Simple Old Fashioned Chicken Noodle Soup

With allergies kicking in, I have several people with colds, sinus infections and bronchitis! Soooo, I made some good old fashioned Chicken Noodle Soup! I made it with a dash of cayenne pepper and a splash of lemon in this batch to help open the sinuses and clear the throat!

12 cups chicken broth*
4 cups chicken, cut into pieces**
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 teaspoon minced garlic

1/2 teaspoon dried sweet basil
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
8 ounces dried wide egg noodles
Salt and Pepper, to taste

Combine all the ingredients but the noodles. Bring to a boil, and add noodles. Reduce to a simmer and cook until done. (about 8-10 minutes) Taste the broth and adjust the seasonings to your taste.

* I use homemade chicken stock. If you need to use store bought, make sure it is a good quality stock. It's the base of your soup, and it "makes or breaks" your final dish!

**I used leftover grilled chicken. You can use any chicken you'd like.
