Sometimes I just don’t have the time to slow cook a chicken for some great homemade soup. But yet when it’s cold outside that’s exactly what I want! We just had 6″ of snow drop on us with more to follow this weekend.
Yaah! some may say…not me! The older I get the less I like winter, but I guess I better grin and bare it because it’s only the beginning!!

So with that being said, here’s my Quickie Roasted Chicken Noodle Soup!!

Warm and comforting just like you simmered it for hours, but in reality, it only it took 20 min’s.

The key ingredient is this roasted chicken, that I threw in the oven along with something else I was making the other day, you know, like 2 meals in one! Seasoned with lots of thyme, salt and pepper and olive oil. Actually, it’s the seasonings that makes the soup tastes so good.

Then I simply just shred all the chicken up and either stick it in my frig, or sometimes even my freezer till needed.

Take out your favorite soup pot and add a little olive oil in there. Next saute your garlic, chopped carrots , celery, and onions until almost tender. Add in some great boxed, low sodium broth like the one from Trader Joes, ( or any of your favorites) and a sprinkling of fresh parsley.

I cook my egg noodles on the side and add them as needed, sometimes they tend to blow up from sitting in the hot broth to long.

And of course, you must top it off with some freshly grated Parm!!

Another quick meal for this busy time of year!!

Buon Appetito!!
