A Quick Chicken Noodle Soup Recipe for Flu Season

When someone has the flu at home, you don't have time to cook.  Why not try this quick chicken noodle recipe from Cooking Light.  Buy a roasted chicken from your local grocery or deli and shred the meat into the broth. It is quick but healthy at the same time. I added thyme to my soup and didn't add parsley. I think thyme along with the other ingredients, is the reason why chicken soup is great for colds and the flu.  What do you add to your chicken and noodle soup?

  1. I never thought about buying a roasted chicken to cut down on the time on making my soup. I also use thyme in my soup and I add corn also. Thanks for the tip.

    1. Hi Stephanie, I'm glad you are better. Sometimes, you just need Campbell soup but the one made from scratch taste much better.
