Quick and Easy Chicken Noodle Soup

Quick and easy chicken noodle soup loaded with fresh vegetables, herbs, and homemade noodles. You won’t believe how easy this soup is! I make some delicious homemade egg noodles to put into the soup. I swear that it is better the next day, the egg noodles soak up some of the broth and taste incredible. More on the egg noodles later…let me tell you about this amazing soup! I can’t think of anything more comforting and warming than a big bowl of homemade chicken noodle soup. When the weather turns cold it is perfect to just snuggle up on the couch under a blanket with this soup. If you thought that a bowl of delicious homemade soup is only for a Sunday dinner, think again! You won’t be spending your entire day making this soup! In fact, you can have this dinner ready in under an hour, perfect for a crazy weeknight meal. This soup is the perfect answer for anyone that is feeling under the weather. Serve with a side of cornbread and I bet it will cure you of any sickness. 😉

    That looks so delicious, and would be most soothing right now when it is -10 degrees outside. I guess I will have to make my own since it can’t be cyber passed….DARN!!

    There’s nothing like homemade chicken noodle soup! And the corn bread by the side would set it off perfectly.

    I love that you shredded the chicken– that is the best way for chicken noodle soup.

    I just got hit with a bad cold, and my husband made this for me for dinner. It is SO good! And easy enough for my husband, who isn’t much of a cook, to make. We increased the recipe a bit and used a lot of dried spices, plus some leftover rosemary from the garden that I had stowed in the freezer. Thanks for a great recipe!
