Mid-Week Mixers: Naomi’s Perfect Chicken Noodle Soup

chicken noodle soupLooking at a map of the US this past week it’s all purple, pink and blue because it’s cold outside! But we’re here to warm you up with wonderful soups to take the chill off. Prepare a pot of hot, delicious soup and get ready to snuggle into a cozy robe when the wind blows.

Naomi says: This Winter, the Blackburn’s saw a whole lotta illness in our home. My homemade chicken soup was a frequent request from my son and husband. I love the simplicity yet downright comfort of this recipe. I can just sit and eat bowls of this stuff because it is just perfect! Just like Grandma’s!

The noodles can either be added to the soup mixture or boiled separately and added to the soup. I prefer the later just simply because I don’t want the starch off the noodles in my soup.


5 Bone in, Skin on Chicken Breasts
6 qts water
6 qts chicken broth
1 lb bag baby carrot, chopped
1 large onion, chopped
4 stalks celery, chopped
6 chicken bouillon cubes
Salt, pepper as desired
1 bag Amish noodles


1) Place chicken breasts in a large soup pot and cover with water (normally about 6 qts) and boil for about 1 hour. Once cooked, remove breasts from water, remove meat from bones and shred in large chunks.

2) Return the chicken to the pan and discard the bones. Add the next 6 ingredients and allow to simmer for another hour. In the meantime, cook noodles in a separate pan or add to the soup after the hour.

Bette Lee Crosby

USA Today Bestselling and Award-winning novelist Bette Lee Crosby's books are "Well-crafted storytelling populated by memorable characters caught up in equally memorable circumstances." - Midwest Book Review The Seattle Post Intelligencer says Crosby's writing is, "A quirky mix of Southern flair, serious thoughts about important things in life and madcap adventures." Samantha from Reader's Favorite raves, "Crosby writes the type of book you can't stop thinking about long after you put it down." "Storytelling is in my blood," Crosby laughingly admits, "My mom was not a writer, but she was a captivating storyteller, so I find myself using bits and pieces of her voice in most everything I write." It is the wit and wisdom of that Southern Mama Crosby brings to her works of fiction; the result is a delightful blend of humor, mystery and romance along with a cast of quirky charters who will steal your heart away. Her work was first recognized in 2006 when she received The National League of American Pen Women Award for a then unpublished manuscript. She has since gone on to win nineteen awards for her work; these include: TheRoyal Palm Literary Award, the FPA President's Book Award Gold Medal, Reader's Favorite Award Gold Medal, and the Reviewer's Choice Award.
