Easy Chicken Noodle Soup

Chicken Noodle SoupEasy Chicken Noodle Soup.  My husband and boys love this soup and it is so easy!  I have caught this spring cold that all the boys have had, so I made ME some soup 🙂  I like my soups “meaty”, almost like a stew.  If you prefer more juice, you will need to add more water or cut back on the egg noodles.


  • 2 TBSP Butter
  • 1 Cup Chopped Onion
  • 1 Cup Chopped  Celery
  • 2 Cups Chopped Carrots
  • 1 bag of Frozen (or 2 Cans) Whole Kernel Corn
  • 8 Cups Chicken Broth

  • 6 cooked chicken breasts (or 3 cans of chunk chicken)
  • 1 tsp Dried Basil
  • 1 tsp Dried Oregano
  • Salt and Pepper to taste*

1.  In a large pot over high heat, melt butter.  Add onions, celery and carrots.  Cook until carrots are tender and onions are translucent.  Approximately 8 minutes.
