Chicken & Prawns Noodle soup with easy Homemade Chicken Stock


seafood soup
Chicken /  Seafood soup is a common classic comfort food which is considered highly nutritious and has therapeutic value for common cold. As my little princess was down with cough and cold the entire week , I kept searching the net for a quick and easy home remedy , when I happened to come across an interesting article as published on SCIENCE DAILY in Oct 2000. 








Easy Home made Chicken stock
Preparation Time : 15 minutes
Cooking time : 20 to 25 minutes

Chicken and Prawns Noodle soup
Preparation time :  10 minutes
Cooking time : 12 to 15 minutes
Serves : 5 to 6




According to the studies, "Chicken soup contains a number of substances with beneficial medicinal activity including an anti-inflammatory mechanism that could ease the symptoms of upper respiratory  tract infections. Researches from the Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine Section of the Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha , Nebraska initiated a study to evaluate the possibility that chicken soup may be a factor in attenuating the inflammatory response associated with colds.The recipe I have used here is inspired from net and a few more articles that I came across. I prepared this nice and comforting Chicken and Prawns noodle soup for my daughter twice this week and I saw it worked wonders on her :-)


Preparing Home made Chicken soup


Ingredients :
  • Few chicken bones
  • Few Spinach stalks, coarsely chopped
  • 2 medium carrots, diced into large pieces
  • 1 sweet potato, diced into large cubes
  • 1/2 cup cauliflower, diced into big pieces
  • 1/4 cup chopped spring onion, can use one medium onion instead
  • 1 Bay leaf
  • 7 to 8 whole peppercorns
  • Salt, to taste
  • 5 cups of water


homemade chicken stock
Directions :
  • Put all the ingredients in a pressure cooker, after the first whistle simmer on low heat for 20 to 25 minutes in the cooker itself. Let cool, then strain out the chicken stock. This would be the base of the soup. In case you cannot arrange for stock , use water instead.
