Ron Stone’s Memorial Chicken Soup

1 lg. chicken, 3-4 lbs.

1 stalk celery, with leaves attached

1 carrot

1 onion, quartered

8 whole peppercorns

2 bullion cubes or chicken broth flavor packets

Parsley flakes

Season salt


Red pepper (omit if cooking for sick broadcaster)

Minced onion, about 1 T.

4 cans cream of chicken soup

1 12 oz. pkg. wide egg noodles

In very large pot, simmer chicken, celery, carrot, onion, peppercorns and 1 T. season salt in 4 qts. water until chicken falls apart. Remove chicken from pot, let cool, then skin, bone and tear into pieces. Strain broth and return to pot, pressing as much of the liquid from the vegetables as possible through sieve. Bring to a boil. Cook noodles in boiling broth for 6 minutes. Add chicken broth flavor packets or bullion cubes, stirring to mix well. Stir in cream of chicken soup (undiluted). Stir gently to dissolve lumps, but try not to break noodles too much, Stir in chicken pieces. Add parsley flakes, red pepper flakes, minced onion, pepper and additional salt, if desired. (Sometimes I add 2 tablespoons of finely minced celery, but usually I’m too lazy to bother.) Heat through.

Serve to hungry crowd with lots of hot buttered cornbread.
