  • small bunch thyme

Instructions

1

Start the soup

Heat small pot on high. Add chicken stock, chicken thighs and only half the sprigs of each of the parsley, thyme and oregano bunches. Roughly chop 3 stalks celery and toss into stock. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer and cook, covered, until chicken is tender and easily pulling off the bone, about 25 minutes. Meanwhile:

Prep veggies

* Half leeks, trim off and discard root end and tough green tops. Slice into ¼ inch half moons, place in a deep bowl and soak with water.
* Slice potatoes, carrots and celery in ¼ inch rounds or half moons.
* Tear remaining oregano, parsley and thyme leaves off stems and roughly chop.

3

Sautee remaining veggies

Heat large stock pot on medium heat. Add 2 tablespoons olive oil. Toss in leeks and saute until soft, about 2 minutes. Add carrots, potatoes and chili flakes and cook, stirring occasionally, until soft, about 4 minutes. Add celery, cover and cook on low, stirring occasionally, until chicken is finished cooking.

4

Cook the noodles

When chicken is done, remove from pot and set aside to cool. Remove celery pieces and herbs with a slotted spoon and compost. Add stock to sauteed vegetables in large pot. Toss in chopped herbs, peas and noodles. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer and cook until noodles are soft, about 8 minutes.

5

Combine & serve

Once chicken cools, remove skin and discard. Remove chicken from bone with a knife and shred with hands or thinly slice with knife. Add chicken to soup and season to taste with salt and pepper. Spoon into bowls, top with grated cheese.
