Chicken Noodle Soup

Chicken Noodle Soup

Somewhere I have read that Chicken Noodle Soup is really important when you are sick and will make you feel a lot better. I still can't figure out if it is really the truth, or is it just the thought of it? Anyway, this year chicken noodle soup became me and my husband's favourite meal of the winter. We just can't get enough of it and it is now on our weekly menu! And boy, did this delicious warm soup kept s extra warm during the past cold snowy nights! Chicken noodle soup is not just very tasty, it is very quick and easy to make as well! If you simply don't have some of the vegetables, add another, you won't even taste the difference. In this specific recipe I love using macaroni noodles, but you can play along with other types of noodles as well. We are fortunate to have a lovely chicken supplier shop here in Wellington, and I buy the chicken breast fillets packets at a very reasonable price. Or you can simply use off-cut pieces of chicken if you don't want to use chicken breasts. For me, chicken breast fillets are easy to work with and that also saves you some time if you are a busy working mom and always on the run. The reason for my blog is to keep a journal with quick and easy recipes. The world has become such a busy place, you are always looking to save up time to fit in that something-else to do!
