The weather we’re having where I live makes me crave soup and bread. (Perhaps it’s just the pregnancy, I don’t know.) The recipes for these comfort foods are really filling and more nutritious than most soup in a can. My kids eat this meal up too so that’s a real plus!
Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup
1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 Tbsp canola oil
6 cups chicken broth
1/2 cup chopped onion
2 cups medium egg noodles
1 cup chopped carrots
1 cup sliced celery
1 cup diced potatoes
Cut chicken into 3/4 inch chunks. Heat oil in a Dutch oven (large pot) and add chicken. Saute for 4-5 minutes or until cooked through. Remove the chicken.
Bring 6 cups of chicken broth (we use our own homemade or the packaged stuff from Trader Joe’s) and 1/2 cup chopped onion to a simmer in the pot. Add the vegetables and boil for about 3 minutes before adding the noodles. Boil, covered for 5-10 minutes until tender.
Stir in the chicken and sprinkle in some snipped dill and pepper to taste. Serve with Parmesan Bubble Bread (recipe below!).
Parmesan Bubble Bread
1 1/2 lb frozen bread dough dinner rolls OR dinner roll dough from your bread maker (we use a whole wheat recipe)
1/2 cup parmesan cheese
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
Thaw rolls until soft and risen or remove dough from your bread machine after dough cycle ends. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
Form each roll into a ball. (We divide the bread machine dough into 10-12 pieces and roll.) Roll out into a 6 inch circle.
Sprinkle each circle with parmesan cheese and roll again, Turn the circle over, roll it out and sprinkle with cheese. Both sides of the circle will have parmesan cheese rolled into them. Don’t worry, this isn’t a perfect science!
Place dough on sprayed cookie sheet and sprinkle each circle with 2 Tbsp. mozzarella.
Bake at 400F for 15 minutes or until browned and cheese is melted. I usually have to bake these a few minutes longer when using my own dough.
Enjoy on a cold winter’s night. Yummy!
