Classic Chicken Noodle Soup
Contributed by Grace Parisi
ACTIVE: 45 MIN TOTAL TIME: 3 HRS SERVINGS: 6
One 3-pound chicken, neck reserved
3 1/2 quarts water
4 carrots—2 coarsely chopped, 2 sliced 1/4 inch thick
4 celery ribs—2 coarsely chopped, 2 sliced 1/4 inch thick
1 unpeeled onion, quartered
1 large unpeeled garlic clove, smashed
1 teaspoon whole black peppercorns
1 large fresh bay leaf
6 parsley sprigs
2 thyme sprigs
1/2 pound thin egg noodles
1/4 cup finely chopped flat-leaf parsley
1.In a stockpot, combine the chicken and neck, water, chopped carrots and celery, onion, garlic, peppercorns and herbs; bring to a boil. Cover partially and simmer over low heat for 30 minutes. Transfer the chicken to a plate. Discard the skin. Pull the meat off the bones, cut into 1/2-inch pieces and refrigerate.
2.Return the bones to the pot. Simmer for about 1 hour. Strain the broth into a bowl and rinse out the pot. Return the broth to the pot and boil until reduced to 8 cups, 30 minutes. Season with salt.
3.Add the sliced carrots and celery to the broth, cover and simmer until just tender, 12 minutes. In a saucepan of boiling salted water, cook the noodles; drain and cool under running water. Add the noodles, chicken and parsley to the pot and bring to a simmer. Ladle the soup into bowls and serve hot.
Not often during the Summer, but when Winter rolls around, maybe twice a week. I swear by Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup for colds and flu, Menudo for hangovers, and Cream of Tomato with diced avocado and chives because it just looks appetizing.

One of my absolute favorite childhood dishes was my mother's chicken noodle soup (with homemade noodles). Next to Bisquick pancakes, a good chicken soup is probably the most Proustian thing I could eat.
