Chicken Noodle Soup with Sage

There’s nothing like a big pot of soup to chase the winter chill from your bones!  We’ve had our first snow; not a lot but just a warning.

Whenever I cook, I miss my family.  The children of course are doing what young adults must; college and working.  On the other hand, my husband is still in Haiti, having a last fling, pretending not to be retired.  That’s coming to a screeching halt December 15th when he finally surrenders, comes home and has something decent to eat 🙂

Chicken Noodle Soup with Sage

2 tbsp olive oil

6 chicken thighs, bone in, skin on

1 onion, chopped

3 celery branches, diced

3 carrots, diced

Ground sage

1 1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp black pepper

Water

1 pkg frozen fresh noodles, coarsely broken

In a skillet, briefly brown the thighs in the olive oil, then remove and place in a stock pot. Add the onion, celery and carrots to the skillet, sauteing until the onion is soft.  Sprinkle a coating of ground sage over the vegetables, add the salt and pepper, then place in the stock pot with the chicken.  Add water to the pot 1-2 inches above the ingredients, bring to a boil, then simmer for 45 minutes – 1 hour.

Remove the chicken thighs from the pot, remove skin and bones, then cut into bite size pieces.  Return the chicken to the pot, bring to a boil, add the noodles and boil for 1-2 minutes.

  1. Chicken soup makes everything better. Must be tough for you having everyone away. Big Man is away for a couple of weeks and has only been gone a few days and I’m already complaining!

    I’m sure that your family misses you and your good cooking as much as you miss them.

    Looks delicious! If winter ever comes (in the 80s here this week, creepy though that is)…
