Mom's Chicken Noodle Soup
8 C. water
8 chicken bouillon cubes
1 can Cream of Chicken soup
add any vegetables that you would like, add more or less depending on your preference
1\2 onion, diced
2-3 potatoes, diced
3 celery stalks, diced
1\2 bag baby carrots, sliced thinly
2 C. cooked, cubed chicken
salt and pepper
1 bag egg noodles
Bring water to a boil, add bouillon cubes. Add the can of Cream of Chicken soup and dissolve in boiling water, stirring often.
Keep stove top on medium-high
Add vegetables, stir together
Add chicken, stir together
Season with the above seasonings. I usually add a couple of teaspoons of each.
Reduce to a simmer for a half an hour
When you are almost ready to serve, bring back to a boil and add bag of noodles until cooked. Let sit for about 5 minuets to let it thicken up. If it is too thick, you can add a little bit of chicken broth to it.
This makes a lot of soup! It is very hearty, and it is perfect for a cold evening. I love all the flavors, too! I always make the whole recipe because I like to freeze the rest. It will freeze well for about a month.
