It’s been a while since l last posted a soup recipe. So this one had to be a special recipe. And it surely is, a family favourite, loved by little ones and grown ups too, my easy homemade chicken noodle soup.

My little one is not quite into soups, l guess that’s one of the reason l don’t make soups as often as l used too, but since she loves noodles, l thought that would be a great idea. And what a soup this way, so soothing and filling. I must make this more often.

There will be thousands of recipes for chicken and noodle soups, and there is no right or wrong way, it is up to everyone’s taste really. You will find that in different cuisines different ingredients will be added, for instance, Asian-inspired recipes will no doubt add chilli, ginger and spring onions, others will just use basic ingredients. But you know what, they all taste amazing.

My soup has got a bit of veggies in it as well, to make it more colourful and rich. I also added a tad of tomato paste for a bit of sweetness. No fancy seasoning, just the basic salt and pepper, and that’s it, the most delicious soup. Have l told you about my Chicken soup with garlic and sour cream? It’s a bit different, byt also great in the cold season.

When it comes to chicken, you can add either shredded chicken that had been cook in advance, or you might like to go for chicken breast only, or whole chicken. It will also depend on the number of people you want to feed.

I opted for a poussin, which is a sort of tiny chicken, since I did not want to make too much soup, plus using a whole chicken brings a tiny bit of fat, and the flavour is enhanced. With soups it is better not to go for large amounts at once, as I personally find that they taste better when freshly made rather than reheated. Do give this soup a go, you will absolutely love it.
