Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup

My family loves, loves, loves homemade chicken noodle soup! It is the perfect pick me up on cold winter days and a great soother of upset stomachs and colds. This is so easy to make!

This is my original recipe. I have adapted three different recipes and rarely make it the same twice. Also, feel free to double this recipe. If everyone is home, we have to double it! It also makes wonderful leftovers for work!

Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup

2 small to medium carrots, sliced somewhat thinly
1 small onion or 1/2 medium onion, cut in half and sliced thinly
1 celery stalk, chopped or sliced thinly
1 Tbsp. butter
1.5 quarts chicken stock (I use my homemade stock)
1-2 cups chicken, chopped or shredded
1-2 cups egg noodles
seasonings to taste (I use seasoning salt with no MSG, Italian seasonings, or marjarom with salt & pepper)

Melt butter in your stockpot (5-6 qt.). Saute the vegetables in the butter over medium high heat until tender. Add the chicken stock and chicken. Bring to a gentle boil. Add noodles and seasonings of your preference. Continue to cook until noodles are tender. Serve!

Easy, peasy, eh? Cheap to make too! This recipe is really adaptable too. I made it last night and omitted the celery since I did not have any. I have used mushrooms and other vegetables in this too. If you have homemade noodles, this soup becomes divine!

Have a great day and thanks for reading!
