Recipe ~ Chicken Soup

 017c copy

 ‘Tis the season for colds which means it’s also homemade chicken soup season 🙂 My husband makes the BEST chicken soup EVER! I always say it’s because it’s made with love, but I’ll let you in on a little secret; he HATES making it lol. He says it’s made out of spite . . . not spice. Since I’m battling my first cold of the new year, I figure this would be the perfect time for me to make it for myself.

Let’s get started!


1 Tbl. butter

1/2 onion, chopped

1/2 cup chopped celery

4 – 14.5 oz cans of chicken broth

2 chicken breasts (cut in bite size pieces)

1 cup of sliced carrots

1/2 tsp. oregano

1/2 tsp. basil

8 oz. egg noodles

Salt & Pepper to taste


In a large pot simmer butter, onion, and celery for 5 minutes. Add chicken broth, chicken, carrots, basil, oregano, salt and pepper. Cook for 20 minutes. Bring noodles to a boil in a separate pot. Add cooked noodles to the broth and chicken, etc., and serve.

This is our go-to recipe for this time of year. I hope you enjoy it! It sure makes me feel better when I’m under the weather.

Until next time.

Much love,

    I have always wanted to make chicken noodle soup. Your recipe seems easy enough to try it out! So awesome that your husband makes it for you.


    • It really is especially if you get everything ready to go before you start cooking. I think he secretly does like making it lol he just teases me and makes me think he doesn’t. Hope you like it!!
