As promised, here is the chicken soup recipe I told you about. You can see the original here. Both kids cleaned their bowls and one even asked for more (AND IT HAS VEGETABLES IN IT).
Quick and Easy Chicken Noodle Soup
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1/2 cup chopped onion
- 1/2 cup chopped celery
- 4 (14.5 ounce) cans chicken broth
- 1 (14.5 ounce) can vegetable broth
- 1/2 pound chopped cooked chicken breast
- 1 1/2 cups egg noodles
- 1 cup sliced carrots
- 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
- 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
- salt and pepper to taste
Saute the onion celery and carrots in the butter. Add to broths (my chicken broth was made from bouillon rather than canned). Stir in remaining ingredients except noodles. Simmer about 20 minutes. Wait to cook the noodles until you are about ready to serve. Otherwise they get mushy. You could also freeze it without the noodles and then just add noodles when you thaw and cook it.
