Smoked chicken soup

  1. So I got excited about the deal I got on the chicken (buck a lb) and smoked a 9lb bird LMAO (for just me and the wife). For those who missed that bird here is the thread

    Anyway back to the soup. I started with the bones, skin, and all the non-chewable bits. To this I added garlic, chicken bullion, onion, celery, carrot, parsley, and enough water to just cover all.

    I set all of this on the stove and simmered for around 4 hours (the house smelled awesome).

    I used big chunks for the stock boil so it was easy to strain

    Nice clear broth to start my soup

    To this I added all the cut up chicken (well not all we had a couple chick salad sammies) and I cut some fresh veg into bite size pieces. (sorry no pics of veg)

    Added a ton more parsley coursely chopped and some extra onion (love the onion)

    Ready to add my noodles

    I didn't have a good noodle recipe so I just busted up some spag. (If anyone has a good noodle recipe I would be much obliged)[​IMG]

    Just in case anyone wants to try this I would suggest doing your noodle seperate and add them as you like. I did mine in the soup and they sucked up almost all the broth from the left over soup.

    Soup came out awesome I made a couple of sammies to go with and we had us a real good feed.

    Thanks for looking

    Great looking soup, planning on making some buttermilk chicken from another post and now going to make this soup from leftovers if we have any. If not, this is another good reason to smoke another bird.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Great looking soup. My wife and I always fight over the noodles. I like to big Papardele noodles and she likes the real thin vermachelli style. Both are good. I almost always cook soup noodles in store bought broth and then add both to the soup
