"Home style chicken noodle soup that really makes a wonderful side or meal, it cures what ails you. If you like lots of noodles use a whole pound of them. Serve hot with your favorite salad and bread. This freezes or doubles well."

  1. 1 gallon water

  2. 1 (4 pound) whole chicken, cut into pieces

  3. 1 large onion, peeled and halved

  4. 3 bay leaves

  5. 10 whole black peppercorns

  6. 2/3 bunch celery, leaves reserved

  7. 1 pound whole carrots

  8. 3 tablespoons chopped lemon grass (optional)

  9. 1/4 cup chicken bouillon powder

  10. 1 pound carrots, peeled and sliced

  11. 1/3 bunch celery, chopped and leaves reserved

  12. 1 (8 ounce) package dry egg noodles


  1. Place chicken and water in a large pot over high heat and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer, skimming fat as needed, 30 minutes.

  2. Place the halved onion, bay leaves, peppercorns, whole celery, whole carrots and lemon grass in the pot and simmer, covered 1 hour.

  3. Strain broth and reserve chicken. When chicken is cool enough to handle, remove skin and cut meat into bite-size pieces.

  4. Return strained stock to pot over high heat, and stir in chicken base, chopped celery and chopped carrots. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat, cover and simmer 20 minutes, or until carrots are tender.

  5. Chop celery leaves and stir into pot with the noodles. Simmer until noodles are cooked, about 10 minutes more. Stir in chicken and heat through.
