Chunky Chicken Noodle Soup Recipe
I made this Chunky Chicken Soup Recipe tonight. Even though it is almost summer here and the temperatures are soaring, my granddaughter requested chicken soup for dinner. Of course we have the air conditioner on so the temperature in the house is comfortable enough to eat soup for dinner. It would also be a nice cold weather meal. My granddaughter and her mother have a cold, so I thought this would be a good choice for dinner in spite of the temperatures.
1 tbsp. oil
1 onion, chopped
5 or 6 boneless skinless chicken breasts, chopped
1 can chicken broth
2 cans cream of chicken soup
6 soup cans of water
2-3 cups pasta noodles
Saute onion in the oil. Add chicken and cook until white throughout. My chicken breasts were frozen so I chopped them after cooking them a while. Add chicken broth, soup, and water. Heat to boiling. Add pasta, return to boil. Continue cooking for 10-20 minutes. I like to cook it until the noodles are well done. Serve in cups or soup bowls.
**To add additional nutrition to the recipe you could add celery, carrots, and frozen green peas. I'd add the celery and carrots while sauteing the onions and add the peas when you add the pasta.
PS. If you have other ideas of things we could add to beef up the nutritional value of this soup please feel free to share them. Let me know if you try this recipe and how you like it.
