Recipe of the Week: The Best Chicken Noodle Soup

Before I give you this recipe for the “Best Chicken Noodle Soup Ev-Ah!” from Moms by Heart, I must make a confession…

Being sick as a dog, I wanted to make myself the best soothing recipe I could find. When I stumbled upon this recipe, I fell in love. I had great aspirations to get to work until I took Atlas out on a 15 minute walk, in the Florida humidity, then came back inside and fell asleep for 3 hours…whoops! So my chicken noodle soup that I’m eating out of a red solo cup consists of canned chicken broth with egg noodles…

But how I see it is that I can’t really taste anything right now anyways, so why waste the effort on a delicious pot of the homemade stuff with hand-made noodles (swoon!!!), when I can shortcut it today and make some in the future to freeze for the next time I’m craving Chicken Noodle Soup or get sick! Win, Win, right?!

P.S. I’m totally obsessed with putting Club Multi-grain Minis in my soup…YUM!

So without further ado, here is your recipe of the week…try making it ahead of time so you won’t have to suffer without, like me!
