The Best Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup

 

Nothing tastes better than homemade. 

The Best Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup --

 

 

We made it through winter, but unfortunately cold and flu season is still among us. One of my secret weapons during this sick season is homemade chicken noodle soup. My dear friend Beth posted about this soup a while back, and I decided to give it a try myself. 

 

I am so glad that I did. Shortly after making my first batch, I came down with a killer cold. And let me tell you, nothing makes you feel better than a warm bowl of homemade soup.

 

I believe secret ingredient for any homemade soup is homemade broth. Check out this post, where I show you the easy steps on how to make your own broth!

  1. Agreed! I can even stand the smell of canned chicken noodle soup let alone the taste, ick! Not to mention all the sodium! This is my fav meal whenever I’m sick, I add lots of fresh herbs ;)

  2. I made this for dinner tonight. It turned out amazing! I used Corey’s chicken broth recipe, and the flavors were so rich!

  3. This recipe is amazing!! I doubled it, (I have a large family).. everyone was so satisfied. My all time favorite chicken soup recipe. Thanks Corey !!

  4. Used Corey’s crock pot chicken recipe and am now making the broth so I can make some soup. Very satisfied thus far; can’t wait for dinner tomorrow!
