The first thing that you will need to do is cook the noodles. You can use any noodle you like, but it is recommended to use whole wheat noodles, such as spaghetti noodles.
After the noodles have been boiled, it is time to add the broth and other ingredients to the pot. The broth you will be adding to the pot will be chicken broth, but you can also use beef or vegetable broth.
- 1 pound of spaghetti noodles
- 2 quarts of chicken broth
- ½ cup of chopped carrot
- ½ cup of chopped celery
- One small yellow onion, peeled and diced
- Two garlic cloves, peeled and minced
- One bay leaf
- ¼ teaspoon black pepper, coarsely ground pepper if possible
- ¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional)
Step 1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Cook the spaghetti according to the package directions.
Step 2. While the noodles are cooking, prepare the vegetables by washing them and cutting them into small pieces. You can cut them any way that you prefer. The vegetables you will add to the soup should be chopped into approximately ¼ inch dice.
Step 3. Once the noodles are slightly underdone, drain them and add them to the pot with your broth and all other ingredients except the bay leaf.
Step 4. Turn the heat down to a low simmer and cook the soup for at least an hour or until the noodles are tender.
Step 5. Next, remove the bay leaf from your soup, and season it with salt and pepper, if needed.
Once you have completed these steps, Tyler Florence chicken noodle soup is ready to be served to you and your loved ones on a cold winter’s day or as a hearty meal when you don’t feel like cooking anything too heavy.
What goes into the Tyler Florence Chicken Noodle Soup?
A wide variety of ingredients go into the Tyler Florence Chicken Noodle Soup recipe nearly every step of the way. The first ingredient is chicken. This is used to provide chicken flavor and protein. Next are carrots and potatoes.
For the chicken:
Ideally, you want to use day-old chicken, but if you can’t find that, it’s OK to use pre-cooked chicken. Cut it into bite-sized pieces and cover it with cold water in a stockpot or Dutch oven. Bring to a boil, lower the heat and simmer for 20 minutes. Uncover, turn the heat off and let it cool. Use a fork to pull the meat apart.
For the noodles and vegetables:
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil, add the egg noodles and cook according to package directions. Once they are cooked, remove them from the heat, strain them, and add them back into the pot.
Meanwhile, in a separate pot of salted boiling water, cook the carrots for 2 minutes. Add the celery and corn and cook for another minute. Drain and add them to the same pot with one tablespoon of melted butter. Set aside until ready to serve.
For the noodles:
Cook uncooked egg noodles according to package directions. For fresh, straight noodles, boil them until they’re tender and drain. For dried egg noodles, soak them in hot water for 15 minutes, then cook them in fresh water until tender; drain.
For the soup:
While the chicken is simmering for 20 minutes, prepare your soup base by combining onions (we used half yellow and half red), minced garlic, and oil in a large saucepan.
Stir over medium-high heat for about 3 minutes, then add the broth (or chicken stock) along with the carrots and celery—season with salt and pepper to taste. Bring to a simmer, cover, and cook for 3-4 minutes or until vegetables are tender.
Combine all ingredients in a large stockpot and bring to a boil. Cook for 10-15 minutes until vegetables are tender. Do not add salt, as the soup will be seasoned later when it’s served.
When the noodles and vegetables are done, drain them and pour them into your soup pot along with the chicken meat and any chicken juice left over from simmering. Add salt and pepper to taste before serving.
Chicken noodle soup is classic comfort food:
Noodle soup has, in some form or another, been a staple since ancient times. In the 2nd century, this classic of fine cuisine was popularized in China by its emperor, Huang-ti, who then served it to his guests to ensure their comfort and ease after a long day.
This hearty soup is perfect for those days when you don’t feel like cooking anything too heavy but want something comforting and filling.
The demand for this soup at the time may have originated from the prevalent cold weather during these years.
When it is winter time, it may be hard for people to get outside and do physical activities due to the intense cold; therefore, an activity such as making noodle soup over an open fire would be easier and more enjoyable than being outside.
There are always two sides to the health benefits or dangers of anything; some say that noodle soup can have many harmful effects, but others claim it has very positive health benefits. The only way to know whether noodle soup is healthy is by testing it for yourself.
This soup can be made in a slow cooker or on the stovetop:
For many years, this soup has been straightforward to make. People usually cook the noodles first, then cook the rest of the ingredients and add the broth once everything is ready. This is faster than if they start with raw chicken and then cook everything in a soup pot on the stove.
