Easy Chicken Noodle Soup Recipe

Is there anything more comforting than a steamy bowl of chicken noodle soup? I love soup and chicken noodle has been one of my favorites since childhood.

I always have homemade chicken broth in my freezer which makes cooking this soup super quick. Don't worry if you don't have homemade broth on hand, this soup will be just as delicious with store bought broth.

I used to eat Campbell's chicken noodle as a child but this chicken noodle soup recipe is so much better because you can control the salt content and use less doughy, more delicate noodles.

I've used chicken breast but you can use any part of the chicken you prefer. This soup is all the medicine you need when you're down with a cold or flu. It's also perfect for lunch with some crusty bread or saltine crackers.
