Chicken noodle soup

This is a good soup to make on the weekend. Save time on weeknights and use boneless chicken, which cooks in about 20 minutes. Makes 6 servings.

What you'll need:

How to fix it:

  1. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in large pot. Add onion, celery and carrots. Stir until onion softens, about 3 minutes.
  2. Add chicken pieces and 10 cups water. Cover, bring to boil, reduce heat and simmer until chicken is cooked through, about 2 hours. You can boost the flavor by adding a can of chicken broth or a couple of chicken bouillon cubes to the water. (This will add to the cost slightly, and will also increase the calories, fat and sodium content.)
  3. With soap and water, wash hands, counter surfaces and equipment that came into contact with raw chicken.
  4. Use tongs or slotted spoon to remove cooked chicken pieces from broth. Cool. Pull meat from chicken and return to broth.
  5. Use a spoon to skim fat from surface of broth (fat will rise to surface).
  6. Add pasta. Bring to boil and cook, uncovered, about 6 minutes.
  7. Ladle into soup bowls.
  8. Refrigerate or freeze leftovers within 2 hours of cooking. If refrigerated, use within 2 days. To reheat, bring to a boil.


Each of the six servings contains:
