  1. I love egg noodle soup! Nice to know we have the same recipe in common. Hmm, I’m looking at your list to see if there is anything you add that I don’t… oh, I don’t put oregano and use actual broth but other than that looks the same. A good recipe indeed 🙂

  2. This looks so much better than canned chicken noodle soup. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Seems pretty simple! And who doesn’t love chicken soup this time of year?! I need to post my simple and pretty cheap minestrone soup recipe. Also very yummy!

  4. That looks good mate. It’s so easy to make soups with the cubes which we use. We also keep all the peelings from our veg and put it in a ziploc bag then boil them to make a vegetable stock then add in the chicken cubes. Mr.CBB

    • Andy says:

      You certainly find ways to utilize everything! We’ve never used the peelings or scraps such as that, but it’s a great idea!

  5. CF says:

    I love chicken noodle – I usually add some parsley to my soup broth as well and instead of boullion, I boil chicken bones and season with salt and a bit of sugar. If you buy whole chickens or breasts with the bones still attached, this is a great way to put the bones to use.

    Have you tried making your own egg noodles? I’ve had a recipe I’ve been meaning to try and post about, but haven’t had the chance yet.

    • Andy says:

      We haven’t tried making our own noodles; we’ve never made any pasta from scratch for that matter. It’ll be something we look at eventually, but I’m all about saving time while eating healthy and cheap. 🙂

  6. ThatGuyKC says:

    Sounds delicious. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

  7. Mackenzie says:

    Looks good! Since we are incorporating chicken back into our eating, this is a good way to jump back in.

  8. I bet this would work great with leftover turkey!

  9. Looks awesome again Andy. We do soups a lot this time of year. We like making it and then freezing the leftovers so we can pull it out whenever we want.

    • Andy says:

      That’s the best part about winter food for us; we cook a lot of soups and chili and freeze it. Our freezer gets pretty packed though…I’m eventually going to need to buy a deep freezer.

  10. Yummy. I love me a great soup!

  11. Michelle says:

    This looks very yummy! I’m always looking for a new soup recipe to try.

  12. It looks very tasty!

    I”m not normally a big soup eater as I tend to always be hungry after eating soup. Yours looks to have a good mix of actual solid food so hopefully it will fill me 🙂

    • Andy says:

      LOL. I get hungry as well that’s why adding a side of bread is a good idea! Eating in a bread bowl would be even better and then eating the bowl after!
