MmMmmm good.

Last week, I posted about my free Progresso broth I got in the mail. Well, ever since Lisa, posted about her chicken soup her and her hubby made, I've been craving homemade chicky soup.

(I'm a dork and took a pic of the few things i've gotten free so far, i didn't get to put everything because i am a bigger dork and couldn't remember! I just got a mr. clean magic eraser, those things are awsome!)

So, what do you think I did with my free broth?

I grabbed a whole chicky out of the freezer, and (after is was defrosted of course) I boiled in a huge pot of water with minced garlic, salt, pepper, and parsley. After that bad baby was cooked to perfection and falling off the bone, I took the chicky off the bone. I used the entire chicken meat. (By the way, I don't really ever measure things out, and i am usually a trial and error kind of girl....and luckily, it usually comes out tasty!)

I dumped half the water out of the pot, and poured in my chicken broth, and a small can of the same broth. I added more garlic, salt, pepper, and parsley, and then some carrots, onions, and later a ton of egg noodles.

\I let it simmer for about 20 minutes. I served it with some yummy corn muffins, in our cute soup bowls i got as a wedding gift to go with our C&B dishes. (I will be honest, part of me wanted to make the soup so that i could use those bowls!)

and ta da! The yummiest chicky soup i've ever tasted! I think the garlic gave the broth an extra kick of flavor without being too over powered.
