Family Favorite Chicken Noodle Soup

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 50 mins

This is a hit in my household, specially when someone has the cold or the flu. It tastes like it takes all day to make it thanks to the store-bought frozen homemade noodles and a pre-cooked herb flavored rotisserie chicken! Try it, I guarantee you'll like it. It is basic, yet so comforting an on the table in 1 hour. P.S. We also top it off with more black pepper and parmesan cheese. And I sometimes throw in some green beans too.

Good soup. Followed ingredients as is except I didn't know what all purpose seasoning is so I used Emeril's Essence. For the chicken I used recipe #234465 (costs about half the cost of purchasing a rotisserie chicken). Also, in the directions it doesn't say when to add the garlic and I almost missed that step - just added it with the chicken but next time I'll saute it with the veggies. Overall, easy and yummy.

Awesome recipe! I changed it a little and only added 2 large garlic cloves and added another bag of noodles cause one wasn't quite enough for me. Next time I won't use as much pepper either..for some reason I could taste it really well...could just be my tounge tho.
