There's Nothing Better than Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup

What's worse than having all four of my kids sick at the same time?

Having my husband sick.

Don't get me wrong, I love him to death but when he is sick he is the biggest baby in the world. Well, in case you haven't guessed it yet, he's sick. He has a cold and a sore throat, and last night he wanted soup for supper. So we moved around our menu for the week and had homemade chicken noodle soup.


Here's my recipe


8 cups water
3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts cut into cubes
3 carrots, peeled and diced
2 celery ribs, diced (missing from the picture above because I didn't have any)
3 cubes of chicken bouillon ****see below****
1 bag of egg noodles

Mix all ingredients except the egg noodles into a stock pan. Bring to a boil and then reduce to medium-low heat to simmer. I like to allow the soup to simmer for about an hour, but it is not necessary, I didn't last night. About ten minutes before you are ready to serve add in the bag of egg noodles.

****Note about chicken bouillon****

I wanted to share the type of chicken bouillon that I use. It is Maggi brand it is absolutely my favorite, it has the best taste of any that I have tried. It can be kind of hard to find, and I can only find it at Meijers and one Kroger so I added a picture so that you can see what the box looks likes.
