After church today, Milady and I were talking about lunch and I started poking around in the pantry. The 'fridge held some leftover chicken that I peeled from the bone. I also found a half-bag of petite carrots leftover from Christmas. The pantry revealed a box of Swanson's chicken broth and a bag of egg noodles.
I put the chicken, carrots and broth in a pot and let it simmer for awhile. Then I dropped in a double handful of egg noodles.
This isn't your Mother's Chicken Noodle Soup, and it's certainly not that ersatz mess they put in cans. It's quick, easy, and very good on a cold Sunday afternoon.
Cooking doesn't have to be hard.
