How to make Chicken Noodle Soup
1. Put the chicken carcass and any bones and juices into a large saucepan (you may need to break the carcass down to fit in the pan).
2. Roughly chop the carrot, onion and celery and add to the pan along with the stock cube.
3. Add the rest of the stock ingredients and put the pan on a high heat and bring to the boil.
4. Simmer for at least an hour, removing any scum with a spoon.
5. Drain the liquid into another pan using a sieve and leave the chicken carcass to cool.
6. When cool enough to handle pick the meat off the carcass and bones and add back to the pan with the stock, throw away the bones, skin and vegetables.
7. Chop the other carrots and celery into small pieces and add to the pan, simmer for 5 minutes or until the carrots are cooked.
8. Finely chop the spring onion and add to the pan along with the soy sauce.
9. Break the noodles into the pan and simmer for 1-2 minutes (they will continue to cook while you serve).
10. Check the seasoning and add salt and pepper to taste.
To serve: Delicious with wholemeal bread.
