Chicken noodle soup is good for the soul. Did you know that the origin of chicken soup is traced back thousands of years and versions of the recipe have been enjoyed across the globe! That means it must be pretty great right! It’s also known to be an illness fighting staple because the carrots, onions and celery are known to help strengthen your immune system, fight off viruses and help speed up recovery while the broth provides hydration and chicken supports our immune system. Needless to say, chicken noodle soup should be a go to recipe. Here’s a super simple recipe for you and your family to enjoy.
2 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cooked and shredded or shredded rotisserie chicken
4 Carrots, whole
3 Celery stalks
1/4 tsp Parsley
1/4 tsp Thyme
8 cups Low Sodium Chicken broth
1 cup noodles (Egg noodles are best but I use whatever I have on hand)
Salt and Pepper to taste
Olive Oil Cooking Spray
- Cook and shred chicken. Once finished, set aside.
- Chop up carrots, celery and onion (I prefer to use a food processor for convenience).
- Cover pot with cooking spray and throw in chopped veggies and seasonings. Saute until soft.
- Add Chicken and broth to the pot and bring to a boil.
- Add noodles and allow to cook for around 10 minutes or until the noodles are fully cooked.
It’s as simple as that! A comfort food staple that’s great for cold weather days or fighting off illness.
