Rotisserie Chicken Noodle Soup

It's cold and flu season.
And nothings better for a sniffle than homemade chicken noodle soup.
I make mine the easy way ~ with a rotisserie chicken from the store.
I know what you are thinking... "But Kim, you grow your own meat."  Yes, we do but not meat chickens (yet).  And the cooked ones are so easy!  Don't be dissapointed with me.  They make great soup!


 
Rotisserie Chicken Noodle Soup
1 Rotisserie Chicken from store (I buy mine at Sam's because they're bigger.  You know, 3 boys!)
a handful each of:
chopped onion
diced celery including some leaves
sliced carrots
9 chicken boullion cubes or 3 T boullion granules
1 t. pepper
1 large package of extra wide noodles

Fill a large pot 3/4 full of water (about 16 cups).  Add rotisserie chicken whole.  Put all those drippings in too.  Add vegetables and seasoning to pot (everything except the noodles).  Bring to a gentle boil and simmer for 30 minutes.  Turn off heat.  Remove chicken to cool.  Careful, sometimes the chicken falls apart!  When it's cool enough to handle, debone chicken, cut into small pieces and add back to pot.  Bring soup to a boil and cook noodles according to package directions.  Add extra seasoning s&p if needed.  Serve with saltines.
**Use this recipe to make Chicken and Rice too.  Just add 4 cups rice instead of noodles.**

Grab your spoon ~ Soup's on!

  4. This is my recipe too! My kids LOVE it. But I don't put my chicken in whole... I cut it up and add the pieces. I will have to try it your way and see what the difference is.
