Turkey or chicken noodle soup

Filed under: Leftovers, Poultry, Soup and Stew — ruralmomof3 @ 3:29 pm

4 c. broth

1 c. turkey or chicken bits- already cooked

any combination of carrots, celery, onion, potatoes, peas, corn, cabbage, green beans, etc

a handful of fine egg noodles, broken spagetti noodles, or the like or a half handful of rice

If your veggies are raw, saute them in a small amount of butter and/or broth until crisp tender. Combine other ingredients except pasta and bring to boil. Add pasta and simmer,covered until soft.

If you don’t have enough broth, you can add tomato juice or tomatoes for a tomato based chicken soup or you can add milk for a cream soup. If using milk, you may want to thicken it slightly. (1-2 tbl corn starch stirred into 1/4 c. of the milk- add to soup and bring to boil stirring) You can thicken this even more and serve over biscuits or toast. May also add a dash of lemon juice or celery seed for extra flavor.
