So, to start on this challenge, I've picked Chicken Noodle Soup. Since we have to assume that this is a new person starting out with no or very few staples, I've included the prices for each thing. This is a base for some future recipes, so as Mr WhatsCooking points out - in a real kitchen, the noodle is the garnish for the chicken noodle soup. So we'll cook the noodles separately and add them to the bowl before the broth. I'll start with the recipe, and put the shopping list at the end. This is my recipe for the whole family, not just one person, so I've added a little extra chicken for flavour. If you don't have any leftover chicken carcasses lying around, you can just use 3 or 4 chicken leg quarters and brown them first. The challenge is for one person, so there would be plenty of soup leftover.
