Small pot (pasta)

Large pot (soup)

  • 1 TBSP olive oil
  • ½ cup chopped onion
  • ½ cup chopped celery
  • 9 cups low-sodium chicken broth
  • ½ pound cooked chicken breast, shredded
  • 1 ½ cups noodles
  • 1 cup sliced carrots
  • Juice from half a lemon
  • Salt and black pepper, to taste
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped

Use rotisserie chicken instead of cooked chicken breasts, or water and bouillon cubes instead of broth. Egg noodles are the traditional choice for chicken noodle soup but any type of noodle or rice works. You can add your favorite spices and seasonings like garlic, rosemary, and thyme.
