It’s flu season! I have been sick all week and searching for anyway to make myself feel better and soothe my throat, so I threw together a quick chicken noodle soup with whatever I had on hand. I must say, it was the best chicken noodle soup I have ever had! You HAVE to give this one a try and let us know how it turned out. It’s the perfect soup for the winter time or to make you feel a little better when you are under the weather.
In my soup I used rice instead of noodles and ate it with crackers. It reminded me of when I was little and my mom would make me chicken noodle soup with crackers when I was sick.
