This classic comfort food always hits the spot when the weather starts to get cold. *NOTE- I sometimes use 3-4 whole carrots sliced and 2 cups frozen peas. Whatever you have on hand will work.

For such a simple soup, this is unexpectedly flavorful!  While preparing it I had a feeling it would be good - as I do enjoy chicken noodle soup most any day of the year - but it turned out to be REALLY good. My entire family snapped it right up. One great thing about this recipe's simplicity is that it lends itself to adaptation. Try adding your own favorite veggies or seasonings, then sit back, relax and enjoy.
