Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup

Chicken noodle soup. It feels like a grandma’s hug.

I made it today. It was raining and I had the sniffles, plus I have some chicken leftover from a roast I made.

So this is what you need:

 Heat some oil in a pan and sauté the veg. Don’t forget to season! Nothing worse than a bland soup. Blech.

Cook the veggies till they reduce down like-a this:

 At this juncture in your soup making adventure, you want to invite the chicken to the party. Make sure to introduce the chicken to all the other guests in the pot that have already loosened up and become flavorful. You don’t want the chicken to feel lonely and out of place. That’s not nice.

Don’t forget to include the noodles! They are in the title of the soup after all. Those noodles are some thirsty bitches though. So give them some water. (I don’t know what’s happening but I’m gonna ride this soup-party metaphor till the wheels fall off).

Now everyone is in the pot-party (not that kind of pot but that’s ok too, no judgement here). Let them simmer and get to know one another for 30mins. Once the noodles are soft and all the flavors have let themselves shine then it’s done! 

Curl up with your soup and some trashy TV and feel better boo!
