What Kind Of Chicken To Use For Chicken Noodle Soup
If you’re doing the slow-simmered method for chicken soup, then you want to either use a whole chicken, or chicken pieces. I find that the chicken leg quarters are usually very reasonably priced.
You simmer the chicken with other flavorful ingredients for a long time (an hour or two). Then remove the chicken and let it cool. Then separate out the meat from the fat and the skin. Add the meat to the soup and discard the rest.
For the quick chicken soup below, I buy boneless skinless chicken thighs. Boneless and skinless is really helpful because you don’t need to ever spend time removing skin or bones. Using thighs instead of breasts adds a ton of flavor, and the chicken is so moist in the soup.
You can use chicken breast if you really love it and that’s your thing, but it won’t be nearly as good.
