A hot chicken noodle soup is the classic comfort food for cool days or when feeling sick. It’s packed with nutrients like proteins and vitamins from vegetables, just what you need to boost your immunity and feel great in no-time.
Place the chicken in the soup pot and cover with water. Cook on the stove, on high heat. Bring to a rolling boil then turn the heat to medium. Continue cooking until the chicken is tender, for about 30 minutes. Add more water as needed to keep the chicken covered in water. Skim the soup periodically.
Meanwhile, clean the carrots and slice and peel the onion (chopping is optional). Add them to the pot half way through the cooking time for the chicken.
After the 30 minutes time frame, remove the chicken from the pot (and the onion if using it whole). Allow the chicken to cool then remove the meat from the bones and use in other recipes or return to the soup pot.
Meanwhile, add the noodles to the pot and cook as instructed on the noodle package. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Turn the heat off, add the chicken meat and sprinkle parsley. Serve hot or warm.
