Leftovers Recipe: Chicken Ramen Noodle Soup

Dinner Saturday night included two whole can chickens. We had a small amount of meat left and all those bones–perfect for us to make a rich chicken stock for a Sunday supper of chicken ramen noodle soup. I follow the basic recipe for making chicken stock and use a crockpot. The soup could not be more simple: make noodles; heat chicken stock and simmer with chopped bok choy for a few minutes; add leftover chicken; add cooked noodles; serve; enjoy.

Beer can chicken

1-2 cups of chicken
