Chunky Chicken Noodle Soup

Donna Brown


This is a really good comfort food. I like to make my own chicken noodle soup so I can can control the fat and sodium content. If you have leftover chicken, this is a delicious way to use it up. Also, use extra chicken pieces to make your own chicken broth.
