Sylvia's Chicken Noodle Soup

Janis there are a few Chicken Noodle Soup recipes on the Recipe Message Boards under Stews and Soups, I like this one because I know it freezes well, useful for those Man-flu days!

Sylvia's Chicken Noodle Soup
6 Servings
Because it can be frozen, it's a meal-in-one you can take out of the freezer and reheat in minutes. (this will keep satisfactorily in the freezer for 2 months)

1.5kg whole chicken
4 carrots
3 celery sticks
3 onions
2 bay leaves
1 tbsp vegetable oil
1 leek, sliced
1 garlic clove, chopped
100g dried egg noodles
2cm piece fresh ginger, grated
Chopped fresh parsley leaves and spring onions, to serve

Put the chicken in a large pan with 2 carrots and 2 celery sticks, all roughly chopped, 2 onions, quartered, and the bay leaves. Add about 2.5 litres water, to cover the chicken and veg. Bring to the boil, skim off any fat and simmer for 1 hour. Remove the chicken and strain the stock, discarding the solids.

Heat the oil in a large pan over a medium heat. Add the leek, garlic and remaining carrots, cut into cubes, and the remaining onion and celery stick, both finely chopped. Cook for 5 minutes, until tender. Add 2 litres of the strained broth and bring to the boil, then reduce the heat to low and simmer gently for 10 minutes.

Remove the skin and strip the meat from the chicken. Tear the meat into bite-size pieces and add to the soup. Remove from the heat and serve.
