- Start by preparing your vegetables. Dice your onions, finely chop your celery and parsley and thinly slice your carrots and parsnips.
- Remove the skin from the chicken breast and place them in a Dutch oven. Add chicken
broth and bring to a boil. Skim away any foam that appears. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook chicken thoroughly. Once chicken is done
remove from broth and allow to cool before cutting. Cut chicken into bite sized pieces.
- Skim the fat from the broth once the chicken is removed. Bring your broth back to a boil and add onions, carrots, celery, parsnips and bouillon cubes. Reduce heat and simmer until vegetables are tender.
- Once vegetables are tender, add egg noodles and cook until they are done. Finally, add your bite sized pieces of chicken and parsley and allow to simmer enough to heat the meat. Your finally step is to
season your soup to taste with salt and pepper. Serve soup in
warm soup bowls with cheese toast.
