“If you don't have time to make the stock, use 2 to 3 boxes of chicken broth. Bring broth to boil; add 2 to 3 boneless skinless chicken breasts diced, and 1 teaspoon granulated garlic; cook 10 to 15 minutes. Then follow the steps for the soup.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. STOCK:
  2. Place the chicken, carrots, celery, onion, and garlic in a large stockpot over medium heat.
  3. Pour in only enough cold water to cover (about 3 quarts); too much will water will make the broth taste weak.
  4. Add the peppercorns; allow it to slowly come to a boil.
  5. Lower the heat to medium-low and gently simmer for 1 to 1-1/2 hours, partially covered, until the chicken is done.
  6. As it cooks, skim any impurities that rise to the surface; add a little more water if necessary to keep the chicken covered while simmering.
  7. Carefully remove the chicken to a cutting board.
  8. When chicken is cool enough to handle, discard skin and bones and shred the meat by hand; set aside.
  9. Carefully strain the stock through a fine sieve into another pot to remove the vegetable solids.
  10. SOUP:
  11. Bring stock back to boil.

  13. Add parsley, pepper and egg noodles; cook for another 10 minutes.
  14. When noodles are done add chicken.
