Rosemary Chicken Noodle SoupRecipe

Oxmoor House

To save cleanup time, cook the noodles first, and then use the same pot for the soup. Add the noodles to the soup just before serving so they don't absorb too much of the broth. You can bring the noodles to work in a zip-top plastic bag. Make the soup the night before, cool to room temperature, and refrigerate; reheat in the microwave or in a slow cooker set on HIGH.
