1 small onion chopped


2 tablespoons of fresh chopped parsley or 1 tablespoon dried

Skip if keeping it low calorie


Let simmer for 12-15 minutes


Turn heat to medium-high and add 2 cups of your favorite egg noodles

Cook for 8-10 minutes or till noodles begin to tender


Add the cooked chicken and simmer for 8-10 minutes longer
(Remember the chicken is already cooked you just need to heat it through and let flavor up)


If using other chicken such as rotisserie the same applies

Tip: If using fresh chicken (do this first) chop 4 chicken breasts into bit size pieces and cook in medium size skillet in 3-4 tablespoons olive oil till done, 12-15 minutes, salt and pepper while cooking. Drain on a paper towel and add to soup in step 3

Serve with some fresh baked bread and a side salad or

White Cheddar Cheese slices and whole grain crackers are great with this soup!

This is my daughters favorite soup…she has often mentioned when she calls (now that she is all grown up) how much she would appreciate a bowl of my chicken noodle soup! Remembering how good it was to sit down at the supper table and ENJOY!
