Cheater Chicken Noodle Soup

This magic soup will cure any illness* and is perfect for chilly Football days or movie nights at home.

*it won’t but it will make you feel better!

What You Need:

  • a rotissere chicken from your local deli or market
  • a bag of egg noodles
  • a couple cans of chicken noodle soup or a large container of broth from your local deli or market, with most of the noodles and chicken strained- we’re looking for the liquid.
  • a quarter stick of butter
  • salt and pepper
  • crackers or bread
  • a pot with either a top or a strainer
  • a bowl
  • a fork
  • a ladle or big spoon
  • lots o love!

Step by Step (ooo baby):

  • set out all your stuff
  • fill the pot a little over half way with water and turn the heat on high , add a dash of salt
  • while you’re waiting for it to boil, take your fork and shred the breast meat off of the chicken into decent sized chunks
  • now your water is boiling? cool- time to add the noodles- I use about half the bag. Oh and maybe turn down the heat so the water doesn’t boil over.
  • stir the noodles about every min for around 7 mins or until they are soft but not mushy
  • strain the water out of the pot with your lid or dump the noodles in the strainer and shake it a few times
  • turn your heat to low and add the noodles back in- with a big chunk of the butter and stir till the butter coats the noodles
  • add the broth and chicken and stir over low heat until it’s all warm.
  • serve with crackers and accept praise!
  • MOST IMPORTANT STEP: while they slurp it down- shred or take the rest of the chicken off and store it in tupperware or on a plate with foil in the fridge. then throw away the chicken box and the deli soup container/cans, wrap up and store the noodles.

It’s our little secret, right??



Swap chicken for tofu or chickn’, and use veggie broth in place of chicken. Throw in some cooked carrots to add more substance if you like.
