Chicken Noodle Soup

I originally had a different post planned for today but since I'm sick I decided it was the perfect day to share my Chicken Noodle Soup! I have a couple different versions I make but this one is quick & easy which makes it the perfect weeknight meal!


Ingredients

1 package egg noodles
1 bag carrot chips
1 package chicken tenderloins
2 Swanson chicken broth
2 chicken bouillon cubes
Garlic powder to taste

Directions

While the chicken is boiling on the stove (I use the skinny chicken tenderloins so they cook faster and used one package for this batch), I put the Swanson chicken broth (both containers that you see above) and carrots (Jared loves carrots so we use a lot but this part is completely customizable) on the stove to boil in a separate pot. I use chicken bouillon cubes (usually two) & a little garlic in my soup to give it some extra chicken flavor & taste but that is completely optional. A little salt and pepper doesn't hurt either ; )

After the chicken has been boiled completely through, I sit it out on the cutting board to cool before I shred it. If you don't let it cool first, your fingers will be on fire : )

Once the carrots & broth have boiled for several minutes softening the carrots, I add the shredded chicken and the egg noodles. (Hint: if you put in some of the water you were boiling the chicken in, it makes the soup taste better!)  Once the noodles are cooked, dinner is served : ). We make grilled cheese to go with it which is the perfect combo for this dreary weather!

This makes the perfect amount for two people but you can double it to make a big pot for a bigger family or so you have leftovers!
