Relax, Make Ahead Chicken Noodle Soup is here to save the day!
Make Ahead Chicken Noodle Soup is the best freezer/make ahead meal for those winter (dark at 4:30pm) nights when you’ve had a looooong day, and you face the ever familiar crisis of cluelessness about what to eat for dinner. If you’ve got a freezer stocked with this recipe, you’ll never find yourself in this situation again!
Chicken noodle soup cannot be frozen as is – the noodles would completely turn to mush and ruin the whole soup. But don’t worry, I’ll walk you through how to do it right! So head on over to your local grocery store to grab a rotisserie chicken and some fresh produce (onion, carrot, celery and parsley if you like it) so you can stock up on America’s favorite soup.
I love using shredded rotisserie chicken in recipes, it’s deliciously seasoned, moist and already prepared. All you have to do is remove it from the bones and break it apart with clean hands :0). The rest of the recipe is really simple. You’ll make a flavorful broth with fresh veggies, then add in the chicken, divide it into freezer bags and freeze.
When you’re ready to eat it, thaw it out in the microwave long enough to soften the broth so it will fit into your pot. Heat it up to boiling, stir in some egg noodles (which cook very quickly) and serve.
You can have a hot steaming bowl of homemade chicken noodle soup in front of you within 20 minutes with almost no effort. I’d say that’s pretty awesome, and so helpful for whenever you don’t feel like cooking, or need food on the table fast that everybody loves!
