Chicken Noodle Soup!

So this past week, everyone in the house has been sick on some level. Sneezey, coughing, runny nose, stuffed up, fever, etc.. The perfect meal time cure for any sickness is SOUP! And what better than an all American favorite like chicken noodle?

I enjoy my chicken noodle with crackers (saltines, oyster crackers) - but it is also good served up all on it's own.... Mmmm soupy goodness!!

1 small onion, chopped
2 stalks of celery, chopped
2 Tbl olive oil
2 Tbl each salt & pepper
2 cooked chicken breasts, diced
1 Lb Vermicelli noodles
Roughly 5-6 C chicken broth (enough to cover)


Heat your pan to a medium temperature and drizzle olive oil to coat the bottom of pan. Cook onions until translucent - about 5-10 mins.

Add chopped carrots and celery to cooked onion..

Cook for 10-15 mins or until carrots and celery are tender..

Add in your cooked chicken, also add salt & pepper..

Cover with chicken broth... and bring to a slight boil..

Cook the noodles in the broth. They soak up all the flavors in the soup pot. Noodles should be al dente.

All done!! Let cool and serve with crackers or as is. Wonderful for a cold day - or to soothe whatever ales you!

  1. Hi there Caitlin!

    My name is Steve Walters and I recently started blogging at, which is currently being updated with recipes, but in the next few months will be my vehicle for covering the food and restaurant scene in Bangkok Thailand.

    I am now in the process of meeting as many food bloggers as I can and I found your site recently and was pretty impressed. I've added your site to my Foodie Blogs list here: and would also like to add you to my blogroll.

    If you could add my site to your blogroll and write back to let me know it has been added (foodie [at] I will add you to mine as well and the exchange would be greatly appreciated!

    As you might imagine I am very excited to get moved to Bangkok and get started on covering the food scene there as I feel it is an area that isn't well covered by English speaking bloggers. I plan on adding loads of great reviews, pictures and even video and will be holding contests as well. It should be fun, entertaining and informative for everyone that visits.

    Thank you so much in advance for adding me to your blogroll and I look forward to reading your posts (I've subscribed!) and maybe even featuring some of your own posts as I do plan on a weekly roundup of Thai themed recipes and posts from other food bloggers.

    Warm regards,

    P.S. If you are on Twitter I would love to have you as a follower and I follow back:
