Day 2, Chicken Noodle Soup

With the cold weather today, it's a soup kind of a day. I made this from scratch and only used one pot. I love not having too much to clean up afterward.

Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup

1 tbsp olive oil

1 pound boneless skinless chicken breast, cut into bite size pieces

1 cup carrots, cut into bite sized pieces

1 medium onion, chopped

fresh ground pepper

tsp garlic

5 cups chicken stock- I used Emeril's Chicken Stock

1/2 tsp dried oregano

1 cup noodles- I used Barilla Whole Grain Shells

Heat oil. Add chicken and brown. Add fresh ground pepper over cooking chicken. Add onions and carrots. Cook until onions are translucent. Add garlic just before adding chicken stock. Bring mixture to a boil. Boil until carrots are starting to become tender. Add noodles and cook until noodles are done.

Serves 8 - 10

You can serve this with saltines or any cracker you like. Add celery for extra flavor. You can use pre-cooked chicken or turkey if you have some left over.

Flavor rating: Great, I really enjoyed it.

Ease of Preparation: Average. I didn't measure exactly, so your soup may come out slightly different from mine.
