Here's How to Make Quick and Easy Chicken Noodle Soup with Leftover Chicken:
This "recipe" is so easy, it's really not even really a recipe. Ha! It's more of an "idea".
I just take a cup of chicken broth, add it to a saucepan, and simmer it over medium heat.
I also add the leftover chicken from our Sunday night dinner...
And some frozen peas and carrots I keep in the freezer.
Sprinkle in a little dried basil for taste.
Pour the soup into the thermos, and lunch is ready to go. The great thing about this thermos is it will keep the soup hot for up to four hours!
I also like to add in a few crackers to go with the soup and some fruit and nuts for snacks.
