Serves 5 | Prep Time | Cook Time


A large stock pot 3/4's full of water
3 chicken wings, legs or thighs ( Bone in w/ skin off preferably)
Lipton, Wylers or Ramen noodle seasoning pkts to taste
Chicken bullion cubes 5-8 aprox (depends on your tastes)
Some celery leaves and 1/2 a stalk
Parsley flakes about 5 shakes or a lil more
Cilantro flakes couple shakes
3 yellow cooking onions peeled and cut in 1/2 (I like them whole better) If you have fresh chives growing add a handful a decrease onion by 1
2 large potatoes for each person eating cut in large bite size pieces
2 large carrots for each person eating cut in bite size chunks
1 clove garlic or garlic powder
2-3 handfuls wide egg noodles (amount varies depending on amount of available broth)
Opt: couple handfuls snow peas add before noodles
Opt: leftover cooked dry beans add before noodles
Opt: rutabaga add w/ potatoes

Put chicken, celery, parsley flakes, cilantro, garlic, wylers, lipton or Ramen seasoning pkgs, 3 bullion cubes and onions into pot (put chicken in metal strainer in the pot to stop from having to fish bones out by hand :) )

Bring to a boil then simmer for 'bout 1 hr

Take out chicken and any globs left over from the chicken

Taste and add more wylers, lipton or ramen seasoning to taste (you want it just a tad salty because potatoes will soak up some of the salt but dont add too much salt!!!)

Add a couple more chicken bullion if needed

Add potatoes to pot

In separate pot boil the carrots for bout 10- 15 mins strain and add to soup (carrots can add bitter taste to soup so thats why the preboil)

Cont simmering until veggies are soft

Add egg noodles (don't add too many or they will soak up all the broth!!!)

Simmer for 'bout 10 more mins than shut off heat. Let it sit 'till noodles are done (by shutting off heat it helps the noodles not turn to mush be careful not to stir to hard too)

Can use this recipe for turkey soup too. Some people add a few shakes of pepper. I don't really like pepper in my soup but its said to help w/congestion

*NOTE: Make sure to cup hands around cup/bowl and breath in steam for a few mins if your congested.

Bone soups are very good for you and chicken soups are still used as medicine in many households including ours! This version,my mothers version 'Barb Fankhauser's chicken soup' And my Great Grandmas "Linda Williamson's Carcass Soup" are very good for colds and flu! It even helps sick animals by the dropperful :)
