Creamy Chicken Noodle Soup - Crazy Cooking Challenge

It’s time for another Crazy Cooking Challenge! This month’s theme is Chicken Noodle Soup. It’s so cold here right now and soup is just what we need to get warmed up. I decided to go with a creamy soup because cream soups are my favourite. I adapted this recipe from a wonderful blog called The Yummy Life. It was really delicious! My 4 year old had 2 bowls.

I didn’t have evaporated milk so I just used 2% instead and it worked out perfectly I also added peas because my kids like them.

6-8 servings

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 garlic clove, minced
1 cup diced onions
1 cup diced mushrooms
1 cup diced carrots
1 cup diced celery
1/3 cup all purpose flour
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1 teaspoon poultry seasoning
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon chicken soup base
6 cups no salt added chicken broth
2 cups cooked shredded (or cubed) chicken
1 1/2 cup 2% milk
2 cup uncooked pasta (I used Catelli Smart spaghetti broken up)
1/2 cup frozen peas
2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped

Heat olive oil in a pot over medium high heat.

Cook garlic, onion, mushrooms, carrots, and celery for about 5-7 minutes or until soft.

Sprinkle flour, oregano, pepper, thyme, poultry seasoning, salt  and soup base over the vegetables and cook 1 minute while stirring.

Add broth and bring to a boil then reduce heat and simmer, partially covered, for 10-15 minutes.

Add chicken, milk, and noodles. Continue cooking for 10 minutes or until noodles are tender. Stir in the parsley before serving.
