Chicken Noodle Soup

When the weather is cloudy and the air is cold ad the clouds are threatening rain, Chicken Noodle Soup is one of my go-to comfort foods.  You can open a can if you'd like, but my recipe is darned simple, fast, and has produced good results for a lot of years.

Quick Chicken Noodle Soup

1 rotisserie chicken
2 box Swanson's Chicken Broth
1 bag of shredded carrots
1 bag egg noodles.

Prep and Cooking

Peel that chicken off the bone and cut or tear into bite-sized   Put it in a soup pot, add the shredded carrots and the broth.  Bring to a boil.  Reduce heat to a simmer and add noodles.  Cook for about 10 minutes, or until the noodles are tender and the carrots are tender.

Serve with crackers or crusty bread.  Bon apetit!

That pot above is a half-recipe.  I'll let it simmer for another few minutes, and make myself a bowl.

My recipe is basically the same, but it is soup so ingredients change depending on what is in the fridge.
From a local store I have used their oven roasted thighs, they usually have them on sale too.
And it is easier to find the one bone in each thigh.
I also add a bag of frozen mixed veggies.
Seems like every other time I use rice instead of noodles and the next time, its noodles.
If I feel real ambitious, I can make "top of the pot dumplings".
