On January 30, I blogged that winter is my least favorite season, and I find it difficult to enjoy except for Christmas, snow, and soup. I posted the recipe for Creamy Tomato Tortellini Soup. Since we finally have a chance for measurable snow over the next few days (I'll believe it when I see it!) and you can't beat a bowl of soup on a snowy day, I thought I'd post another favorite soup recipe, Quick and Easy Chicken Noodle Soup. This is another Pinterest find which I pinned from a site called Kitchme. You can click on the website's name to view the recipe, but if you keep reading, you'll find it here.
~ 1 tbsp butter
~ 1⁄2 cup chopped onions
~ 1⁄2 cup chopped celery
~ 4 cans (14.5 ounces each) chicken broth
~ 1 can (14.5 ounce) vegetable broth
~ 1⁄2 lb cooked (chopped) chicken breast
~ 1 1⁄2 cup egg noodles
~ 1 cup sliced carrots
~ 1⁄2 tsp dried basil (I substitute onion powder to taste)
~ 1⁄2 tsp dried oregano (I substitute Italian seasoning to taste)
~ salt and pepper to taste
In a large pot over medium heat, melt butter.
Cook onion and celery in butter until just tender, approximately 5 minutes.
Pour in chicken and vegetable broths.
Stir in chicken, noodles, carrots, basil, oregano, salt and pepper.
Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer 20 minutes before serving.
I usually serve with butter crackers, but salad and rolls could be added for a complete meal.
