Let’s not pretend this concoction is hard
You could fit it all on one recipe card.
A whole chicken is fine, but with only thighs
The soup will taste great, and pleasing to try.
Take carrot, celery, chicken and onion
Put in some water and click the stove on.
Add the meat and the bones – bones are the key.
The simmering water sets flavor free.
Season it well with rosemary and thyme
And a bay leaf, the zest of a lime.
(Or lemon instead, enough for the zing)
Salt and pepper as it sits simmering.
Leave it alone for a turn of the clock
Pull out the bones and admire the stock.
To this, salt to taste and noodle it up.
When done to your liking, its time to sup.
Chicken noodle is hearty, hot, and nutritious.
Simmer bones longer for added richness.
It’s perfect, I say alone in the bowl.
A 1/2 sandwich will also feel right at home.
