Chicken Noodle Soup with Mushrooms and Celery

This fantastic recipe was designed with those chilly winter days in mind, days when nothing sounds more appealing than a hot bath followed by curling up on the couch with a soft blanket and watching the TV, but then if that is the mood you are in, you will also be craving a warming meal to satisfy your hunger and help warm you from the inside out.

Chicken noodle soup is a typical feel-good dish which we all know and love. The combination of chicken, noodles and vegetables offers a hug in a mug (or bowl) and is sure to appeal to all the family from the youngest to the most senior. The following recipe boasts a tasty combination of chicken broth and chopped chicken, egg noodles or pasta as you prefer, and then you have the vegetables of course. We like to use carrots, celery, onions and mushrooms, but feel free to swap these for others if you want.

One of the best things about making your own chicken noodle soup recipes is the fact you can use up any leftover vegetables in the refrigerator, throw in some chopped cooked turkey or ham, change the egg noodles for another type of noodles or pasta, or add any other flavors you want to make it exactly how you want it. Some chopped parsley and some salt and pepper are the only seasonings you will really need here, although if you wish to add garlic that might be nice, especially if you are suffering from a cold or the flu, since garlic can help fight off infections and strengthen the body. This easy chicken soup with egg noodles is sure to impress you with its simple yet perfectly balanced flavor.
