The Best Chicken Noodle Soup Ever

by Rebekahcooked up on October 30, 2015

Alright, no small talk this time. I’m cutting right to the chase. This is the best chicken soup of all time.

I know because I ate it (twice!), but I also have to share a funny story.

The whole reason I was making chicken soup in the first place is because Dave was feeling a little under the weather. He wasn’t very hungry (who is, when they feel gross?) but I’m a firm believer that when you’re sick, you should eat, because your body needs those nutrients and calories to do its thing and get you better.

So I made soup – which has to be one of the most Zen processes there is. I just love standing over a pot, stirring, sampling, seasoning and creating just the right flavor.

Dave came home, we relaxed on the couch and watched some baseball (go Royals!) And when dinner time rolled around, he ladled himself a half bowl and we sat down to eat.

And then, he went back for a second – and so did I (and my first bowl wasn’t a half. Haha)! Holy moly, this soup is good.

  2. Haha! they are yellow carrots! I had some rainbow ones that I finished up – there’s some purple ones in there somewhere too. But corn would be a good addition!

  5. Thanks for the recipe. I made this for dinner yesterday and I did not change the recipe just went with it as it is listed. I added the Garlic in with the vegs and stirred to make sure it did not burn. By the way you omitted the garlic in the written instructions. I have to agree with you this is absolutely a great Chicken soup that I would eat even if I was down with the flu which I hope not to get. It will be great on cold rainy days this winter. I made Sourdough Garlic Toast, buttered, to go along with it and for dessert we had a couple of Oatmeal Raisin Cookies and Coffee. Thanks again.
