Karen’s Killer Fixin’s: Chicken Noodle Soup


It’s time for Karen’s Killer Fixin’s! Over the years, I’ve filled two 4-inch, 3-ring binders with my own creations as well as recipes my family and friends were willing to share with me. I simply love to cook and want to share that love with my readers. So every Friday, I share one recipe I think you and your family might enjoy. It might be a main course recipe. A cookie or baked item. Candy. Salads. Whatever strikes my eye and fancy…which today is CHICKEN NOODLE SOUP!

I don’t know about you but I make a lot of soups during the winter months. It’s great comfort food when you’re fighting off the cold and so easy to throw together in one pot. I have been known to make chicken noodle soup completely from scratch but, sometimes, it’s great to do a quickie version. That is the version I wanted to share with you today.

I hope you enjoy today’s Killer Fixin’s. Happy eating!

  1. This looks easy and delicious, Karen. It’s motivated me to make some chicken soup tongiht! I’m fighting off a cold and that would hit the bullseye. Also, FYI, I’m not getting multiple emails, only the one, all is well. Happy new year to you and your subscribers.

    1. I’m sorry you’re feeling cold-ish. 🙂 Chicken Noodle Soup always sounds so great when you’re not feeling quite the thing. I hope you enjoy your dinner! I would recommend throwing in some garlic, too. It’s also good for colds and I love garlic. Feel better, Kenna!

      Thanks for confirming the emails. Happy Friday! 🙂

    1. Yummy! Honestly, I’ve never really tried quinoa but chicken vegetable is always good. Sometimes I prefer to add brown and wild rice instead of the noodles. I’ll even add a bit of cheese to that one occasionally. 🙂

  2. Happy New Year.
    Thank you for sharing your quick and easy chicken noodle soup recipe.
    Can’t wait to try it.
    Have a great day.
