What You Need To Make This Crack Chicken
Noodle Soup Recipe?
Chicken: Although this recipe suggests using pre-cooked, rotisserie chicken for convenience you have the flexibility to cook and shred your chicken breasts or thighs. This way you can have control over the seasoning. Customize the flavor according to your preference. Feel free to season it with salt, pepper, or your favorite herbs and spices.
Broth: If you are mindful of your sodium intake consider opting for no salt or low-sodium chicken broth to maintain control over the salt content in the soup. You can always adjust the seasoning to taste as the soup simmers.
Veggies: While celery and carrots are mentioned in the recipe don’t be afraid to be creative with vegetables. Adding peas, corn or even diced bell peppers can bring color and nutrients to your Crack Chicken
Bacon: The cooked chopped bacon lends an indulgent touch to the soup. You can cook it until crispy for a pronounced bacon flavor or leave it slightly tender for a different texture. Feel free to experiment with types of bacon such as turkey bacon if you prefer a leaner option.
Noodle: The recipe specifies egg noodles which will absorb all the delicious flavors of the soup as they cook. You can also try using kinds of noodles or pasta if you want a change, in texture. Just make sure to adjust the cooking time based on your choice.
Cheese: When it comes to cheese shredded cheddar is the option, for this soup. Don’t be afraid to experiment with other cheeses. Mozzarella or Monterey Jack can add a twist. You can even mix different cheeses together for a more flavorful experience. The cheese is what gives this soup the comforting texture that we all love.
Steps To Make Crack Chicken
Step 1: Alright, let’s get started with making a chicken dish! Grab a stockpot or a reliable Dutch oven. In this pot of goodness combine your chicken (you can use that leftover rotisserie chicken you’ve been eyeing), condensed cheese soup for that creamy touch, chicken broth milk to add some richness celery, for a healthy twist carrots to bring in some vibrant colors, Ranch dressing mix for an extra flavor boost and don’t forget the crispy and irresistible cooked bacon. Just imagine all those flavors mingling together—it’s like creating a symphony of taste!
Step 2: Now place the pot on your stovetop. Turn up the heat to high. We want some action happening here! Let it come to a boil. Once it starts bubbling away reduce the heat to a gentle simmer. This is where the magic begins. Let it simmer away for 20 to 25 minutes until the veggies become tender and everything comes together harmoniously.
Step 3: It’s time to add those dried egg noodles into the mix. Sprinkle them gently into the pot as if you’re scattering stars across the night sky.
And of course, don’t forget to add in some cheddar cheese—it’s what gives the soup its comforting creaminess. Now give it a stir. Let it simmer for about 5 more minutes. The noodles will become tender. That cheese will melt perfectly.
Step 4: There you have it! You’ve just made a bowl of comfort and fond memories. Dig in, take a spoonful, and enjoy every bite of your homemade Crack Chicken
