Do I have a fabulous soup for you today. I got this recipe from Chad's mom Gigi (Munchkin nicknamed her Gigi for Grandma, easier to say and so sweet). This is the Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup that my husband grew up on. It is the soup he had every time he was sick and this soup kicked every cold he ever had. There is just something about a chicken noodle soup made with love.
Well I enjoyed this soup many times when Gigi made it, and I naturally assumed that the flavorful soup cooked all day long to taste so good. Much to my surprise all this chicken goodness was achieved with 5 ingredients and in 40 minutes! You heard me right, 5 ingredients (including the water) and 40 minutes.
Thank you Gigi for sharing this amazing recipe!
Enjoy, it really is awesome!!!
With love from our kitchen table to yours! XO

Gigi's Simple Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup
8 cups water
3 tablespoons chicken bouillon granules
1 pound boneless skinless chicken breast, diced ½” cubes
1 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
½ bag wide egg noodles
In a 4 quart pot over medium heat combine water and bouillon, stir to combine.
Add diced uncooked chicken and black pepper.
Cook for 30 minutes (chicken should be white and cooked). At the end of this time you will see a flavor layer at the top of the water, you will be tempted to skim it off... I caution you to leave it there, as the soup continues to cook in this final stage it will make your incredible chicken broth.
Add egg noodles and stir. Turn heat to high, boil for 10 minutes. Serve!
Makes approximately 10 cups – 5 servings
