This hearty twist on a classic contains shredded chicken, noodles, and mixed vegetables (optional) in a homemade chicken broth.
Savory, delicious comfort food!
Traditional homemade chicken noodle soup contains carrots, celery, and egg noodles.
I prefer mixed vegetables, spaghetti or linguine instead of egg noodles.
Thankfully, you can use whatever you prefer. Exactly why I love this recipe. Easy to adjust!
Super easy to make! Perfect during cold weather. Pairs well with a big green salad.
What are cumin seeds?
Cumin is a spice made from the dried seed of a plant known as Cuminum cyminum, which is a member of the parsley family. This spice has a pleasant nutty flavor.
Cumin seeds are harvested by hand from an annual plant; they are small, boat-shaped, and resemble caraway seeds. The most common variety of cumin is a brownish-yellow color, although you can also sometimes find black cumin, green cumin, and white cumin. The seeds hold flavor longer than ground cumin.
Homemade chicken broth is made by boiling chicken quarters in water seasoned with bay leaves, cumin seeds, salt and black pepper.
What’s the difference between dark meat chicken and white meat chicken?
Dark meat cuts have more iron. They come from muscles using more oxygen. The iron is held in a protein called myoglobin, which gives it the darker color. White meat cuts come from muscles that metabolize energy with less oxygen, so they have less myoglobin and are lighter in color.
Plus, a splash of Liquid Smoke (optional) provides a tasty smoky flavor.
What is the difference between chicken broth and chicken stock?The terms “broth” and “stock” are often used interchangeably. Stock is made from bones, while broth is made from meat or vegetables. Using bones in stock creates a thicker liquid, while broth tends to be thinner and more flavorful.Source: Healthline.com
