CHICKEN NOODLE SOUP
THIS CHICKEN SOUP IS VERY UNUSUAL AS IT STARTS WITH A ROTISSERIE CHICKEN. THE FLAVOR IS UNBELIEVABLE!!!
1 (2-lb) rotisserie chicken (GOOD WITH 3 LB COSTCO CHICKEN, TOO!)
2 celery ribs
1 medium onion, quartered and left unpeeled
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
10 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth (80 fl oz) (I USED 2C. WATER, 8C. REGULAR BROTH BUT WE ARE SALT LOVERS-USE LESS BROTH AND MORE WATER IF WATCHING SODIUM!!!)
4 medium carrots, peeled
Noodles, cooked separately (I used Schar GF)
Remove meat from chicken, reserving skin and bones. Coarsely chop 2 celery ribs and put them in a 6- to 8-quart pot along with chicken bones and skin, onion, chicken broth/water, carrots. Simmer, partially covered, 1 hour. While broth is simmering, chop white chicken meat into 1-inch cubes.
Strain soup, returning carrots and celery to your stock. Discard bones. Add your cooked (and cooled) noodles.
