Fun with Food Friday – In-a-Hurry Chicken Noodle Soup
Welcome to Week 5 of Fun with Food Friday! (ALERT: Read to the bottom for extra bonus entries opportunity!)
Check The Not-So-Secret Confessions of a First Time Mom for another recipe review this week!She just found out she’s expecting again, so head over and congratulate her!
Today’s recipe comes from ME! I have a big pile up of great recipes from you guys, but what my sick little girl really needed last night was…chicken noodle soup.
This is my speedy version. I prefer using homemade chicken broth made from bones cooked for a few hours. But I don’t always think ahead enough to cook a chicken earlier in the week, or even to start the broth early enough in the day, but sometimes I still need homemade chicken noodle soup.

(again, forgive my non-existent measurements: this is a little-of-this-a-little-of-that recipe!)
minced garlic, (lots, if you’re sick!)
**********************We’ll be doing this again next Friday, and we need your recipes!
Chop up all the vegis!
2.) Cook the chicken breasts. I usually boil them for a few minutes and then turn them down to medium-low until they’re done all the way through.
3.) While the chicken is cooking, saute the vegis with a little oil or butter until they’re soft.
4.) I usually have canned chicken broth on hand or make my own, (see above!) but this time I was in a hurry and had no canned, so I used bouillion!
|Please don’t use the icky cheap kinds that are almost 100% MSG. Ew!
5.) Add water in with the bouillion cubes.
6.) Bring to a boil and add the noodles! Don’t be shy. Unless you’re afraid of noodles.
I say bring ‘em on.
Noodles are one of God’s gifts to mankind.
7.) Meanwhile, your chicken should be done, and you can cut it/pull it, whatever. Get it into bite-sized pieces.
8.) Toss the chicken in!
9.) Add salt, pepper, and any other herbs you might find appealing. I usually add dried thyme.
