Thank you for a great Carmel Winter Farmers Market season! We will see you beginning on May 4th at the Carmel Farmers Market and the Fishers Farmers Market!

Chicken and Noodle (or Rice) Soup

We eat a lot of soup in our family and what is more comforting than homemade chicken and noodle soup?!  Enjoy!


~3 c cooked, diced chicken

1 TBSP oil

1 to 1 ½ c each of chopped onion, celery, & carrot

S/P to taste (if using homemade stock, you will need to add ~2-3 tsp of salt, maybe more, depending on your tastes)

~8 c each of stock & water (for homemade stock; omit the water and use the equivalent amount of additional stock if using store-bought stock)

~2 tsp dried parsley (or ~3 TBSP fresh chopped parsley)

1 ½ to 2 c brown rice (or ~3/4 bag of noodles)


Heat oil over medium-heat in a 6-quart stockpot; add vegetables and sweat for ~10 minutes, or until tender, stirring occasionally.  Add stock/water and increase heat to bring to a boil.  Add noodles or rice (depending on which you are using), chicken,and parsley.  Reduce heat and simmer until noodles/rice have reached the desired tenderness.  Season with salt and pepper to taste.
