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!
