Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup

Who doesn't love homemade chicken noodle soup? Especially during cold and flu season!! (Or, just to warm you up on a cold, rainy day.) This is a really great recipe...and some serious comfort food.

**You can also make this soup in your slow-cooker (I did!) Combine all of the ingredients in your slow-cooker (except for the noodles) and cook on low heat for 3-4 hours to blend flavors. In the last 20 minutes, add the noodles. Yum!


Ingredients
1 rotisserie chicken or 2 (bone-in) roasted chicken breasts, meat shredded or chopped
EVOO
2 carrots, chopped
2 stalks celery, chopped
1 yellow onion, chopped
48 oz. chicken broth (1-1/2 boxes)
1 tsp. dried thyme
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. black pepper
8 oz. uncooked noodles (I used egg noodles)

Directions
Heat a large, heavy bottom pan over medium heat and drizzle bottom with olive oil. Add chopped celery, onions and carrots. Cook for approximately 6-8 minutes.

Add thyme and cook another 2 minutes. Add salt and pepper. Add chicken broth and bring to a boil. Once the soup is boiling, add noodles and cook according to package directions.  Add the chicken in the last several minutes.
