  • 2 1/2 pounds bone-in chicken thighs
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

DIRECTIONS
  1. Pat chicken dry with paper towels; sprinkle with salt and pepper. In a stockpot, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add chicken in batches, skin side down, cook until dark golden brown, or 3-4 minutes. Remove chicken from pan and remove and discard skin. Discard drippings, reserving 2 tablespoons.
  2. Add onion to drippings; cook and stir over medium-high heat until tender, 4-5 minutes. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer. Add broth, stirring to loosen browned bits from pan. Bring to a boil. Return chicken to pan. Add celery, carrots, bay leaves and thyme. Reduce heat; simmer, covered, until chicken is tender, 25-30 minutes.
  3. Move chicken to a plate. Remove soup from heat. Add noodles; let stand, covered, until noodles are tender, 20-22 minutes.
  4. Remove meat from bones. Shred meat into bite-sized pieces. Return meat to stockpot. Stir in parsley and lemon juice. If desired, adjust seasoning with additional salt and pepper. Discard bay leaves.
