When you are sick, there is nothing like Chicken Noodle Soup. Sometimes, I choose to make my own. In the time it takes you to open a can, you can have homemade soup.
Okay, I lied. It takes longer to make homemade soup (obviously). BUT, it doesn't take as long as you think and it is SO much better. You can change up the ingredients according to what you like, in the portions you prefer!
When I am sick, if I have enough energy, I whip up a huge pot of this stuff and eat off it for several days. Warm, comforting, and just how I like it! Thank you to my mom, who taught me that there is nothing like homemade soup to make you feel better. Someday, I'll make it for my kids, just like she made it for me!
1 chicken breast, already cooked (or poach the chicken while you complete the rest of the soup)
3 stalks of celery
2 full size carrots
several green onions
egg noodles, or homemade noodles
Chop celery, carrots, and onions. Bring a few cups of chicken broth to boil in a large pot. Add celery and carrots. Cook until almost tender. Add more broth to fill pot, and cook noodles until tender. Stir in onions and chicken and heat through.
When storing, make sure there is sufficient broth, as the noodles will absorb some broth in the fridge.
