Homeade Chicken Soup

I finally nailed it! The best pot of chicken soup ever! Yeah....

Here are the ingredients:

Cooked chicken
chopped carrots
crushed red pepper
chicken bouillon cube
can of chicken broth
can of cream of chicken soup
egg noodles
dash of turmeric
chicken stock if available (can use broth from boiling chicken or juice from baked chicken with fat skimmed off)

In a large pot put chicken stock, chicken bouillon cube and about 1 cup of water. Add chopped onion, celery, carrots and garlic and simmer until vegetables begin to get tender. Add chicken, cream of chicken soup, egg noodles and crushed red pepper and cook until noodles are done. Add turmeric to add color and a dash of parsley to garnish.

Make a large pot of this soup and freeze in individual portions. This is a great comfort food for cold weather and helpful for those suffering from colds or sickness.
