Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup and Biscuits


Even though there is no shortage of resources on the internet or every where else for that matter about cooking I have decided since I really like to cook I am going to start a new section on healthy cooking and eating. Of course the healthy part may be up for debate however eventually I will have many fun and tasty recipes that I have enjoyed with my little girl. Yes, these have been child approved.

Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup with Biscuits

Chicken Soup Ingredients

1 49.5oz can of chicken broth
2 cups chopped carrots
2 cups chopped celery
1 small chopped onion
2 6oz cooked and chopped chicken breast
2 cups egg noodles

Biscuit Ingredients

1 cup flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder (yes that is one and a half teaspoons, not one half)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup milk
2 tablespoons olive oil

While the chicken is cooking chop and combine all the ingredients except for the egg noodles into a 5.5 quart sauce pan (or whatever pan you have that is big enough). Once the chicken is done, chop it up and add it to the pot. Bring to a boil then reduce heat and simmer for about 15 minutes. During this time prepare your biscuits (continued below). After the 15 minutes add your 2 cups of egg noodles and cook for about another 10 minutes.

Making the biscuits...
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees (on bake). Mix the dry ingredients in a medium sized bowl then add the oil and milk, mix well. The dough may be a bit sticky but that is okay. Portion the dough out into a mini muffin pan, if you don't have one use a cookie sheet but try to make 10 to 12 muffins. Bake them for 10 or so minutes until they start turning brown. Serve with the soup.

Makes about 4 to 5 servings

Tips: I like to buy ready to cook and quick frozen chicken. All you have to do is throw it in the pan and cook. Feel free to get creative by adding other vegetables you and your kids like. In my opinion Tabasco never hurts anything just don't forget to dish up the kids' first. Top off your biscuits with a little dill weed for a different flavor or paprika for color (do this before baking).
