Chicken noodle soup is timeless comfort food. In the winter, as the days shorten and the nights go deep, we reach for that warm broth and delicious simple flavor that cures our hunger and fatigue.

Making your own chicken soup can cut down much of the sodium you would get from store-bought cans. Add some vegetables and this tasty dish will love you back as much as you will love it.
