Chicken flu-de-noodle soup

Flu season is here in Texas…..and elsewhere I am sure. Tummy issues, fever, chills, aches…..just no fun at all.  Well, my husband had an awful bout of food poisoning……not from me…hahaha…..but a restaurant we ate at while on vacation…..it is what it is….but he was/is so sick…..had to keep food down and comforting on his stomach. So……I made him this wonderful easy chicken noodle soup. I think even if you were home alone you could throw this together, provided someone brings you the stuff. I hope you try it…..not because you are sick but because you like chicken noodle soup. 1 cut up chicken washed and dried 6 cups water 1-2 teaspoons salt 2 tablespoons olive oil 1/4 teaspoon onion powder 1/4 teaspoon Italian herbs Udon noodles 1 package In a large sauce pan heat oil up. After chicken is dried and cut put in hot pan, using tongs toss while cooking. You might get some brown areas on the meat. About 10 minutes. After that add water and mix around, bring to a boil. …

Here is the stock recipe and I will include the soup recipe too.

Strainers from big holes to a fine one 1 extra stock pot or very large bowl.  1 bucket or trash bag, something to put the debri in Put everything into stock pot, cover with water and bring to a boil, then simmer for the day. Once in a while stir and push down on everything. Over time the solids will reduce and you’ll have a nice rich broth …
