Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup is Good for the Soul

I don’t know about you, but everyone and their dog seems to be sick right now. Pneumonia. Cold. Stomach flu. You name it. Ew. So when I woke up yesterday with a swollen right tonsil, I feared what might be coming. I’ve been drinking plenty of water and tea with lemon and honey, but nothing gets the job done quite like some homemade chicken noodle soup. The saltiness of the broth and the yummy veggies, chicken and noodles — mmm. Might be enough to make me feel like new again. Even better, it’s easy peasy to make and freezes like a charm if you want to make a large batch and have it on hand. I love freezing it in cubes and then bringing it to work on a cold day.

Homemade chicken noodle soup recipe

Chicken Noodle Soup

1 tablespoon butter
1/2 an onion, chopped
8 cups chicken broth
1-1 1/2 cups cooked chicken, sliced/shredded 
1 1/2 cups noodles (I really like these fusili noodles, but you can also use egg noodles)
1 cup carrots, sliced
1 cup chopped celery
1 teaspoon rosemary
1 teaspoon oregano
1/2 teaspoon celery salt
1/2 teaspoon savory spice 
salt and pepper to taste

Melt butter in a pot over medium heat and cook onion and celery until tender. Add chicken broth, chicken, carrots, noodles and spices. Boil then reduce to a simmer for about 20 minutes.
