The next time you want that comfort that comes with chicken noodle soup then give Erin’s healthy chicken noodle soup recipe a try. Chicken broth can easily be made at home so you can keep it even healthier since making your own will give you the luxury of knowing the exact ingredients.If you love to eat soups and are either vegetarian minded or a meat eater then preparing a broth for the week is a great idea. Buying premade broth is not the worst idea but if you make your own you are far better off. Many store bought broths contain chemicals in them to help keep the shelf life longer. Making your own broth is not only easy but gives you a heads up on what exactly is in them. If you buy an older chicken, which you can find at many grocery stores and are reasonably priced, this is best for making broth. You make the stock by filling the pot to cover the chicken and add some half cut onions and some whole carrots and celery and slowly boil the chicken until it comes apart easy.
Usually one and a half hours is sufficient. You then strain the broth, removing as much oil as possible, and you can refrigerate and even freeze the broth for future soups and other recipes that call for chicken broth to be added. Even if you are not a meat eater but a vegetarian then take carrots, celery, onions and any other veggie you love and cook and you will have a wonderful veggie broth. Having your own broth is usually much better than buying a premade one. If you add some light cream then you can achieve the creamy part of Erin’s soup. You can always leave out the cream to keep it healthier. Cream adds flavor but unfortunately adds fat that might not be the best thing for you and your diners. Always use the best part of any recipe and omit or add anything you feel warrants a change.
