Ingredients

  • 1 lb boned and skinned chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch (2.5cm) pieces
  • 2 tsp vegetable oil
  • 1 cup onion, chopped
  • 1 cup red bell pepper, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 8 cups water
  • 2 Tbs chicken bouillon granules
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 2 whole bay leaves
  • 4 oz egg noodles, cholesterol free, uncooked
  • 2 cups frozen mixed vegetables

Directions

  • In a large Dutch oven or soup pot, sauté chicken pieces in oil over medium heat until pinkness is gone and chicken is opaque.
  • Add onion, red pepper, and garlic to chicken, sauté about 2 minutes.
  • Add water, bouillon, pepper, and bay leaves.
  • Bring to a boil, cover and simmer for 5 minutes.
  • Stir in noodles and frozen vegetables and cook for 10–15 minutes uncovered until noodles are tender. Remove bay leaves before serving.

Note: Prepare bay leaves for cooking by breaking them in half and placing them in a tea ball. Toss the tea ball into the soup pot. You can easily find the tea ball when it’s time to remove the bay leaves.
