Easy 30 minute chicken noodle soup sounds too good to be true, right? What if I said I have the most amazing, best tasting Quick and Easy Chicken Noodle Soup that is fast and easy and ready in 20 minutes.  Would I be your new best friend?

Nothing says love like a warm bowl of Chicken Noodle Soup. No wonder it is claimed to cure ailments, it’s as comforting as a mother’s touch. Soothes the soul and fills the belly! This is the quickest and the easiest soup you’ll find. Keep reading to find out how to make this delicious and satisfying soup in only 20 minutes flat!

This is my children’s most requested soup, not only during the chilly cold months, but all year round!

Lucky for me it’s fast if you use already cooked chicken.   I use homemade chicken broth that I keep frozen.  The flavor is amazing!  If you’ve never had homemade broth, trust me, you really, really are missing out on amazing broth!!  The taste is  unbelievably different!

The thing I love most about fixing anything at home is the customization.  You add what you want, take out what you don’t want.  So please feel free to add celery, more vegetables, different herbs, or take out the carrots.  One thing you’ll never see on this blog is a recipe with celery, unless it’s a typo. I hate, detest, loathe, despise, dislike celery, even the smell of it makes me gag.  I think you get the picture here…. I’m still trying to recall what horrible recipe I ate celery in to make me have such hatred against it.  Wish I had a hatred for french fries, my waist would thank me. 🙂

If you have an amazing recipe that INCLUDES celery, please let me know in the comments and I’ll actually try it.  Yeah, I’m fearless like that (wink)

*This can easily be made gluten free, be careful with broths, a lot contains hidden gluten.  The pasta is usually a given.  I HIGHLY recommend JOVIAL brand noodles.  So delish!!
