I finally had to come clean with my dirty little secret — my “homemade” soup was kinda sorta semi-homemade.
When my daughter made dinner for us the other night, I told her how to make this soup — over the phone, in two minutes. And that’s about how long it took to toss it together.
If you need a quickie idea for tonight’s dinner, this is it.
My kids used to tell their friends to come over on a night I was serving “homemade chicken noodle soup.” Everyone raved about this soup, while I giggled myself silly. They envisioned me slaving over a steamy pot all afternoon, but I knew my dirty little secret. This truly is a plop-plop-gee-whiz recipe.
And here’s how it goes:
- Add broth, water and cut-up rotisserie chicken to a large pot.
- Season to taste and bring to a boil.
- Add noodles and cook until noodles are done.
I even cleaned up the kitchen counter, emptied the dishwasher, and started a load of laundry between those steps last night.
I occasionally add frozen corn or other vegetables (broccoli, beans) to this soup to change it up a bit. You can also use a variety of pasta (wheat, veggie), barley, or rice instead of the egg-white noodles I list on the recipe. And the best part is that the leftovers are just as inhalable the next day. Mmmm.
This is my ultimate Wing-It Wednesday quickie dinner idea to get you through your hump-day chaos. It’s an uber-easy yum. Try it — you’ll love it too.
