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.
