Sometimes the only thing you need is a good hot bowl of chicken noodle soup. It might be to cure the common cold, or because you just need something to warm up with on a cold winter day. And if you do it right, that chicken noodle soup recipe could take a long time to cook.
So that’s why I love this recipe because it’s so fast to make. You can cheat by using a rotisserie chicken and pre-chopped veggies to save a ton of time on the prep side. All the other ingredients are just dumped in and heated up. Still tastes pretty yummy too so it’s a win win.
The whole thing only takes 25 minutes! Give this one a shot.
