What ingredients are needed for chicken noodle soup?
2 lbs of Bone-in Chicken Breast
You can certainly use boneless; however, bone-in chicken breast will add more flavor to your stock.
We prefer to use egg noodles over other noodles because it tends to hold their texture & shape and doesn’t get mushy.
Fresh carrots are best for texture.
Since up a stalk or two for added flavor.
It gives the delicious stock flavor
Optional-add a teaspoon for an added delicious flavor.
