Chicken Mushroom Noodle Soup


This is a soul warming soup. The kind of soup that you will want to keep around and curl up with a great book.  I’ve been fighting a cold for a week and this soup was the perfect prescription.

It’s easy and comes together in less than 30 minutes.  This is the kind of soup that is great for these cold winter days. The kind of soup that you don’t have to think too much about, because you can use leftover chicken, frozen veggies, and pre-made stock. It takes longer to throw a pair of wool socks on than it does to make this soup…well not really, but you get the point. So lay back and relax.
