This is the best soup at anytime of the year. Nothing better than a good old fashioned big bowl of chicken noodle soup. Cures what ails you!!!
This is an easy recipe using the carcass of a pre roasted chicken from the store. I like to cook it in chicken broth, you won’t believe how much flavor you get!!! You can have this soup on the table in no time and it looks like you slaved all day!!! Save the other half of the chicken for sandwiches. I used butternut squash instead of carrots and it gave such a nice flavor. Everyone raved over this soup. Enjoy!!
