Awesome-Tasting Food!! // chicken noodle soup

Being winter, you just have to have chicken noodle soup at least once...or twice.  It isn't my favorite thing in the world, but it tastes great on a cold night.

Chicken Noodle Soup

  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1 cup chopped carrots
  • 1 cup chopped celery
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon poultry seasoning
  • 6 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 4 cups cubed peeled potatoes
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups cubed cooked chicken breast
  • 2 cups uncooked yolk-free wide noodles
  • 1 cup fat-free evaporated milk

    In a stockpot, saute the onion, carrots, and celery in oil for 5 minutes or until tender. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer. Stir in the flour, oregano, thyme and poultry seasoning until blended. Gradually add the broth, potatoes and salt; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 15-20 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Stir in chicken and noodles; simmer for 10 minutes or until noodles are tender. Reduce heat. Stir in milk; heat through (do not boil).  Makes 8 servings.

    And speaking of cold nights, has anyone been getting snow? For some reason this year Kansas hasn't gotten a lot of snow. Usually we get enough to make forts a time or two. This year our snow hasn't even stuck to the ground. Kinda sad.

    1. We haven't received a lot of snow either. Only maybe a total of 5 inches or less this whole winter. And usually by the end of the day it's all gone. Andrew is pretty disappointed that there hasn't been more snow.

      By the way, your chicken noodle soup sounds better than ours. Our recipe doesn't have milk or potatoes in it.



    Come on, I dare you too... :) I'd love to know you were here.
