This chicken noodle soup is a recipe worth saving. I think everyone needs to have a go-to chicken noodle soup recipe. It’s nice to enjoy a hot bowl of soup on a cold winter day or especially when your sick (I know totally cliché, but so true!).
Everyone has their own preferences as to what vegetables they like in their soups. This is one of the benefits of chicken noodle soup, you can customize it to your liking. I must note, this is not a soup you want to use store-bought chicken broth for. Since the chicken broth dominates most of the flavor of this soup, you will want to make your own. I have a super easy recipe here on the blog. I’m telling you this recipe will taste a thousand times better with homemade chicken broth.
