My Family's Favorite Fast Chicken Soup

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by JackieOhNo

This is a simple, quick recipe that I have relied on for almost 30 years. The ingredients are generally on hand so it is easy to throw together when someone in the house is not feeling up to par. I have doubled and tripled this recipe to freeze some for later.

Excellent!! I doubled the recipe so we could have leftovers. The flavor is wonderful and so comforting. Even though I doubled the recipe, I still only used one large chicken breast (skinless/boneless is what I had on hand) and it provided plenty of chicken for us. I will definitely make this my go-to quick soup recipe for sick days - or anytime a chicken soup craving hits. Thanks!! P.S. I used whole wheat egg noodles. :)
