Don’t throw out that leftover rotisserie chicken…make soup!

This delicious, hearty soup began as about half a leftover rotisserie chicken from Costco. I always make stock from all leftover chicken and bones.

Also, if I can’t find the time right away, I always freeze it until I have the time to make stock.

The chorizo sausage adds a warm smokey character to the broth which is a nice twist on a traditional chicken noodle soup.

An alternative to buying an already cooked rotisserie chicken is to try our speedy One Hour Roast Chicken recipe.

TIPS

  • I should also mention that this is a very good soup without the chorizo sausage, if you prefer not to have it or just don’t have it on hand.
  • Don’t hesitate to make this soup with any leftover chicken you have. I’ve even used leftover BBQ chicken with the sauce and/or seasoning left on. It really gave a great smoky, sweet and spicy flavour to the broth. Well worth trying.

I normally make chicken and beef stock in the oven from  collecting leftover bones and freezing them until I’ve accumulated enough. To find out more about this take a look at this post on How to Make chicken or Beef Stock in the Oven. There are a couple of good reasons why I think it is the best and most economical way.

Chorizo Rotisserie Chicken Noodle Soup

Prep Time: 1 hour
Cook Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour 30 minutes

Chorizo Rotisserie Chicken Noodle Soup. Turn an ordinary supermarket rotisserie chicken into a delicious comfort food soup.

Ingredients

For the soup stock

  • 1 cooked supermarket rotisserie chicken
  • 8-10 cups water
  • 1 onion, cut in quarters
  • 1 carrot, roughly chopped
  • 3 cloves crushed garlic
  • pinch salt and pepper to season

For the soup

  • Chicken stock prepared earlier
  • 3 carrots, cut in coins or sticks
  • 6 ounces chopped chorizo sausage
  • 1 diced red pepper
  • 2 tbsp summer savoury
  • 1 cup medium egg noodles
  • Pinch salt and pepper to season

Instructions

For the Soup Stock

  1. Remove most of the meat from a rotisserie chicken, cut it in large cubes and set aside in the fridge for later.
  2. Slowly simmer the chicken bones in the water along with the onion, carrot, and garlic. Simmer gently for about an hour.
  3. Strain the stock through a cheesecloth-lined colander.
  4. Skim off any excess fat that comes to the surface. You can make the stock a day ahead if you like and refrigerate it overnight, which makes the fat that comes to the surface much easier to remove.

To prepare the Chorizo Rotisserie Chicken Noodle Soup

  1. Add the prepared chicken stock, savoury, and carrots to a large soup pot.
  2. Simmer for about 15 minutes before adding the egg noodles, red pepper, cubed cooked chicken breasts and chorizo sausage.
  3. Season with salt and pepper as needed.
  4. Simmer until the noodles are tender and serve.

Notes

  • If you want to make this a quick and easy soup, you can just buy 2 litres of low sodium chicken stock and use that instead of making it.
  • If you have leftover chicken of any sort, don't hesitate to use it at all. You can easily make half a recipe too if you choose.
