Super Easy Chicken Noodle Soup

There's nothing quite like chicken noodle soup, and sometimes circumstances just call for a big, heaping bowl of the good stuff. Add a little brown rice or quinoa to make this into a meal, or just serve it as is with some warm crusty bread.

Ingredients

  • 2 salted butter
  • 1 large onion, chopped finely
  • 1 1/2 salt
  • Two 32-ounce cartons low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 pasta, such as ditalini
  • 10 frozen mixed vegetables, such as peas, carrots, corn, and green beans
  • One 15-ounce can diced tomatoes
  • 6 cooked boneless skinless chicken breasts, chopped
  • 1 grated Parmesan
  • 2 lemon juice
  • 1/4 black pepper
  • 1/4 chopped chives (optional)

Directions

Melt the butter in a large stockpot over medium-low heat. Add the onion and ½ teaspoon of the salt. Cook, stirring often, until the onion is soft and translucent, about 10 minutes.

Add the broth and bring to a boil over high heat. Stir in the pasta, frozen vegetables, and tomatoes. Cook until the pasta is done, about 7 minutes.

Stir in the chicken, Parmesan, lemon juice, remaining salt, pepper, and chives, if using. Cook 1 more minute to heat through, remove from heat, and serve.

Easy Chicken Shopping Tip

Buy whole chickens and ask the butcher to quarter them for you. You will save an average of $5 per pound, or more.

Easy Chicken Cooking Tip

Allow meat to rest for at least ten minutes before slicing into it; otherwise, the juices will leak out.

Easy Chicken Wine Pairing

Pinot noir, gamay, merlot, zinfandel, carménère, pinotage, or grenache with grilled, roasted, or other simply cooked chicken; chardonnay, pinot gris/grigio, pinot blanc, or chenin blanc with chicken in cream or light tomato sauce or with chicken crêpes or croquettes; sauvignon blanc or sémillon with fried chicken; viognier with spiced chicken dishes.
