My husband is a bit under the weather with a cold,& when he is sick, He loves to have my HOMEMADE CHICKEN NOODLE SOUP. This is what I made for dinner today. I love to add lots of chopped Celery, onions, & carrots but today I used FROZEN mixed vegetables & FROZEN PEAS, WITH LOTS OF WHITE MEAT CHICKEN & 6 PIECES OF DARK MEAT AS WELL. I kept the chunks large so it would be very hearty. My husband had 2 LARGE BOWLS LIKE THE ONE IN THE PICTURE. He loves it with Bread & butter. Said he could smell it cooking before he got in the house. Enjoy ANYTIME, NO NEED TO BE SICK TO ENJOY THIS SOUP
