If you don't have a "go to" homemade chicken noodle soup recipe...then look no further. This is the easiest thing to make and boy is it good! I've made it two weeks in a row because soups are one of my favorite dinners to make in the fall and winter and especially when the cold symptoms have hit the kids here lately. Soups are easy, healthy and there never seems to be any complaints when we sit down at the dinner table. I know the boxed soups are convenient to throw into your cart at the store, especially when they are on sale, but this homemade chicken noodle tastes so much better and takes no time at all. Check it out...
What you need
1 T butter
1/2 c chopped onion
1/2 c chopped celery
1 c chopped carrots
1/2 t basil
1/2 t oregano
2 cloves garlic
salt & pepper to taste
64 oz chicken broth
1 14.5 oz can vegetable broth
1/2 lb cooked chicken breast-chopped
1 1/2 cup noodles of your choice (I used rotini here but sometimes I use egg noodles)
Melt butter and cook onion, celery & garlic until tender. About 5 minutes.
Add all of the other ingredients and bring to a boil then reduce heat and simmer for about 20 minutes before serving.
I always serve this with soup crackers and a couple of dashes of hot sauce ;) Enjoy friends...
