Quick & Easy Chicken Soup

     I have been reading Joanne Fluke novels for several years. They are light, fun mysteries that are food related. The recipes are always included in the books and I was anxious to try this very simple chicken soup recipe from the latest book, Devil's Food Cake Murder. 
     I made my own chicken broth with two large chicken breasts boiled in water with salt, pepper and a couple of bay leaves. You could certainly buy the broth and use a rotissere chicken for the meat. This made a thick, creamy soup that we both really enjoyed. The second day, it thickened and needed a bit of water/broth to "turn it back into soup".

8 cups chicken broth (you may want a little more to thin down the soup)
3 cups cubed cooked chicken
6 1/2 cups uncooked egg noodles
2 cans cream of chicken soup
1 cup sour cream
black pepper

Boil broth and add noodles, cook until tender. Add two cans of soup to the broth. Stir in the chicken and sour cream (I added a little extra broth to thin the soup a little). Sprinkle with pepper if desired. Enjoy!

I need this today. It looks like the perfect comfort food, and I could sure use some!

I need a bowl of that about now - just came inside. It is about the same as I make chicken or turkey noodle soup, but without the sour cream. May have to try that.
Have a great weekend.

What a perfect soup for this chilly day!

That sounds really good and easy!! I think I will make you think some carrots added would be good?

Hi Sue! Newly following from Foodie Friday! Nice to meet you!

You gotta love a warm, creamy comforting soup! This one looks delish and super easy for a weeknight supper. Especially if you use the store-bought rotisserie chicken. (which I usually do - I'm so lazy! LOL)

Thanks so much for sharing!

Chicken soup would hit the spot right now!

Something about you getting a recipe from a food-themed mystery novel is unspeakably adorable to me. That being said, that soup looks tasty.

This looks really good! I've been thinking a lot about soup lately with the weather getting cooler and might have to try this one! I'd never heard of those books before; sounds interesting.

Jenny said...

This looks delicious and comforting. Yummy!

Oh, this is right up my alley. Sounds really, really good. Thanks for sharing. I have read some of her books too and have tried some cookie recipes.
I just noticed a soup recipe meme going on at the Jolly Bee Blog. You might want to link up!

Thanks for the comment on the blog. I don't understand why my comment button does not show up. It does on my computer, but I've checked other buttons, and it does not. I guess the intense debate has overridden the system.

This recipe looks good.
