Chicken noodle soup is, without a doubt, the ultimate comfort food. This delicious, hot soup is a favorite for all ages on a sick day, during the coldest months of the year, or simply as an easy meal.
While it might seem tempting to grab a can of the pre-made stuff, why not try making your own chicken noodle soup at home the next time you have a craving for it? Here are three hacks that will help you craft the perfect pot.
Use Egg Noodles
My favorite type of pasta to use in chicken noodle soup is thick egg noodles. This pasta, which is especially rich and melt-in-your mouth, absorbs the flavors of the chicken broth and ups the flavor quotient of the soup by a ton!
Make Your Own Stock
Instead of using a pre-packaged chicken broth or stock, why not try making your own? Simply use the bones and skin of the chicken that you end up adding to your soup can make a wonderful, fragrant broth that will take your soup’s flavor to the next level.
My only complaint about chicken noodle soup is that it can sometimes end up being too soft and bland in my mouth. How do I fix this? When making chicken noodle soup, I find that the addition of chopped onion is a great way to add a little bit of flavor, crunch, and texture to the finished product.
