    I used 3 cups of noodles and added some more broth. I also used canned chicken. I cooked it until the noodles and vegetables were the consistency I wanted. We all thought it was good and everyone went back for seconds.n

  • This is basically chicken noodle soup

    Pretty tasty but I'm just going to make my fave chicken noodle soup. Although I can't deny that the use of frozen veggies made it quicker!

    I stir fried about 1-1/2 chicken breasts (cubed) to come up with the 2 cups cooked chicken. I only had fresh basil on hand, so I used 3x the amount listed for the dried, snipping it into small pieces with scissors. I thought the medium noodles would take too long to cook (the Muellers package says 7-8 min.) so I used Muellers fine egg noodles, which take 3-4 mins. I also added more chicken broth since the noodles seemed to soak it up. This was really good. My husband also liked it, and my child liked it with her usual ketchup.

    I sauteed some fresh minced garlic and 1 small onion in the skillet before Step #1, then proceeded to follow the recipe. These 2 extra ingredients give some extra flavor, and only add 2-3 minutes to the prep time (or you can add garlic and onion powders [not salt] during cooking if you don't have any fresh on hand).
