By Eniolá Abdulroqeeb Arówólò

Chicken noodle soup is a comforting dish that’s perfect for warming up on a cold day or when you’re feeling under the weather. It’s also a simple and delicious meal that you can make from scratch at home. In this guide, I’ll walk you through how to prepare a homemade chicken noodle soup that’s both hearty and full of flavor.

Ingredients:

* boneless, skinless chicken breasts

* Chicken broth

* Carrots, peeled and chopped

* Celery stalks, chopped

* Onion, diced

* Cloves of garlic, minced

* Bay leaf

* Dried thyme

* Dried oregano

* Egg noodles

* Salt and pepper to taste

* Fresh parsley, chopped (for garnish)

Instructions:

Step 1: Prepare the Chicken

1. Begin by seasoning the chicken breasts with salt and pepper.

2. In a large pot, heat a bit of olive oil over medium-high heat.

3. Add the chicken breasts and cook for about 4-5 minutes on each side until they’re browned and cooked through.

4. Remove the chicken from the pot and set it aside to cool.

Step 2: Saute the Vegetables

5. In the same pot, add a bit more oil if needed, and then add the chopped onions, carrots, celery, and garlic.

6. Sauté the vegetables for about 5-7 minutes until they start to soften.

Step 3: Add the Broth and Seasonings

7. Pour in the chicken broth.

8. Add the bay leaf, dried thyme, and dried oregano to the pot.

9. Bring the broth to a boil.

10. Reduce the heat and let it simmer for about 20-25 minutes, allowing the flavors to meld.

Step 4: Shred the Chicken

11. While the broth is simmering, shred the cooled chicken breasts using two forks.

Step 5: Add Noodles and Chicken

12. Once the vegetables are tender and the broth is well-flavored, add the shredded chicken back into the pot.

13. Add the egg noodles and cook for the time specified on the noodle package, usually around 7-9 minutes.

Step 6: Season to Taste

14. Taste the soup and adjust the seasoning with more salt and pepper if needed.
