Chicken Noodle Soup

Start With the Chicken:

Start with 2 tablespoons of olive oil and place the chicken breasts on top and then cover with the seasonings, flip the breasts and cover with seasonings on the other side. Continually flip the chicken, shredding the chicken with two forks as each layer cooks, this helps to speed up the cooking time or you can wait until they are fully cooked to start shredding them. While these are cooking prepare the soup in a big soup pan. Wait to prepare the noodles until you are almost done for they only take 8 minutes to cook.

During the end it’s going to be quick with the soup boiling, shredding the chicken and cooking the noodles.

To serve add in the noodles separately to the soup, this keeps the noodles from absorbing too much liquid and tasting overcooked. Enjoy! Don’t forget to take out the bay leaf!

If you intend to have leftovers, I suggest storing the soup and noodles separately so that the noodles don’t absorb the liquid.
