From My Table To Yours

Chicken noodle soup

Chicken noodle soup

TIP OF THE WEEK: As the cost of eggs escalates weekly, it is best to buy the jumbo eggs. For a few pennies more it is almost like buying 2 dozen eggs for the price of one. If your recipe calls for 2 large eggs, and you have bought the jumbo eggs, you will only need one egg. An added bonus: frequently you will get 2 or 3 double-yoke eggs within one carton of eggs.

As cold weather approaches and my hubby requested a pot of soup to warm him up, I thought nothing speaks love and home like a pot of homemade chicken noodle soup. When we have the sniffles and sneezes with a scratchy throat added, there is nothing like some chicken noodle soup to make us feel a little better. Below is my own version of this warming and healing version of a family favorite. As usual, I use boneless skinless chicken breasts with reduced sodium and fresh ingredients whenever possible.


4 large boneless skinless chicken breasts

3 ribs celery, chopped

1 bag baby carrots, cut in half

1 large onion, chopped

1 large can chicken stock or broth

1 small box chicken stock or broth

1 bag broad egg noodles


Place all ingredients in a large soup pot and bring to a boil. Stir and cover, then reduce heat to a slow simmer. Let cook until your vegetables are tender. Enjoy!!!

Thanks for dropping by to chat with me today. Next week don’t forget your cup o’ your favorite brew, and we will talk about a dish for the holidays.
