Ingredients

  • 1  Tablespoon  olive oil
  • small yellow onion, chopped finely
  • carrots, scrubbed clean and unpeeled, chopped finely
  • stalks celery, chopped finely
  • 1/4  Teaspoon  crushed red pepper flakes
  • Kosher salt, to taste
  • 6  Cups  rich, gluten-free chicken stock with chicken meat mixed in
  • 4-5 ounces gluten-free rice noodles

Directions

Heat the olive oil in a Dutch oven over low heat. Add the onion, stir, and cook until softened, about 5-10 minutes depending on how low your heat is. Add the carrots and celery, stir, and cook for 5 more minutes.

Add the crushed red pepper and season with salt, to taste. Add the chicken stock, bring to a low boil, and reduce the heat to a simmer. Cook for about 30 minutes; the longer the better, to really marry the flavors.

Bring another pot of water to a boil over high heat. About 15 minutes before serving, put the noodles into a large mixing bowl and cover with the boiling water. Break up gently with a fork. Let sit until soft but not mushy, about 8 minutes, and drain. Remove the soup from the heat. Put about ¼ cup of noodles into a serving bowl and ladle the chicken broth over the top.

Chicken Noodle Soup Shopping Tip

If you’re using store-bought broth or stock instead of water, make sure to buy low-sodium. The salt will concentrate as the water evaporates during the cooking process.

Chicken Noodle Soup Cooking Tip

When browning meat, resist the urge to move the meat – you must allow a flavorful crust to form over high heat. Once it has formed, the meat should slide freely with the shake of a pan.
