Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup

SO. SIMPLE. It practically makes itself :) And need I mention it's WAY better than any canned soup you've EVER HAD!?!

I throw 2 chicken breasts in a crock pot and make shredded chicken to add to this soup. If you have leftover chicken, a rotisserie chicken, or even if you want to bake some and chop it- any of those options would work fine.

2 quarts chicken broth
1.5 cups chicken (I prefer shredded)
2 celery stalks, chopped
3 carrots, chopped
1 onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 tsp dried thyme
8 oz noodles (I use brown rice noodles)
1 TBSP fresh parsley, chopped
** a handful of fresh spinach for some extra greens :)

So, in your large soup pot, drizzle some Grape Seed Oil, garlic, and your celery, carrots, onion, thyme and S & P and let it saute for 5 minutes. Then add your chicken broth and uncooked noodles and let them cook for 5 minutes. Lastly, add your cooked chicken and parsley (and spinach if you want) and let it simmer for another 5- 10, by then your noodles should be fully cooked (use them as your guide to when the soup is done!) Then, it's ready to serve and it's umm, umm, UMM GOOD!
