Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup
2 quarts chicken broth
4 cups shredded chicken
1 cup chopped onion
2 cups baby carrots, cut up
2 large parsnips, peeled, cored, and chopped
2 teaspoons minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon pepper
2 cups uncooked medium egg noodles
1/4 cup fresh dill, snipped
2 Tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
Put broth, chicken, celery, onion, carrots, parsnips, garlic, and pepper in a large pot. Cover and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 40 minutes or until all vegetables are tender. Add noodles, cover, and simmer for another 15 minutes. Add fresh dill and parsley and serve immediately.
Serve with bread, slices of sharp cheddar cheese, and apple cider.
This soup was adapted from my grandmother's recipe--but I left out the two peeled and chopped turnips because no one in my family will eat them.
