This was one of the first things I cooked for dinner this year. Nice and simple and easy and tasty. Similar to Justin's chicken and onion soup last time. With a good base, you can vary it endlessly to get all sorts of yummy dishes :D
This doesn't actually have a proper recipe, since this was again an Ihsan original :P But I'll try, so here you go. Sorry if it is a bit incoherent :P
What you need:
Chicken pieces, legs or breasts
2 carrots, sliced
Noodles, cooked according to directions
What you do:
- To make a good soup base, either boil some chicken pieces (legs, or the bones) in some water seasoned with some salt and pepper until the meat is tender and is practically falling of the bones, or just add some chicken pieces into water with some chicken stock added.
- Season with a lot of pepper and some garlic powder.
- Add the carrots together with the chicken.
- Fry the onions in some butter, and add into the soup.
- Simmer for about half an hour, or until the chicken is cooked.
- The whole thing might be a bit oily if you used thighs, so remove any oil that floats to the top of the pot if you want :P Otherwise, it'll be a bit too oily.
- Add the cabbage and simmer for about 5 minutes until it is tender.
And its done! Just add some noodles and some of the soup into a bowl and you have yummy and nutritious chicken soup. One of the few dishes I cook that actually has vegetables that I eat :P Muahaha.
As for which type of noodles to use, people typically use egg noodles, I think. But since I don't really like egg noodles and we had a lot of udon noodles left over from last time, I used those instead. They turned out quite nice, since they were supposed to be used in soups anyway.
