There are two things in life that are certain, everyone gets sick and everyone likes chicken noodle soup. Come to think about it I have never met one person who doesn’t like CNS as we call it in the biz. So with that said it’s about time we all grow up and start making some homemade deliciousness vs. just pouring it out of the can.

Watch the video here! Tips/Hacks & date night thoughts!

This recipe is great as it is pretty simple and quick enough if you are feeling deathly sick with no energy and are debating between using the canned stuff with it ready in 5 minutes vs. putting in a little extra effort for something healthier and better for you.

If you ever in your life want to get some brownie points this is the way… your new love says “i’m sick, can we reschedule, I don’t want you to see me like this.” Friends… this is where you separate yourself from all the terrible people they used to date and you give them ol’ “honey no, if I can’t see you at your worst I don’t deserve you at your best…” *dramatic pause and wink. So next you say, let me bring you over some tea and chicken noodle soup tonight, we can stay in and watch Sleepless in Seattle or The Notebook. Well you’re already rounding 3rd base but it’s time to go from a potential home-run to a grand slam. Go by your local grocery, pick-up a few ingredients and make this easy quick homemade chicken noodle soup recipe that will make you seem like some sort of over considerate, angel perfect super-human of which she will proudly instagram you and maybe you make for your first IG story… who knows… either way love is in the air.

This recipe is huge in flavor, healthy and everything you want in homemade chicken noodle soup for a cold winter night or to help that sick love or family member. Chicken thighs are ideal for this recipe as breasts will dry out but either work. I prefer to cook the noodles separately as well.
