Hearty "Rotisserie" Chicken Noodle Soup


On cold winter days, nothing is better than a warm bowl of a thick and hearty soup.  Chicken noodle always does the trick for me and I thoroughly enjoyed this bowl while my kiddo was taking a nap, which have been seemingly fleeting from his daily schedule.   

Making this soup is seriously quick and simple, especially if you use a rotisserie chicken from your local grocer.  I'll be honest...I buy one of these a few times a month, that's just one of my many secrets (wink, wink). 


 Hearty "Rotisserie" Chicken Noodle
2 tbsp butter, 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil (approx)
1 medium onion, chopped
4 celery stalks, chopped
1.5 c chopped carrots
2 cloves chopped garlic
1/2 tsp dried thyme
1 bay leaf
salt and pepper to taste
White meat from one rotisserie chicken
5 c chicken broth
1 bag frozen egg noodles
1/3 c flour mixed with 1/3 c. milk
1.5 c milk

1. Saute onion, celery and carrots in butter and olive oil until onion is translucent. Add garlic and cook 1 minute longer. 
2. Add spices and chicken, stir and saute 2 minutes.
3. Add broth and noodles.  Bring to a boil, cover and reduce heat to low.  Cook 10-15 minutes until noodles are cooked through. 
3. Add flour/milk mixture; then, add the rest of the milk.  Bring to a boil again, reduce heat and simmer uncovered until soup has thickened.

Enjoy on a cold day while *hopefully* everyone is asleep.
