Hearty Chicken Noodle Soup

This soup is the cure for what ails you!  Just in time for cold & flu season too.  It's thick, creamy, and comforting; perfect for cold winter nights!  If you like you soup a little thinner, you can simply add more broth while cooking.  I use store bought noodles, one of the only things that I prefer to buy than make these days.  They help the soup come together easily without compromising any of it's homemade goodness!  Trust me, one spoonful of this soup & you'll never settle for the canned stuff again. 
2 Chicken Breasts
1 med/ large Yellow Onion, chopped
1-2 Carrots, sliced
1-2 stalk of Celery, sliced
1-2 Garlic Cloves, minced
1 stick of Butter
2- 32 oz containers of Chicken Broth (plus more for thinner soup)
2 Chicken Flavored Bouillon Cubes
1/4 tsp Ground Turmeric
1/4 cup Flour
3/4 tsp dried Parsley
24 oz bag of Homestyle Egg Noodles (frozen)
Olive Oil
Salt & Pepper

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Place the chicken breast on a baking sheet.  You can use what ever you have, it can be bone in & skin on or not.  Drizzle with olive oil & season with salt & pepper.  Roast at 350 degrees for 35-45 minutes, or until the chicken is fully cooked.
 While the chicken is roasting, start the soup.  Melt the butter in a large pot over low- medium heat.  I used a 5.5 quart dutch oven.
 Add in the chopped onion, carrots, & celery to the melted butter.  Season with salt & pepper & cook until tender.  Add in the minced garlic & cook another 1-2 minutes. 
 Add in the flour.
 Stirring frequently cook the flour for 2-3 minutes.  
 Add in the ground turmeric & stir.  Turmeric is what gives the soup it's beautiful yellow color as well as it's wonderful flavor! 
 Add in the chicken broth, bouillon cubes & parsley.  Stir to incorporate, cover & simmer while the chicken finishes cooking & cools.
When the chicken is cool enough to touch, shred with your fingers & add to the soup. 
 This is the brand of noodles that I use.  I love these!  Seriously, one of the best time savers in the grocery store!!
 Follow the directions on the bag of noodles for adding them to the soup.   
 This brand tells you to crank the heat to a boil & then add the noodles.
 Cook 20-30 minutes or until the noodles are done, stirring occasionally. 
 Check your seasoning, add more broth, salt or pepper to taste.
Serve in a large soup bowl & enjoy!
 Ummmmmmmm.  Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup.  There's nothing like it!
