Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup

The combination of being sick and the weather beginning to feel like fall made me want nothing more than comfort food. All week. So this week we've done an entire menu dedicated to our favorite comfort foods. Fatty? Yes. But totally worth it.

Here is the recipe for Chicken Noodle Soup. Griff cooks this one in our house, and it made me feel so much better! I have gotten a nasty cold (part II) after just getting over one. So here it goes:

4 cups chopped, cooked chicken
1 cup chopped celery
1/4 cup chopped carrots
1/4 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup of butter
8 oz. egg noodles
12 cups of water
9 cubes of chicken bouillon
1/2 teaspoon dried marjoram
1/2 teaspoon ground pepper
1 bay leaf
1 tablespoon dried parsley

To Cook:
In a large pot, saute celery and onion in butter. Add chicken carrots, water, bouillon cubes, marjoram, black pepper, bay leaves and parsley. Simmer for 30 minutes. Add the noodles and simmer for 10 more minutes.

It is too lovely! We found this recipe on, but as always we sometimes play with amounts (for example this last time there was more bay leaf!). Guaranteed it's better than ANYTHING you can buy in a can.
