Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup

The other night I made two small roast chickens with carrots and onions for dinner. Instead of throwing away everything that was left, I decided to turn the leftovers into Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup.

This is great because you get to use up food you would normally waste and just toss, plus the recipe isn’t strict. You can add or minus anything that you wish or that you had on hand.

The original dish was roast chicken with carrots and onions. I covered the chicken with olive oil, salt and pepper. Baked till the chicken was completely cooked.  The chicken was moist and full of natural flavor.
