We are starting off our fall season trying to eat a bit better every day. The summer was so busy with the move that we had way too much fast food and have been feeling crappy because of it. New season, new habits! I found this recipe in Paula Deen Cuts the Fat cookbook which has just been released. So simple and delicious. Honestly, homemade broth is so much more flavorful and less expensive than anything you can buy in the store, I'll be making it this way from here on. I changed up the noodles and added some egg and parsley to mine but kept the rest of the recipe the same.
Basically a whole chicken, 8 cups water, celery, carrots, onion, and garlic that were sauteed in olive olive first, fresh thyme and a bay leaf, salt and pepper. Slow simmer to cook chicken.
