Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup

Dinner tonight was another success! I’m usually never sure how it’s going to turn out, so I’m excited when I have another cooking success to put under my belt. I started off by following a chicken barley soup recipe, but when I went to put the barley in…I was out. This is pretty much typical of my cooking life (not having the right ingredients or messing things up), but fortunately I did have some multi-grain soup noodles on hand. Voila!

I love one-dish meals since they’re a great way to package vegetables when I’m tired of salads. One-dish meals are generally simple to put together as well. I break out my crockpot at least once a week!

I tweaked the recipe a little. I never use the full amount of stock that a recipe calls for, because it’s an incredible amount of sodium. I ended up doing four cups of chicken broth and two cups of water, but I think I could easily have done three cups of each.

What are your favorite one-dish meals?

  1. Oh, wow! A Thai soup sounds amazing! There was a particular Vietnamese restaurant in downtown Orlando that I tried to go to as often as possible for their soup. Incredible! If we ever make it to Orlando together, we have to go!
