Easy Chicken Noodle Soup

Brrrr, it's freaking cold outside.  This weekend while my dear husband was off having fun at the football game, I took care of a sick baby (just a cold).  I decided to get a head start on the cold that will likely hit me next by making some chicken noodle soup.


On Saturday night we ate a rotisserie chicken from Costco (only $5 for a huge bird!) and half of it was leftover.  Soup is the perfect way to use it all up.

This soup is so easy, I was able to make it while Jackson took his morning nap!  That's right, 20 minutes.

First I cut up some prewashed carrots, celery and parsley.  I put some olive oil in a big pot and sauteed the veggies until semi-cooked.  I pulled the rest of the chicken away from the bone and added the it to the pot along with 1.5 cups of no-yolk spiral noodles.

I added 3 cups of chicken stock (low-sodium is best) and stirred.  Cook and stir occassionaly for 30 minutes and it's done.  Shake in a little salt n' peppa and you are done.  It yields about 6 servings.

It was so yummy for yesterday's lunch.  I gobbled it up.  I even have enough for dinner tonight.  I can't wait to dig in again.  And, it's low-fat.  Can't beat it for comfort food.
