I would always make my chicken noodle Soup for my boys when they didn't feel well because, well, Chicken Noodle Soup makes everything better! It's comfort in a bowl. This recipe is simple yet will take a little time but it is so worth the effort. It will make a large pot that I like to put in individual serving containers and freeze for when you need a little love. With all of us at a "Stay Home" mandate, this would be a great time to put a pot of chicken noodle soup on your cooktop and curl up with a hot bowl of soup and binge watch your favorite Netflix show.
“I love chicken noodle soup, my kids have loved it since they were little. It's a healthy low cal dish for the family that feeds the soul.”
