Chicken soup is something that everyone can get behind. But it’s not as hard as you think it is to make. In fact, here’s one of the best chicken noodle soup recipes that you’ll ever find, and you can make it in less than 30 minutes.
For this recipe, you’ll need carrots, a medium white onion, celery, frozen corn, olive oil, garlic, fresh ginger, salt, pepper, basil, parsley, two chicken breasts and the pasta of your choice. This is an easy recipe because there are no measurements. You just have to eyeball everything, and don’t worry because it will turn out fine.
To start, add a few tablespoons of olive oil to a large Dutch oven. Put it on medium high heat on the stove and add your chicken breasts. Cook them until they’re done and set them aside. Add your diced onion, carrots and celery to the oil. You may need to have a little bit more oil as well.
Sauté these veggies until the onions are translucent. At this point, add a few cloves of garlic and a little bit of fresh ground ginger. Sauté this for one minute further. Add four to eight cups of chicken stock to the pot and turn to high. Now, you can add your frozen corn, salt and pepper and other spices. Basil and parsley are great dried spices to add at this point, but that’s up to you. You can also add the few red pepper flakes to give the soup a little kick.
You’ll be bringing the soup to a boil at this point. While you wait for the soup to boil, shred your cooled chicken, removing any fat, grizzle and bones. Once your soup reaches a boil, you can put the chicken in, cover the pot and turn down the heat. You’ll want your soup to cook for approximately 20 to 30 min. In the last 5 to 10 minutes of cooking, add the pasta of your choice and cook until the pasta is done. Fresh parsley or basil can be added at this point as a kind of garnish. This is a great soup that’s healthy and delicious.
