Chicken Noodle Soup

Thank you for sharing!

Florida has been kind of cold for being the Sunshine State. I don’t mind because I am originally from Michigan. My husband though is a Florida boy and has been not doing well in these cold snaps. One of his favorite things on a cold day is soup. I made him my chicken noodle soup and it hit the spot.

Chicken Noodle Soup Recipe

I would like to apologize in advance for the simpleness of this recipe. For some things, I don’t follow a recipe per se. Some cooking is better when you fly by the seat of your pants. Sometimes I add garlic, sometimes I add thyme, sometimes, red pepper flakes.

The best part of home cooking is that you can make a recipe yours. The basis of chicken noodle soup is chicken and chicken broth. What else you put into it is up to you, here is my favorite version.

I always crave chicken soup when the weather gets chilly or I start getting signs of a cold. Chicken soup has so many healing properties! 

Chicken thighs are my usual chicken choice for soups and casseroles because it is a budget-friendly pick and it is hard to overcook dark meat.

Tips for Making an Amazing Chicken Soup 

  • Make your own Chicken and or Vegetable Stock. Check out this Chicken Stock recipe from Spend With Pennies. 
  • Don’t overcook the veggies. You want them to be cooked, but not mushy. 
  • If your stove has a simmer setting, use that once your soup comes to the first boil. 
  • Soup is lunchbox friendly, just serve in a thermos. 
  • Soup is also freezer friendly, just leave out the noodles before freezing. When you reheat the soup, cook the noodle separately and add them at the end.
