I was sicker'n a dog, working late, hungry, tired. . . What to make? This is my favorite chicken noodle soup, and, even tired, sick, hungry, and after dinner time, I still took the hour (plus) to make this recipe because it was just what I needed. Delicious, hot, comforting.
Cook first 4 ingredients in hot oil in a Dutch oven 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Add chicken broth and next 3 ingredients. Bring to a boil; reduce heat, and simmer, partially covered, 25 minutes or until potato is tender.
Add chicken, evaporated milk, and noodles; cook 10 minutes or until noodles are tender. Sprinkle with freshly ground pepper, if desired.
