CHICKEN NOODLE SOUP

Chicken Noodle Soup is one of those old fashioned recipes that we all know and love, made with savory chicken in a seasoned broth with wholesome vegetables and noodles. I like to serve this with garlic bread or crackers. The crispy texture goes perfectly with the hot seasoned chicken stock.

I know a lot of people who swear by chicken noodle soup to treat a cold. It certainly hits the spot during those times, although honestly, it’s probably the hot water that’s more soothing than the soup itself.

I love putting a big pot of this soup on the stove on cold rainy days, because it somehow just makes everything feel better.

HOW TO MAKE THIS CHICKEN NOODLE SOUP RECIPE WITH ROTISSERIE CHICKEN

Instead of using raw chicken, you can speed up the process by using already cooked rotisserie chicken. Cut up the whole chicken, discarding the bones. After you saut the vegetables and add everything to the pot, simmer for 10 minutes, then add the chicken and simmer for an additional 10 minutes, add the cooked pasta and serve.

If I want to make this in a hurry, sometimes I even buy the pre-chopped vegetables along with the rotisserie chicken. It’s the fastest way to make this chicken noodle soup recipe, and always turns out good.
