Hearty Chicken & Potato Stew

Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup
2-3 c prepared chicken
8-10 c chicken stock
2 chicken bouillon cubes
3 carrots (diced or shredded)
3 celery stalks (diced)
1 onion (diced)
1 t basil
1 t oregano
1 t marjoram
1 bay leaf
salt & pepper to taste
1 pkg. wide egg noodles
fresh parsley
Prepared Chicken
You can do this a variety of ways - I like to roast my chicken first and then shred meat in chunky pieces. I place my chicken (6-8 pieces) on a baking sheet - drizzle with olive oil and season with kosher salt and cracked black pepper - roast @ 350 degrees for about 40 minutes. You may also poach your chicken in simmering stock or even use a rotisserie chicken for this delectable soup.
In a large dutch oven saute onions, carrots and celery in butter until tender. Add chicken stock, bouillon cubes, spices and seasonings - bring to a boil and then reduce heat. Stir in chicken and simmer for 30-45 minutes allowing all of the flavors to blend. Bring soup up to a boil again and add the egg noodles - cook until al dente and remove from heat. Serve garnished with fresh parsley.
For Homemade Chicken Stock see my post under Concetta's Recipes.
For a delicious twist on this soup try adding cubed potatoes and corn instead of the egg noodles making a hearty stew!

The Kitchenettes ~ A Hospitality Club

Romans 12:13
Pursue the practice of hospitality.

The Kitchenettes is all about teaching and mentoring young girls in the art of hospitality. It is so much more than cooking or doing domestic tasks ~ hospitality is the very heart of God ~ a demonstration of pouring His love onto others. This group of young girls are learning the very nature and character of God as they serve people and sharpen their skills in homemaking.
