Treat your ingredients with care...

  • Chicken — Make sure to remove the skin before cooking to reduce the fat content.
  • Egg noodles — Cook the noodles separately and add them to the soup just before serving to prevent them from becoming too soft.

Tips & Tricks

  • For added flavor, you can sauté the vegetables in a bit of butter before adding them to the soup.
  • If you prefer a thicker soup, you can add a tablespoon of flour to the vegetables before adding the broth.
  • Feel free to customize the soup by adding other vegetables such as peas or corn.
  • To make the soup more filling, you can add cooked rice or diced potatoes.
