Quick and easy chicken noodle soup that is perfect for a mama with a sick baby (or husband). Hearty enough for a full meal.
Boil chicken on medium or medium low with chicken broth, butter and all seasonings until done. Remove chicken from broth and pull with forks or chop finely. Set aside.
Add flour to ice water and whisk until combined. Add to broth and whisk.
Return chicken to broth along with carrots and pasta. Cook until pasta is done and carrots are warm. (If you used fresh carrots you will want to give them a few minutes before you add the pasta.)
Serve to sick babies and hear them say, “Now I feel all better, Mommy.”
Notes: I used rotini because it is what I had on hand. It turned out great and was very filling. I might try fettuccini next time.
You may want to adjust seasonings to get a more robust flavor. I specifically made this simple for my sick little 3-year-old girl.
I serve this with my cornbread muffins (see my recipe box).
These chicken noodle bowls are loosely based on Pho, a dish my husband and I have been fortunate enough to enjoy at our friends’ house. They do a traditional Vietnamese recipe with beef. The dish has a flavorful beef broth, topped with fresh aromatics and vegetables.
I decided to make this version for my husband who has been sick all weekend with a terrible cold. The ginger root provides a homeopathic element to the broth.
