When cold weather comes there’s only one thing I want to make for dinner… soup! I seem to hardly ever make pot roasts, soups, and stews in the summer but when I start feeling a chill in the air, it’s what I crave.

This homemade chicken noodle soup is one of my family’s favorites. We always bring it out when someone starts feeling a bit under the weather because everyone knows chicken soup makes you feel better!

I never knew how easy it was to make homemade chicken noodle soup until a family friend shared her recipe with me. Once you try it, you’ll never buy canned chicken noodle soup again!

Chicken Noodle Soup Veggies

With a mix of fresh chopped vegetables, farm-raised chicken, and aromatic herbs, you’ll have a pot of delicious soup that your family will be begging to eat before it’s finished cooking.

I love to make this soup in my dutch oven as it makes a lot. I usually end up freezing about half of it for a quick weeknight meal a few weeks later.
