Healthy Recipe For Chicken Noodle Soup

Fast and Easy Dinner: Dilly Chicken Noodle Soup

Whenever I find myself feeling run-down or particularly susceptible to a tenacious Fall cold, there are two things I do: I take my vitamins, and I make my simple recipe for wholesome chicken noodle soup. The minute the smell of aromatics and chicken permeates my kitchen, it's impossible to deny the healing properties of this chicken noodle soup.

Despite its familiar ingredients, this is nothing like the canned or cafeteria stuff; instead, it's chock-full of chunks of real chicken breast, whole pieces of vegetables, al dente egg noodles, and a transparent (but powerful) chicken broth base. But the ingredient that absolutely makes this soup is the dill: it adds a lemony, vegetal flavor that complements the chicken in the best way possible. Get your soup on with the recipe.
