Chicken Noodle Soup
This soup is one of my favorite things to make for dinner. I know that may seem boring but it’s just such a cozy soup that I’m always in the mood for.
I love that it’s quick and easy to make, especially when you use rotisserie chicken like I have here and skip making the broth from scratch.
Plus it’s one of those dinners that everyone in the family can agree on. And it’s always a good thing to serve to guests because I can’t think of many people who don’t like it.
It makes the perfect weeknight dinner because you have have it ready in about 30 minutes and it’s filled with healthy ingredients.
