Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup

Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup is such a traditional comfort food especially when you are sick. This recipe is an old one but so good with carrots, onions, celery and delicious egg noodles.

Chicken Noodle

While Idaho is having a very mild winter, a good part of the nation is being slammed by winter. As I type, this many cities are hunkered down while snow and sleet come down. This Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup would be a great thing to have cooking on the stove and you try to stay warm. It warms me to just think about how comforting it is.

This recipe was given to my by a friend. It was her mother’s. Making it a vintage. And will be a great addition to my vintage recipe series.
