Kid Friendly 30 minute Chicken Noodle Soup



Chicken noodle soup is a fall and winter time staple. It is comfort food for the soul and makes me feel like a little kid again when I eat it. This is one of those soups that is a guarantee that everyone will eat it and will enjoy it. It is also one of those soups that NEEDS to be homemade from scratch. There are some pretty easy homemade versions out there.  This recipe has been made for me through out my whole life by my mother so of course this is my favorite. It has now become my kids favorite and families favorite.


Kid Friendly 30 Minute Chicken Noodle Soup 

3 Tablespoons olive oil
1 cup carrots, peeled and thinly slice (about 2 carrots)
1 cup celery, thinly sliced (about 2 stalks)
1 medium yellow onion, diced 
2 Tablespoons minced garlic
64 ounces chicken broth
2 bay leaves
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon pepper
12 ounces wide egg noodles
2 cups shredded rotisserie chicken
2 Tablespoons fresh parsley finely chopped
2 Tablespoons lemon juice
2 teaspoons salt

In a large stock pot over medium heat add the olive oil. Then the carrots, celery, and onion. Cook for about 5 minutes until they start to soften. Add the minced garlic and saute for a minute or two. Add the chicken broth and bring to a boil. Add the spices and boil for 5 minutes. Then add the egg noodles and boil for 10 minutes. If you like your soup to have more liquid you can add some water. Then add the chicken, parsley, lemon juice, and salt and boil for 2 minutes. Serve immediately with a buttery roll!
