Recipe Notes

CHICKEN NOODLE SOUP RECIPE TIPS Use chicken pieces with bones attached when starting the broth. It will create that rich, fully flavored soup you’re looking for. I usually use the carcass with some meat attached to it and the wings. Throw away most the veggies you used to make the broth and keep the carrots. You can skip some of the veggies I have listed above if you don’t like them. But keep in mind they are there just for flavor and if you’ll discard them after boiling, it’s like they were never there, right?!
