So it's happened. I suppose it was bound to, sooner or later. It still makes me sad, though. See, I started this blog as a chance to share my favorite recipes, keep myself on track with menu planning, and try out some new recipes. Some of the recipes in my menu plans are my standards and a couple per week are new recipes that I want to try. I am pretty particular about what recipes I choose and, up until now, all of those new recipes have been great! For example, Keema, Antipasto Calzones, and Creamy Poppyseed Chicken were all new recipes when I put them on the menu and I thought they all turned out fantastic.
However, this week's Chicken Noodle Soup was a disappointment. It's not that it was inedible, it's just that the flavor was a bit off and it just wasn't a recipe I would like to try again, or even save the leftovers. Here is the link to the recipe if you'd like to take a crack at it, but I would like to suggest using your chicken carcass to make a more traditional chicken noodle soup:
Place the chicken carcass in stock pot and cover with water. Simmer, uncovered, for a couple of hours, until chicken is falling off the bone. Strain out bones and fat/foam. Stir in chopped carrots, celery and onion and add a Tbsp of chicken granules, salt, pepper, oregano, and basil (and any other desired seasonings) to taste. Add noodles, whatever kind you like in your soup. Cook for about 15 minutes, until pasta and veggies are tender.
This is just a basic soup base, you can add any additional vegetables or seasonings you would like. My husband even likes to add some Tabasco for a little kick!
