Ingredients
  • For the Chicken Broth (adapted and simplified from Tyler Florence)

  • 1

    whole free-range chicken, rinsed, giblets, wings, legs and skin discarded


  • Pinch

    of salt

  • For the Chicken Noodle Soup

  • 2 cups

    shredded chicken


  • 1 cup

    rice star noodles (vermicelli or orzo)


  • 3

    big kale leaves, chopped into small, bite-sized pieces


  • 2

    carrots, sliced


  • 1

    red bell pepper, sliced

Directions
  1. For the Chicken Broth (adapted and simplified from Tyler Florence)
  2. Place the chicken in a large pot over medium heat with enough water to cover the chicken and allow it to slowly come to a boil.
  3. Add salt, lower the heat to medium-low and gently simmer for 1 to 1½ hours, partially covered, until the chicken is done. As it cooks, skim any impurities that rise to the surface; add a little more water if necessary to keep the chicken covered while simmering.
  4. Carefully remove the chicken to a cutting board. When its cool enough to handle, discard the remaining skin and bones and hand-shred the meat.
  5. Carefully strain the stock to remove any remaining solids.
