Here is how to make my favorite chicken noodle soup. It's hearty, but not heavy in fat and calories. It makes a nice lunch, but can be used as a complete dinner!


2 chicken breast halves; cooked and chunked (This may be leftover chicken, or you may co
2 tablespoons butter or margarine; (for vegetables)
1 cup Onions; chopped
1 cup carrots; chopped
1/2 cup Celery; chopped
2 cans chicken broth; (about 14 oz. to 15 oz. each)
1 1/2 cups egg noodles, medium-sized; uncooked
salt and pepper; to taste

Original recipe makes 6



Melt 2 tablespoons of butter or margarine in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add 1 cup chopped onion, 1 cup chopped carrots, and 1/2 cup chopped celery. Saute for about 10 minutes, until the onions and celery are clear, and the carrots are soft. Add the chunked chicken, and season with salt and pepper to taste. Transfer the chicken/vegetable mixture to a medium to large pot. Add 2 cans of chicken broth, and 1 1/2 cups of uncooked noodles. Place over medium heat, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover pot with a lid, and simmer about 15 minutes, until the noodles are cooked through and all the flavors are blended. Ladle soup into individual serving bowls. Serve with saltine crackers. Guaranteed to make you feel better, if you are feeling under the weather!

Love this. I too added the thyme and bay leaf (2 or 3), used chicken stock and broth combo. I dislike egg noodles and my husband is diabetic, so substituted whole wheat mini rotini. I crave this soup. Have made it several times since finding the recipe when we were sick last winter.

Wow! Amazed at how good this is to be so quick and simple. Used stock and added 1 bay leaf and a little dried thyme. Wonderful!

Thanks for sharing this recipe! I added a couple bay leaves, 1/2 tsp of thyme, a third cut-up chicken breast and a third can of broth, just to make it go further. My kids loved it and so did I!
