When life gives you…. noodles….. you make Chicken Noodle Soup! My dad gave us a batch of homemade noodles during our last visit, so we had to whip up something phenomenal! Chicken Noodle Soup can sometimes be a little bland / flat / tasteless, so I was searching for on the that really brought more flavor to the table (pun intended!).
This Lemon & Dill Chicken Noodle Soup is a slight variant on the classic favorite; just enough to give it some additoinal flavor without straying to far from the original recipe we all know and love! The burst of lemon flavoring and smattering dill bring a level of freshness that you just don’t find in soup often. There are a few things I would change the next time around:
- Add some additional spicing to the chicken. Roasting the chicken with a nice rub is a great start, but I would really love to kick this up a notch and add a litle more depth to that flavoring!
- The recipe called for quite a lot of garlic, lemon and dill. Yes, 100% use each of them, but I did not use the full amount for each (probably more like 75% of what the recipe called for). The garlic in particular was one that struck me as overpowerin. Next time, I would probably only use 4-5 cloves.
Other than that, fresh noodles are the best, but you really can’t go wrong with homemade soup!
