Best Chicken Noodle Soup
Why I Love This Recipe
Ingredients You'll Need
* 1 tablespoon dried rosemary, crushed
* 2 teaspoons garlic powder
* 2 teaspoons pepper
* 2 teaspoons seasoned salt
* 2 broiler/fryer chickens (3 to 3-1/2 pounds each)
* 5 cups chicken broth
* 2-1/4 cups sliced fresh mushrooms
* 1/2 cup chopped celery
* 1/2 cup sliced carrots
* 1/2 cup chopped onion
* 1/4 teaspoon pepper
* 2-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
* 1 teaspoon salt
* 2 eggs
* 1 can (5 ounces) evaporated milk
* 1 tablespoon Crisco® Light Olive Oil
Combine the first four ingredients; rub over chickens. Place in an ungreased 13-in. x 9-in. baking pan. Cover and bake at 350° for 1-1/4 hours or until a meat thermometer reads 180°. Drain and reserve drippings. Skim fat. When cool enough to handle, remove meat from bones; discard bones. Cut meat into bite-size pieces. Cover and refrigerate chicken.
In a Dutch oven or soup kettle, bring chicken broth and reserved drippings to a boil. Add the mushrooms, celery, carrots, onion and pepper; simmer for 30 minutes or until vegetables are tender.
In a large bowl, combine flour and salt. Make a well in the center. Beat egg and milk; pour into well. Stir together, forming a dough. Turn dough onto a floured surface; knead 8-10 times. Divide into thirds. Roll out each portion to 1/8-in. thickness; cut to desired width.
Freeze two portions to use at another time. Bring soup to a boil. Add one portion of noodles; cook for 7-9 minutes or until noodles are almost tender. Add chicken; heat through. Yield: 10 servings (2-3/4 quarts).
