Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup

I originally thought I would wait until next fall to post this recipe, but the latest cold snap has changed my mind.  I am not a fan of cold weather at all but soup makes it more tolerable.  This Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup recipe is basic but so good!

No matter what the situation is, this soup is the answer.  Not feeling good?  Need a meal to take to someone?  Wanting to warm up?  This Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup recipe is the answer to all of those questions.  This is one meal that I can count on everyone eating and being happy about it!

The fact that everyone loves this soup is great, but how easy it is to make puts it at the top of my list!  I almost always have cooked chicken on hand or at least in my freezer.  I like to buy rotisserie chickens at Sams Club and shred them up to freeze for quick meals like this.  You could cook some chicken in the Crockpot, Instant Pot, on the stove top or in the oven.  Just use whatever method you like.

This Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup recipe is so quick to throw together.  I usually start heating the broth while I’m chopping the carrots and celery.  You can have this delicious homemade soup on the table in just a little over 30 minutes.

You can use any kind of noodles you like.  I personally like the Kluski style noodles the best.  I have used Amish noodles before just to change things up and they were good too.  You can even use just regular egg noodles if that’s what you like.  No matter what noodles you use, I guarantee this soup will disappear in no time.  Try it for dinner tonight!
