I love a bowl of hot Chicken Noodle Soup! This soup is a classic filled with lots of chicken, vegetables and egg noodles. Plus, it’s even better the next day!
How to make Chicken Noodle Soup
Start by melting the butter in a large pot over medium heat. Add the vegetables and let them cook for a few minutes, until they begin to soften.
Next, add the broth, bay leaves and season lightly with salt and pepper. At this point, you have two options. You can bring it to a boil and continue to the next step and add the noodles or you can let it simmer for 30 minutes. When I have the time I like to let it simmer to get more flavor from the vegetables into the broth.
If you let the broth simmer on low, raise the heat and bring it to a boil. Add your noodles and cooked chicken. Let cook about 6 minutes or until noodles are tender and chicken is warmed through. Taste and add more salt and pepper if needed. Serve and enjoy!
