CREAMY CHICKEN NOODLE SOUP — Frozen egg noodles make this chicken soup with a creamy broth extra special.
I plan all of my meals ahead of time, and after days of nearly 80 degree weather, I felt like a genius for having this Creamy Chicken Noodle Soup on the menu when we woke up to 8 inches of snow earlier this week.
This is true comfort food, and the “homemade” noodles and creamy texture just add to the comfort level.
The noodles are commonly found in the freezer section of most grocery stores, alongside other frozen pastas.
This is the chicken soup recipe my mom always used, so I’m not kidding when I say it’s a family favorite.
In fact, I’ve been making this soup for my own family for over 20 years now, and I’ve never found a basic chicken noodle soup recipe I like more than this one.
If you want to make this soup even more filling, try adding some peeled, cubed potatoes.
If you’re lucky enough to have leftovers, I think this tastes even better the next day. I hope you love this chicken noodle soup as much as we do!
