Quick and Dirty Chicken Noodle Soup

Quick and dirty Chicken Noodle Soup.jpg

Soups are pretty much my jam. They’re easy to batch cook, full of variety and nutrient density, and oh so comforting.

I’ve been traveling in the Pacific North West the last few days, and when I get back to North Texas it will be even COLDER than it is in Oregon — NOT looking forward to that! So after a long day of traveling and being cold, this is on the menu. It’s quick, imperfect, delicious and will hopefully help kick the sinus infection I’m dealing with right in the tail!

Oh and another way to save even more time...grab a precooked pasture raised chicken from a place like Sprouts or Natural Grocers. All you have to do is shred it! That’s my plan for tonight!
