With cold season in full swing, one of my favorite things to make is homemade chicken noodle soup. There's just something about all the colorful veggies in a steamy broth that makes me smile. For my version of homemade chicken noodle soup, I start with the "Holy Trinity Trio" of onion, celery and carrots. Saute the veggies for a few minutes with a little olive oil.
What makes my chicken noodle fast, is that I use chicken stock/broth instead of water. After working a full day at the market, I don't have time to make my own stock for the soup. Sprinkle the chopped chicken breast pieces with Everglades Seasoning.
Here's where I like to get creative. You can add any kind of pasta for your "noodles" or even rice. This time, I decided to use some Japanese rice noodles I had in my pantry. Add the noodles and cook for a few more minutes.
This is definitively one of those meals were everyone wants more. Cold or not, I enjoy having eating soup anytime of the year.
