homemade chicken noodle soup

happy thursday, everyone!
i wasn’t going to post this until tomorrow but i thought that since i’m sick in bed today, it was more appropriate to post it now.

i made this monday night because cale was sick. i’m convinced that he gave it to me but in reality it’s probably our pesky allergies. any who, he was congested, stuffed up and his throat was killing him. when i called him at lunch he asked if i could make my chicken noodle soup, how can i say no to that sicky {but kinda hot} voice?

this is seriously the easiest recipe to make. so easy i only have two pictures to go with it.

what you’ll need:
1 tbsp unsalted butter
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped celery
1 cup chopped carrots
1-2 cloves of minced garlic
7 cups of chicken broth {4 cans}
1 3/4 cups of vegetable broth {1 can}
1/2 pound of cubed chicken breast
1/2 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp basil
egg noodles

IMG_5691 {step 1} chop your carrots, celery, onions and throw them in a pot along with the butter and sauté until soft {about 5 minutes}. meanwhile, mince your garlic & start your egg noodles, follow the cooking directions on the packaging.

{step 2} cube your chicken breast, i didn’t take a picture of this because i have decided raw meat looks nasty, haha.

{step 3} add your garlic in with the veggies after your vegetables are soft, stir for about a minute. then add your broth, chicken and spices.

{step 4} bring to a boil then lower the heat, cover and simmer for 30 minutes.

** i don’t like to add my noodles in until it is served in bowls. i feel like if i add them before it is served, the broth can get really starchy. so i keep them separate but that’s totally a personal preference.

{step 5} add as many noodles as you want and spoon some nice, hearty soup in and voila! you have yourself a sickness curing, big bowl of yummy goodness!

this is the best stuff to freeze and save for later. if you do freeze it, obviously, add the noodles in. it will freeze the starch right in!

let me know if you try it out and send me some pictures!

always,
-jess
