Cheater's Chicken Noodle Soup

The perfect cure for your springtime cold.

I've seen this recipe in a few different places. Very tasty...especially for how easy it is!

(If you want to be even more of a "cheater," buy a rotisserie
chicken like I did like some people do. :)

Cheater's Chicken Noodle Soup
Makes a large pot

4 quarts water
10 chicken bouillon cubes (I use "Better Than Bouillon" reduced sodium)
2-3 cups chopped carrots
1-2 cups chopped celery*
6 1/2 cups uncooked egg noodles (I use whole grain pasta)
2 cans cream of chicken soup (I use a homemade substitute for this)
3-4 chicken breasts, cooked and diced
1 Tbsp onion powder
salt & pepper, to taste
8 oz. light sour cream

In large stockpot, combine water & bouillon cubes and bring to a boil. Add carrots & celery and simmer, uncovered, for 10 minutes. Add noodles and cook for 8-10 more minutes. Add soup & chicken and heat through, stirring over medium heat. Add seasonings to taste. Remove from heat; add sour cream and stir to blend in.

Easy enough, right?

*I've also used green beans or peas in place of celery and it worked out great.

I needed a quick and easy recipe the other day so this is what I made. I didn't expect it to be THAT good. The sour cream made it divine, but maybe that's just because I'm pregnant. I could drink this soup! I was so hot (in our AC-less apartment) the other day that I just ate it cold. It was still delicious!
