menu plan: honduran chicken noodle soup

the title of this post is pretty much false advertising.  this is doris soup, not honduran soup.  no recipe.  just dumping stuff together.  you know how i do it.  it must be good though as gabriel ate leftovers of it THE VERY NEXT DAY.  that's a seal of approval right there.  the one thing that is honduran is the poached egg.  i had never had poached egg in my chicken noodle soup until i lived in honduras for a year.  i quite like it!  i think i'll be making a few more soups this month as according to tami's "got glue" class, january is soup month.  this totally makes sense too with the current climatic conditions affecting my beloved south.  i do think a page on my favorite soup recipes will make a fine addtion to my "one little word" mini-album too.  anyhoo, here is the soup recipe should anyone care to try it and this week's menu plan brought to you coutesy of the florida state seminoles . . .

honduran chicken noodle soup:
2 bone in skin on chicken breasts
1/2 bag of frozen diced onion
25 baby carrots, sliced
salt, pepper, dried parsley (to taste)
1 can cream of chicken soup
1/2 bag egg noodles

cook chicken, onion, carrots, salt, pepper, and parsley until the chicken is done.  be careful to cook it at a soft boil so the chicken doesn't become rubbery (it's just that sometimes i forget).  remove chicken from pot, shred, and return to pot sans skin and bones.  add can of soup and gently crack in enough eggs to feed the masses (one per person. you can add more eggs when you heat it up for leftover day).  i believe i boiled my eggs in the soup for ten minutes and then served.  tasty!

this week's menu plan:
sunday - chicken noodle soup
monday - buffalo wings and muffin tin pizza for the big game
tuesdeay - leftovers
wednesday - dinner at church
thursday - french toast and bacon
friday - open
saturday - taco salad

  1. Dang that looks good! I don't understand the egg thing. You just crack them open into the soup? They don't mix into it? That kind of sounds weird, but it looks really good.
