Lazy Mom Chicken Corn and Noodle Soup
What you'll need:
2 pounds of boneless skinless chicken breasts
8 cups chicken stock (I used two of the quart sized ready made stocks)
1 cup baby carrots
2 stalks celery, cut into sticks
1 medium onion, cut into large chunks
1 tsp dried parsley
1 16oz bag of frozen sweet corn
4 hard boiled eggs
1 box of pasta shapes of your choice - my kids picked Gemelli today at the store
In a large crockpot place chicken, 1 quart of stock, carrots, celery, onion and dash of pepper.
Remove the chicken from the broth and place on a cutting board to cool. While the chicken is cooling, strain the broth into a large bowl to remove the large chunks of vegetables. My kids love carrots, so I cut them up and put them back into the soup. The onions and celery I tossed down the drain. If your family likes celery in their soup, by all means cut that up as well! :)
Put the strained broth back into the crockpot adding the other quart of stock to the mix. At this point I added my carrots back in. Cut or shred your chicken and put it back into the crockpot. Add your corn, eggs, parsley, and a little more black pepper. Turn the crockpot back on low and let it go until you are ready to serve.
|All done minus the noodles|
I told you it was the lazy version! Sometimes the best meals come from simple recipes :)
