Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup
It’s officially winter here in New England, and it’s been COLD. Over the past few weeks, there have been a few viruses and infections going around the kids school, and they were kind enough to bring some home and share with us 🙂 Since we’ve been feeling yucky, Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup, Chicken and Rice Soup, Chicken and Dumplings, etc. have been frequently been on the menu. This Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup Recipe can be made a few different ways. When I’m feeling 100%, I tend to use fresh ingredients as much as possible. I let it simmer on the stovetop for several hours, and toss in the pasta when it’s close to complete. When I’m feeling ok, but in a rush, I use a mixture of fresh, frozen, canned ingredients and toss them into the slow cooker to simmer all day and be waiting on us at dinnertime. Rotisserie chicken can also be quickly de-boned and used in a pinch to save time! When I’m sick, I pretty much open some frozen vegetables and canned chicken, toss them into my Dutch Oven on the stove, and dinner is ready in 30 minutes.
- 2 Tbsp butter
- 1 cup chopped onion
- 1cup chopped celery

If cooking in slow cooker, or letting soup simmer on stovetop, wait to add noodles until 20 minutes before serving time, so they don’t get mushy!
