Chicken & Veggie Noodle Soup

After a long and strenuous year, I’m finally taking some time off to kick back and recharge. If you can believe it, December has arrived! In the spirit of hot chocolates and fuzzy sweaters, a creamy chicken and veggie noodle soup is exactly what I have been needing. With so much on the line and so much to do this time of year, there is nothing like a weekend spent in the kitchen while marvellous chaos unravels in the living room. I love this time of year. And this creamy rich chicken soup recipe is only another reason to love it more.

Ingredients:

  • 1 large carrot, peeled and diced
  • 1 onion, peeled and chopped
  • 5 lasagna noodles cut up into small pieces (or noodles of choice, shell noodles would work great)
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced
  • 1 green bell pepper, diced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 6 cups chicken broth
  • 1 pound of boneless and skinless chicken, cooked
  • 1/2 cup 15% cooking cream
  • 2 handfuls baby spinach
  • 19oz (1 can) cannellini beans
  • 1 cup shredded parmesan
  • 1/4 cup whole milk
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 2 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1 tsp dried parsley
  • 1/2 tsp paprika powder
  • 4 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1 tsp sea salt

 

Directions:

1: In a large pot, melt butter over medium-high heat. Add in onions, garlic, carrots and bell peppers. Cook and stir for approximately 5 minutes.

2: Add flour to the mixture and continue stirring for a couple of seconds.

3: Pour in the chicken broth and then cornstarch. Turn heat down to low. Continually stir and add in oregano, salt, paprika powder and parsley for approximately 5 minutes. Add in cooked chicken, noodles and beans. Turn the heat up to maximum and let mixture come to a boil.

4: Once the mixture has come to a boil, turn the heat down to low and let simmer for 35 minutes, continually stirring. Once you are done, test to see if the noodles are cooked. They should be completely soft.

5: Add in the spinach, followed by the cooking cream and parmesan. Stir for another 2 minutes. Pour in milk – you can pour in as much as you need for your desired consistency. Continue seasoning to your desire.

Enjoy!

Love,

TM
