Spicy Chicken Noodle Soup

Soup season is in full effect and I hope this recipe not only warms your bones but your spirit too!


Ingredients:

  • 8-10 pieces of Chicken Drumsticks or 4-5 Quarter legs

  • 2 Heads of fresh broccoli or 1 bag of frozen broccoli

  • 2-3 cups of chopped celery

  • 2-3 cups of chopped carrots

  • 6-8 sliced baby potatoes

  • 2-3 cups of fresh green beans

  • 2-3 cups of chopped red onion

  • 1 bunch of green onions

  • 2-3 fresh corn on the cob

  • 1 bag of egg noodles

  • 2 table spoons of garlic

  • Salt to taste

  • Pepper to taste

  • 1 stick of butter

  • 1 cup of chopped white onion

  • 1 cup of chopped Jalapeño peppers

  • Cilantro to taste 

Note:

This recipe can feed up to 8-10 people depending on portion size.

 

Steps:

  1. Clean and prepare chicken as you desire.

  2. Find the biggest boiler you have and fill it up halfway with water.

  3. Season chicken with salt, pepper and pepper to taste. Place seasoned chicken and one stick of butter in the boiler, cover with lid, and allow to cook on medium to low heat until the chicken is halfway done. This should take about 45 minutes- an hour.

  4. While the chicken is cooking, chop up the celery, red onions, garlic, potatoes, carrots, broccoli, and green onion (Do not discard the end part of the green onion- this belongs in the soup as well)! Cut the corn on the cob into three or four smaller pieces.

  5. Once the chicken is halfway done (you can tell my sticking fork through the chicken with no problem but the texture will still look raw), add in the fresh veggies you just chopped, your other fresh/ frozen veggies, and the two tablespoons of garlic. along with more salt and pepper to taste. Stir the veggies in, turn the heat down a little lower and place the top back on the boiler.

  6. While the veggies and chicken are cooking, chop up your white onion, and jalapeño and sit to the side.

  7. Allow chicken and veggies to cook for another 15- 20 minutes and check on the soup. At this point, the chicken should be falling off the bone. Feel free to remove the bones as you stir the pot and taste your broth! Ensure you have enough seasoning.

  8. Add in egg noodles and allow soup to cook on medium heat for another 7-10 minutes. (The noodles take little to no time).

  9. Once you've distributed the soup in individual bowls, sprinkle pieces of the chopped jalapeño, onion, and cilantro on each bowl before serving.

 

Last Notes:

  • As you are cooking, you may have to continue to pour some of the water out in the sink as the veggies are going to create more water in the pot. Be careful and ensure that the broth doesn't boil over.

  • I do not give any specific seasoning because this soup truly has to be based on your family/ guest's taste or dietary needs.

  • Do not cook the last three ingredients! Those three have to be consumed raw on top of the soup for you to receive its natural benefits.

  • Feel free to save some of the extra chicken broth once the soup is gone! At this point, it's bone broth and bone broth is great for gut health!

  • Serve with some type of fresh toasted bread! This adds to the warmth of the dish.
