Chicken Noodle Soup

  • carrots, peeled and cut into rounds
  • 2 branches celery, sliced
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) butter
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) lemon juice
  • 7 cups (1.75 litres) chicken broth
  • 1 1/2 cups (375 mL) wide egg noodles
  • 2 cups (500 mL) diced cooked chicken
  • 1/4 cup (60 mL) chopped flat-leaf parsley
  • Salt and pepper

In a large saucepan over medium heat, soften the vegetables in the butter. Season with salt and pepper. Deglaze with the lemon juice and add the broth. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer gently until the vegetables are al dente, about 10 minutes. Add the noodles and simmer until tender, about 5 minutes. Add the chicken and parsley. When the chicken is heated through, adjust the seasoning and serve.
