When I think of comfort food, Ujhazi chicken soup is on top of my list. Imagine tender chicken with vegetables, noodles and the most delicious hot broth. The broth is made with chicken and beef giving this soup extra flavour. Traditionally, this chicken soup is made on the stove by slowly simmering the chicken with beef and vegetables for hours. In this recipe, I used an instant pot. I found that by using instant pot, the broth was richer, and the chicken and beef were falling off the bone in no time. Adding gluten-free egg noodles made this soup true comfort food without gluten. I mean, anything with noodles is comfort food. In my book, this is the best chicken soup. You know, the kind that gives you warm memories of growing up. There is nothing more comforting than cozying up with a blanket and a hot bowl of Ujhazi chicken soup. Especially if you are not feeling well or need some extra love

What Is Ujhazi Chicken Soup?

Ujhazi chicken soup originated in Hungary. In Hungary, it is not a true wedding or a holiday without Ujhazi chicken soup. It is a long simmering soup made with chicken or rooster, beef and plenty of vegetables. Most often, the vegetables used in this soup are carrots, turnip, mushrooms, onions, garlic, tomatoes, bell peppers, celery, cauliflower and peas. Some of the vegetables are added at the very end as not to overcook them. The spices are simple such as bay leaves, cloves, salt and pepper. The hot soup is served with egg noodles and vegetables and topped with plenty of fresh parsley. The meat can be served separately or added to the soup. In Hungary the meat is often served as a main course with horseradish, bread and butter. My favourite gluten-free bread to serve with this meal, is gluten-free artisan bread
