The easiest Chicken Noodle Soup~Brenda’s Chicken Noodle Soup

on January 10, 2018

Winter is here.

There is nothing more comforting than a warm bowl of chicken noodle soup to give you the feel goods from the chills of winter. This recipe is so easy. When the kiddos are feeling under the weather this is on the menu.  When I want  a good bowl of soup this is on the menu.  When we are under the weather I add noodles.  When we just want a good bowl of soup I add dumplings instead of noodles.

What you will need:

1-12.5oz can of chicken meat (I use canned chicken its easier, it looks like a tuna can but bigger, when I have the time I will boil a whole chicken in water, onions, garlic and celery salt and pepper)

1- 32oz carton of chicken broth

1-tablespoon of oil

3-4 cloves of garlic

1-med onion

1-small package of carrots

water

1 package of wide egg noodles

2 tablespoons of chicken broth base

salt and pepper

Start by sauteing chopped onions and chopped garlic in large pot, salt and pepper to taste with about a table spoon of vegetable oil.  IMG_1671

Saute till sweated

Don’t begin a, well lets say a conversation/discussion/disagreement with your husband where you may be distracted because this will happen.

This is burnt you do not want your onions and garlic to look like this.    IMG_1672Let’s start over. Saute onions and garlic in pot.

Add chopped carrots, chopped celery and drained chicken. If you start with raw chicken the water you boil the chicken in would be your base for the soup.  Stir around.

Stir in chicken broth. Fill empty chicken broth carton with water add to the pot. Stir together. Simmer on med-low. Add 2-3 tablespoons of chicken base.

When noodles are tender it is ready to serve.

My favorite side with chicken noodle soup is buttered crackers.  I’ll dunk them in the soup.  Let them sit around the bowl. I’m a crackers in my soup kinda lady.

Yep life is better with chicken noodle soup and buttered crackers.  IMG_1682
