  • 1/4 cup dehydrated carrots

  • 3 cups chicken stock
  • 1-1/2 cups whole wheat or regular egg noodles
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 lb. pre-cooked dehydrated chicken or leftover chicken from last night's dinner! At a pinch, use canned chicken in water, and crumble it up—works just FINE!
  • Italian (dried) herbs to taste (about 1/2 teaspoon)
  • salt* and pepper to taste

How to Make "Souper" Easy Chicken Noodle Soup

  1. Use clean cold water or freshly boiled water to rehydrate the dehydrated items above.
  2. When they are sufficiently plump, add the olive oil to a heavy pan on medium heat.
  3. Add the onion and celery, and cook for about 5 minutes.
  4. Add the chicken stock, then add the garlic—crumbled finely, and the carrots, egg noodles, and Italian herbs—and lest we forget the chicken! Then cook for an additional eight minutes.

*IF you need to add salt, do so, BUT be careful NOT to over-salt as the bouillon has salt in it.

Chicken Soup IS Good for the Soul!

There's something about chicken soup—doesn't matter what time of the year you have it—it soothes the soul, mends a cold, and fixes a broken heart!

Don't miss out on serving your soup with your own fresh baked bread! I love a slice of bread with cold butter or margarine on it. It's so delicious when you dip it in the soup... and it melts in your mouth!

This is a very easy meal, quick to prepare too, and what I like is that there's very little clean-up in the kitchen because you're only using one saucepan :-)

I'd like to make a note here that you are free to make this chicken noodle soup, or any of these recipes on our site, using fresh ingredients.

In fact, the recipe eBook lists the quantities of the fresh ingredients too!
