All over my Facebook feed, there's someone posting about a stomach bug hitting their house. Unfortunately, as I type this, my family is in the same boat. My oldest and youngest daughters are sick. What better way to help someone who's sick the day after Christmas, than with a bowl of quick and easy chicken noodle soup, that's ready in 30 minutes.
How To Make A Quick And Easy Chicken Noodle Soup In 30 Minutes
With five kids, time is of the essence. And when you're busy taking care of one or two kids who are under the weather, remembering to defrost meat is not on your radar. This is when leftover chicken or better yet, a quick and easy $5 rotisserie chicken from your local supermarket comes in.
Rotisserie chicken has been the saving grace of dinners many, many times. Chicken salad anyone? You can even make chicken tacos or taquitos (like my pork taquito recipe) with a side of Spanish rice on Taco Tuesday.
Do you have memories of chicken noodle soup growing up? My mother would always make sopa de pollo, but hers naturally has Latin flavors, I will share that recipe one day soon.
This recipe is made with chopped carrots, celery, and egg noodles. I swear that the egg noodles make this dish. So much comfort in one bite!
I also like to make this with a mixture of water and chicken stock. I buy reduced sodium chicken broth. Chicken broth is rich in minerals and is easily digestible, especially for those tummies that are fighting extra hard come flu season.

You can definitely omit the water and just use stock or broth, but I'm frugal and on a tight budget, water for the win!
Hopefully, my daughters will devour this -slowly. My phone is dead, if not, I would have shot a few photos of them. Banana looks so peaceful beside me as she's sleeping under a heavy white comforter, with her hot pink with silver glitter painted little nails.
Mi gente, I hope your house is stomach bug-free this winter and that you're enjoying lots of pernil and coquito. I have to go run and heat some quick and easy chicken noodle soup up for my kiddos. I hope your Noche Buena and Christmas was amazing. As always, buen provecho, subscrice and share!
