Chicken Noodle Soup


Chicken noodle soup is classic comfort food that has been around since the 1800s. It was originally created to help people recover from illnesses and is still popular today. It is often considered a meal replacement due to its high protein and low-fat content. There are many variations of chicken noodle soup, but they all have some sort of broth base. The broth is a liquid that contains water, salt, and any number of spices. When making chicken noodle soup, you want to ensure that you use good-quality ingredients. You should always look for high-quality chicken stock and avoid using canned broth. If you do not have time to make homemade broth, then you can buy low-sodium broths at the grocery store.
