I have been reading Joanne Fluke novels for several years. They are light, fun mysteries that are food related. The recipes are always included in the books and I was anxious to try this very simple chicken soup recipe from the latest book, Devil's Food Cake Murder.
I made my own chicken broth with two large chicken breasts boiled in water with salt, pepper and a couple of bay leaves. You could certainly buy the broth and use a rotissere chicken for the meat. This made a thick, creamy soup that we both really enjoyed. The second day, it thickened and needed a bit of water/broth to "turn it back into soup".
8 cups chicken broth (you may want a little more to thin down the soup)
3 cups cubed cooked chicken
6 1/2 cups uncooked egg noodles
2 cans cream of chicken soup
1 cup sour cream
Boil broth and add noodles, cook until tender. Add two cans of soup to the broth. Stir in the chicken and sour cream (I added a little extra broth to thin the soup a little). Sprinkle with pepper if desired. Enjoy!
