Turning to a familiar friend: chicken soup

When people are down or in need, there’s an urge to help in whatever way you can. And often that means food.

We’ve had the occasion recently to provide meals to friends, and there is usually one recipe I turn to: chicken soup. In difficult times, nothing is more comforting than soup, especially chicken noodle. It warms and soothes from the inside out.

Even though the prime time for cold and flu season is past, this soup is a go-to dish for all of winter.

Who doesn’t need some extra comfort to see us through to spring?

Comforting Chicken Noodle Soup


2 quarts water

8 teaspoons chicken bouillon granules

6½ cups uncooked wide egg noodles

2 cans condensed cream of chicken soup, undiluted

3 cups rotisserie chicken

1 cup sour cream


1. In a large saucepan, bring water and bouillon to a boil. Add noodles; cook, uncovered, until tender, about 10 minutes. Do not drain. Add soup and chicken; heat through.

2. Remove from the heat; stir in the sour cream. Yields 10-12 servings.
