My mother used to make this chicken noodle soup, and I *hated* it when I was a kid. I mean, seriously, why all the veggies? The canned soup didn’t have that.
Now that she is gone, I make this in remembrance of her and the bonus? Annoying my kids with the tasty chunks of whole veggies! Nourishing bone broth, garden fresh veggies, and homemade noodles make this a treat anytime!
This chicken noodle soup can be made ahead of time, and reheated. It can also be made in the crockpot, simmering on low 6-8 hours while you are at work. Just cook the noodles when you are ready to eat and serve!
The best part of this soup is that it is filling, yet light. When you make it with homemade bone broth, you are adding in vital minerals to your food. Make it with homemade pasta and you have a very nourishing meal that YOU control the ingredients in!
