I’ve been feeling the need to make comfort food lately. The cooler temperatures and shorter days are sure signs that winter is on the way. What better way to feel cozy than a wonderful, warm, homemade bowl of chicken noodle soup. This is my own recipe that I created through trial and error, so you may want to tweak it to fit your own taste. For example, my husband is not a fan of celery or onions, so I leave them out. If it was just me, I’d have not only celery and onions, but I’d throw in mushrooms, scallions and whatever else I had in the fridge! I call this version of chicken noodle soup the simple version.
Chicken Noodle Soup
2 frozen chicken breasts
6 cups chicken broth
1 cup chopped carrots, pre-cooked
2 cups pasta, pre-cooked
salt, pepper and onion powder, to taste
Place chicken and broth in crock pot and cook on medium for 6-8 hours. Remove the chicken, place in bowl to shred. Return shredded chicken to crock pot. Toss in the carrots and pasta. Cook for another 30-45 minutes. Stir occasionally. You may need to add more hot water, the pasta will soak up the water once it is added.
Serve soup with rolls or crackers. Enjoy!
