A Soup Kind Of Day

Yesterday morning when I looked out my kitchen window and saw that it was going to be this sort of day
gray, dreary, wet, snowy…I decided it would be a good day to stay inside and make some soup.

So that’s what I did. I’ve never actually bought a whole chicken (am I alone in this?? should I be embarrassed?? I feel like I should be…), but anyway, I bought a chicken and made Chicken Corn Noodle soup.

Here’s the big fella…
and here’s the end result. I made lots to freeze and although it took a long time to make, it was really easy.
PENNSYLVANIA DUTCH CHICKEN CORN NOODLE SOUP
1 Whole Chicken
4 Stalks of Celery
3 Carrots
2 Med. Onions
12 oz. Package of Frozen Corn
6 oz. Package Noodles
1/8 Cup Dried Parsley
Salt & Pepper to taste

Place chicken in large pot and cover with water; add salt and bring to boil.
Reduce heat and simmer for 1-1/2 hrs.
Slice celery and carrots and chop onions.
Remove chicken and set aside to cool.
Add celery, carrots, corn and onions to pot.
Remove chicken meat from bone. Add meat to pot.
Bring back to boil and simmer 20 min.
Add noodles and parsley.
Bring back to boil and simmer for 10 min.
Turn off heat and allow to sit for 15 min.
Add water or additional salt if needed.

Enjoy!

  1. You’re a Woman now that you’ve bought your first chicken, lol. 🙂 I grew up in Massachusetts but got hooked on the Ladies’ Auxiliary’s chicken corn soup when I went to college in Lancaster lo these many years ago. I make it now (in fact, I made it two weeks ago) but I cheat sometimes and use a pre-cooked rotisserie chicken. I do the rest from scratch (chicken broth from a can is scratch-enough) but don’t have to cook the chicken.
