this again!!!
