One holiday down, one to go! Our son put the Christmas tree up for me as Pa Lloyd isn’t able to do that. He’s slowly getting better but has a way to go. The good news for me is that he can wash some dishes!
The soup recipe I am sharing with you is one I got from Facebook, Pa Lloyd says it’s the best soup I’ve ever made. I don’t know if I agree with him but it is a good one!
Creamy Chicken Soup
1 Tablespoon olive oil
6 bone in chicken thighs
1 onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 large carrots, sliced
1 celery stalk, sliced
1/3 cup flour
2 Tablespoons chopped parsley
1 chicken boullion cube, crushed
4 cups chicken broth, 5 cups milk
10 oz. dry noodles and 1/3 cup frozen peas
Salt and pepper
Brown chicken thighs in oil about 3 minutes each side, add onion, garlic and carrots. Saute’ 5 minutes, add parsley, crushed bouillion, crushed and chicken broth, simmer covered 25 minutes. Remove thighs, remove skin and bones and shred meat, add to soup along with milk, noodles and peas, simmer 10-15 minutes until the noodles are tender. Serve.
Have a great week!
I'm Kathy Lloyd. I grew up on a farm near Elmore, MN and have lived in Fairmont for over 44 years. I have always loved to cook, even when I was very young. I loved to stay with my Aunt Dorothy during my childhood. She was a great cook and used to give me freedom in the kitchen, teaching me along the way. She made recipes from our Norwegian heritage, along with pies, homemade doughnuts, yeast bread and cinnamon rolls.
