This recipe kind of goes against what I’m about. I enjoy cooking for hours, really start to finish. But once in a while you get a craving and want some chicken noodle soup at 9 o’clock at night and just don’t have time to cook a chicken.
I know plenty of people who aren’t like me who prefer a quick cook, and this is a simple, delicious, easy chicken noodle soup recipe that you could probably pass off as something you’ve slaved over for hours.
Easy Chicken Noodle Soup
Start out with a large pot with your oil on medium heat. Chop your onion and stir in. Let this cook while you clean and slice your carrots and celery
Clean and slice up carrots and celery and stir in. Cook for 10 minutes
Add your chicken broth and water, cover and bring to a boil
Now this is the biggest time saver, we're using a pre-cooked rotisserie chicken you can get at any supermarket. Remove skin, tendons, and anything unwanted
Here's another easy part - these awesome little packets are packed full of flavor and even come with some dried vegetables and noodles. You can find these in Shop Rite in the Jewish section. We're going to be using three packages for extra flavor
You can use linguini or any pasta you wish. I like to break these into about four pieces before adding in
Now, you don't want to add the rest of the ingredients too early. You should let the broth and vegetables boil for 20-30 minutes or until you are able to start breaking the carrots with a spoon. At this point you can add in the flavor packets and noodles. Stir well, cover and cook 20 minutes
Stir in the chicken, cover and cook for 15 more minutes
