As a kid, a sick day meant watching the Price is Right and a mug full of piping hot Lipton’s Noodle Soup with extra noodles. That magical, cold-fighting elixir paired with buttered saltines never failed to help soothe a sore throat or break up an unrelenting cough. While I still keep my ol’ faithful Lipton’s in the pantry – when my husband is sick, I like to take things up a notch and make a batch of homemade chicken noodle soup.
I keep things simple and use a store-bought rotisserie chicken to save both time and sanity. The soup comes together quick and pairs perfectly with a grilled cheese and/or buttered saltines. The egg noodles will absorb the broth, so if your soup is too thick – simply add more liquid (broth, stock or even water).
