With three germy little kids going to germy little schools with other germy little kids, the sniffles and sore throats are running rampant here at my house. Chicken Noodle Soup may not be a miracle cure for the common cold, but there's just something about the flavors and the nice warm soup that just seems to make you feel better after a bowlful.
Usually, when I don't feel good, I'll just pop the lid to some canned chicken noodle soup and heat it up, but when it comes to my kids not feeling well, I try to make them something with a little more nutritional value and some love. This homemade chicken noodle soup has everything you could want in a soup - the hearty veggies, the delicious broth, the roasted chicken... It's the perfect go-to for a quick pot of feel-good yumminess.
