My hubby is sick. Very sick. I can't remember the last time I have seen him like this, in fact. Poor thing! I figured I should make him some chicken noodle soup to make him feel better. I found a recipe on pinterest from the Get Crocked blog. It sounded average enough-same basic ingredients-chicken, broth, noodles, carrots, and celery. I started off by prepping everything and dumping it into the crockpot. My changes (come on-you know I always change recipes-you were expecting this!): 2 extra cloves of garlic and some fresh cilantro (which I kept whole and fished out when I get rid of the bay leaf). I also turned the crockpot up to high so it would be finished in 3-4 hours instead of 8.
The verdict: Wonderful flavor! I think I have found the exact ingredient list for my next pot of chicken noodle soup. However, I will either follow the 8 hour instructions, or make it on the stove. The difficulty was this: the carrots were too crunchy to eat (not a problem for the rest of my family since they always fish out the carrots), and the noodles were mushy. Yuck! I can't stand mushy noodles. At least the flavor was great!
Here's hoping he feels better soon!
