Add the noodles, chicken, and parsley. Stir until fully coated. Transfer to a greased 9×13 pan.

  We LOVED this!  Forget 2nds, we went back for 4th’s!!!!!  This recipe came together very easily, but I did use a few shortcuts.  I had a jar of chicken and a bag of homemade noodles on hand, so I used those instead with great results!

I prefer my Chicken Noodle Soup with spaghetti noodles instead of egg noodles anyways, so I may always choose to use that type of pasta in this recipe.

 

 

Happy Cooking!  This really is delicious, you outta try it soon….

Almost Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup

  I am slow getting around this morning.  I am still recovering from a bout of the ol’ Flu bug going around my house.  Everyone but Destiny and Paxton took their turn with it.  Yuck!

Nothing sounded good but comfort food, like Mom’s Chicken and Rice soup, which I will share later, and this:

Almost Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup.

This soup uses homemade shortcuts……..the end result?  Chicken Noodle Soup like Grandma’s, but made in a third of the time! Which is super important when you can barely stand to make it.

Simmer until noodles are soft.

This soup tastes so good! You won’t believe what a difference homemade noodles make!!!!!
