This Easy Chicken Noodle Soup recipe is the best choice for helping anyone get over a cold, flu or virus. Not only is it hearty and healthy, it is super easy to make. I love recipes that are simple and semi-homemade, and this one is a great choice for anyone who likes homemade without hours of slaving over the stove.
Making an easy chicken noodle soup is something everyone can manage in just a few minutes. This soup takes less than half an hour to prepare if your chicken is already cooked. One great way to make that happen even faster is to batch cook chicken and freeze in 2 cup portions for use in things like this. You could even pull apart a rotisserie chicken and use it to create an even faster meal.
The basic ingredients, seasonings and rich chicken broth of this easy chicken noodle soup are just what the doctor ordered. For a quick lunch or dinner, you can throw this together easily. If you are fond of freezer meals, you can prepare everything but the pasta in this and freeze in well labeled containers or bags for use later. All you would have to do is thaw overnight in the refrigerator, toss into a stockpot and add your pasta.While it heats up, the pasta cooks and you have a super delicious easy freezer meal to prepare.
