20-Minute Chicken Noodle Soup Recipe – the ultimate comfort food that never fails. Quick and easy chicken noodle soup to beat the cold or just satisfy the craving.
I am happy to say that we are finally past the cold that has been going around our family for almost three weeks. It made the round and it seems (fingers crossed, knock on wood!) that is is gone. But when it was here – it was ugly. It’s so sad to see the kiddos without the energy and excitement, not even wanting to play with their favorite toys. They lack energy and appetite. The only thing that my family will eat while dealing with a cold/flu is homemade chicken noodle soup. THIS chicken noodle soup. I crave it on cold, dreary days because it is the ultimate comfort food. Not everything has to be smothered in cheese. (Ahem, did I just say that??)
HOW TO MAKE HOMEMADE CHICKEN NOODLE SOUP
This recipe is so easy that you make it a couple of times and you will know it by heart.
It all starts with browning the chicken on both sides in just a little bit of olive oil. It helps to bring out the flavor of chicken in the soup. Same with the veggies. Sauteing them just a little bit before the liquid is added creates the delicious flavor for this soup.
Just a couple notes about the veggie mix I used in this recipe. I used baby carrots for two reasons: they are sweeter and you don’t need to peel them. Just diced them up and throw into the stock pot. Also, my kiddos love baby carrots so I always have them on hand! I didn’t use an onion in this recipe because our kids don’t like it and I don’t feel the need for it but you can definitely add 1/2 of a cup of diced onion to the veggie mix. Like with almost every savory recipe on my site, I encourage you to adjust it to your likings.
