How To Make The Best Chicken Noodle Soup
Here are the ingredients you’ll need to make this weeknight soup recipe. To save time in the kitchen, use a rotisserie chicken and look for pre-chopped vegetables in your grocery store’s produce section.
Start the recipe by heating oil in a large cast iron pot and saute the onions.
Add the garlic, carrots and celery. Stir to combine and cook until softened, about 10 minutes.
Stir in the chicken and bacon.
Pour in the chicken broth.
Sir in the grated Parmesan Cheese.
Tortellini up next!
Add heavy cream at the end, stir and simmer.
I like to add a few pinches of fresh chopped parsley before serving for freshness.
