I think – and I hope you will agree with me – nothing tastes better in the cold fall weather than a bowl of hot soup. Make it a chicken soup and it will be hard for you to stop feeling warm and cozy even if outside it is raining since the last week.
Should I also mention what soups, especially chicken soups, are very good for the digestive system, especially if body is weakened by recently or ongoing illness. What can be better for the upcoming flu-season?
Lets gather the ingredients and make tasty noodle soup: Chicken Soup with Egg Linguine, it is really easy after all.
- 2 rock cornish game hens (without giblets), about 2.5lb-2.75lb
- 2-3 carrots
- 1 onion
- 1 parsley root or parsnip
- 2 potatoes
- Small bowl of egg linguine
- Fresh herbs: parsley, you may also add dill if you like
- Salt and ground pepper to taste
How to prepare, step-by-step:
- Prepare ingredients:
- Boil about 3.5 quarts of water in the big cooking pot, rinse hens, put them into the boiling water:
- Boil hens for about 1.5h – 2h to prepare chicken broth (consult “How to Make Meat Broth” article if needed):
- Get hens out of water with a ladle, let them to cool a bit and cut into portion pieces (carefully hens can be hot inside!):
- Put chicken pieces back to the broth (correct heat so the broth boils slow). Peel onion, pierce it with a knife in several places and add to the cooking pot:
- Skin parsnips or parsley root, whatever you’ve got, skin carrots and slice them all into stripes. Add sliced roots to the chicken broth and boil all together for 10 mins:
- Skin potatoes, dice them as for soup, add to the cooking pot and boil till potatoes are almost ready (about 10 mins):
- Add egg linguine and boil over low heat for about 3 mins, if you like you may also add a ground black pepper:
- Season with salt to taste and add finely chopped herbs: I usually use fresh parsley, adding fresh dill is good too: cook for about 2 mins more:
- Serve Chicken Soup with Egg Linguine hot (you may also add fresh herbs to the soup bowl right before serving the soup, however I prefer to cook herbs for a bit):
