Grandma's Recipe Collection

(Post modified on 1/27/23.)

I found this recipe years ago in an old community cookbook. You know the kind? Church cookbooks, extension service cookbooks, or even family collections. Recipes collected from ladies in your church or your surrounding neighborhood, usually as a way to make money, and brought together by a spiral binding. I have a boxful of these cookbooks that I’ve collected through the years, which also includes many from my grandma who collected recipes all her life. And there are some great recipes in these treasured collections if you take the time to look through them! Like this Creamy Chicken Soup.

Instructions for Making This Recipe

Ingredients for this RecipeGather your ingredients so that you have everything close at hand on the counter or table.

 

Prepare the Ingredients

Using a chef’s knife and cutting board, prepare the ingredients. Mince the onion. Peel and slice the carrots and celery. Dice the red potato with or without the skin.

I always like to keep the skin on my potatoes to add as much nutrition to the dish as possible. 

On a second cutting board, slice the chicken tenders into bite-sized pieces.

 

Make the Soup

Melt butter in a large pot or Dutch oven over medium heat. Add in the prepared onion, carrots, and celery. Saute until tender, about 3 minutes.

Stir in the dried parsley, thyme, kosher salt, freshly ground black pepper, and bay leaf.

Adding the Water and Chicken Bouillon to the VegetablesAdd the water and chicken bouillon cubes to make a broth. Bring to a boil and then add the uncooked chicken pieces and diced potatoes. Cook on medium-low heat for 10-12 minutes.

Stir in the frozen petite sweet peas and egg noodles and return to boil. Simmer covered for 20 minutes until the noodles are almost tender.

 

Thicken the Soup

While the noodles cook, make the slurry for thickening. In a small bowl, combine the all-purpose flour and 1/2 cup whole milk until smooth. Set aside until ready to use.

Add thickening agent the soupOnce the noodles are tender, add to the soup the remaining milk, along with the thickening agent. Cook and stir until the soup is thick and bubbly.

This soup will serve 8-10 people.
