Chicken Noodle Soup With Homemade Noodles

My girls were sick today, so I went on a hunt for a good homemade chicken noodle soup recipe and found this one from Pam at For the Love of Cooking. It was delicious, and everyone loved the homemade noodles! She blogs:

Making homemade noodles is really easy to do and it makes a really good soup even better. I always add extra noodles to the soup because my kids love them. Make sure to dry them out for at least an hour before adding them to the soup. I served this with hot crusty bread and butter.

  • 8 cups homemade chicken stock (or store bought)
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1/2 onion diced
  • 1-2 cloves of garlic diced finely
  • 1 1/2 cups of carrots diced
  • 3 stalks of celery diced
  • 2 tsp good chicken bouillon (I use Herb Ox)
  • 1 bay leaf
  • Sea Salt and fresh cracked pepper, to taste
  • 1/2 tsp dried thyme or basil
  • 1 1/2 cup cooked chicken diced (I use meat from leftover roasted chicken)
  • Fresh parsley, chopped
Sauté onions in olive oil until soft, about 3-4 minutes. Add garlic & cook for 30 seconds. Add broth & the remainder of ingredients. Cook over medium low heat for 1-2 hours.


  • 2 cups of flour
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 to 1/3 cup of milk
In mixing bowl combine flour, salt, egg and milk. Mix until you produce a slightly sticky ball of dough. Flour the counter and roll out dough to 1/8 inch thickness. You want them very thin because they thicken when cooked. Cut noodles (I use a pizza cutter) to desired size and place on wax paper. Let the noodles dry out on the counter for at least 1 hour before adding them to the soup.
About 30 minutes before serving soup, drop noodles in and cook. Add some fresh chopped parsley right before serving. Enjoy.

We're Live!

Hello Ladies! After the success of our Monday Recipe Swap, I think we all agreed a community recipe blog would be a good idea. Well...skadoosh! Here it is!

Please feel free to add your favorite recipes (with pictures, if you can!) so we can all enjoy. Also, please label your recipes so we can search for them later. I am thinking we should all use basic labels, like "dinner," "dessert," "side dish," "soup," "salad," "bread," etc., to keep everything uniform. Happy posting and good eating!
