Easy Chicken Noodle Soup

"This is something I adapted from my Better Homes & Gardens Cookbook. You can really put anything you want in there, and the taste is great. I made it last night using leftover turkey breast instead of chicken, and I served it with fresh biscuits."

    Wow, this came together fast! I didn't use noodles because my frozen veggie mix had peas and corn in it so that was enough starch for me. I will make this for a quick lunch all the time. Thank you.

    I thought there was too much oregano after I tasted it so I cut it with an additional cup of water and a pinch of salt. After my adjustments it tasted very good. It was EXTREMELY easy to make and my children enjoyed it too so I will certainly make it again.

    I fixed this soup for some friends of mine who were all sick with flu. I used one small bag of frozen seasoning blend (onions, celery, & bell peppers) and one small bag of frozen sliced carrots. I also added about a tablespoon of butter buds to give that buttery taste. It turned out wonderful!

    As has been previously noted in the reviews, this is really good and REALLY easy. I had everything on the ingredient list except red pepper flakes, which I just substituted for a little black pepper. It tastes great. Might be worth noting that with the macaroni noodles I used, the pasta continues to absorb the liquid after the cooking is done. All that means is that if you wait a while before serving, you'll have more of a thin stew than a soup. Just as tasty though!

    Good, easy, inexpensive, healthy, worth repeating. My wife made it and said that next time she would like to make two batches one to eat right away and another to freeze.

    This was an easy, quick way to have a nice comfort food favorite. I used a seasoning called "Swamp Dust" from Lousiana which contains salt, pepper, garlic and a few other good things. Also, instead of red pepper flakes, I used a couple dashes of hot sauce. Very Yummy!!!!


<p>I am not a very interesting person. I like to cook, I like to eat, and I love my husband Rick and my son Hugh. Thats pretty much it when it comes to me, that and an obsession for cats, especially our 2, Bunny &amp; Bindy Sue. We live in Lake Dallas, TX, and have been married since August 16th, 2003. Hugh was born October 19th, 2009. Rick and I met on the internet in September 2001, and when we were married I moved from NJ where I grew up, to the big, scary, strange city of Dallas. There are things I like about Dallas and things I don't. I am definitely homesick for some real NY style pizza.</p>
