"This is a basic recipe for chicken noodle soup. I sometimes add more spices, but this is where I start. I do like things spicy so I always add hot sauce to my bowl."

Step 1

Dice onions, carrots and celery. Place chicken and veggies in a dutch oven, fill with water and salt the water. Bring chicken and veggies to a boil and boil until fully cooked.

Step 2

Remove chicken to a plate and let cool, do not drain the water/broth from the dutch oven.

Step 3

You may need to add more water, but you want the dutch oven about 3/4 full of water.

Step 4

Add in the rest of the ingredients to the pot and bring to a low simmer. Simmer for about 10 minutes to let the spices mix.

Step 5

While broth is simmering, chunk up the chicken into bite size pieces. Add them to the simmering pot.

Step 6

Add noodles to the simmering pot and cook until the noodles are soft. About 10 minutes.

Step 7

Serve hot. We add shakes of hot sauce onto the top of the soup.

Lovely spicy, tasty soup. I added a couple of shakes of Ogopogo Butt Burner and that high tested it! Just right. Unfortunately I overcooked the chicken - doesn't look good but tasted great.25 Oct 13 Made again used thin pasta, Tastes great, chicken over cooked a bit again. Made no difference to the flavour.

Great soup and easy to make. The spices in this are a nice change from our regular chicken soup. Really liked the cumin and cajun flavors.
