The Grill Chicken Vegetable Soup

Heat the oven to 325 degrees. Place the chicken in a 9-inch square baking pan and season the chicken to taste with salt and pepper. Brush with the melted butter. Bake until cooked through, 45 minutes. Refrigerate the chicken 30 minutes, then remove the skin and bones, and shred into 1-inch pieces.


Cook the macaroni in boiling water until al dente, 6 to 8 minutes. Drain and set aside.


Cook the shallots in the butter in a large saucepot over medium heat until the shallots start softening, 5 minutes. Add the water, bay leaves and chicken bouillon and bring to a boil; boil for 5 minutes.


Add the onion, celery, carrots and green beans and cook 3 minutes over medium-high heat. Add the leeks and zucchini and cook another 3 minutes, stirring occasionally.


Add the chicken and return to a boil. Cook 3 minutes at medium boil then add the tomatoes. Season with salt and hot sauce to taste. Remove the bay leaves.


To serve, place the cooked noodles on the bottom of each of 8 soup bowls and ladle 1 cup of soup over the top of each. Garnish with parsley sprigs.
