This recipe includes what you would exptect from homemade chicken noodle soup – tender chicken, wholesome vegetables, and comforting noodles simmered in a flavorful broth. I’m telling you it’s the perfect go-to recipe for chilly evenings.

The thing that makes this quick is you use cooked chicken.

This is a perfect recipe to use that store bought rotisserie chicken. I actually like to cook up a bunch of chicken breasts in my slow cooker along with a little chicken broth. Also, I season the chicken with a little onion powder, garlic powder, and paprika. Cook for 8 or so hours. Then I shredded it or allow it to cool and dice it up. Next, I bag it up in quart sized freezer bags and freeze. Then, I have it on hand already to go for recipes just like this.

This soup begins by cooking some onion, carrots, and celery with a little butter until tender. Now in some garlic and cook for a minute. Then add in chicken broth, salt, pepper, parsley, and the cooked chicken. Bring it all to a boil. Add in the pasta and simmer for about 10 -12 minutes until the pasta is tender. I used medium shell pasta, but use what kind of pasta you like. Also know that this soup is generous on the noodles. This is the way my family likes it. If it’s too much pasta for your liking, feel free to reduce the amount you use.

This soup is so simple. Enjoy a steamy bowl of this soul-soothing classic ready to warm your heart and satisfy those taste buds! I have a feeling this recipe will be one you will be making often.
