Odds And Ends, Thrown Together Soup™

Did you ever have one of those days where you're not up to cooking. Today it happened to me.

This is an easy recipe that can be done quickly.

I've used canned chicken but this is also great with leftover chicken and turkey too.

2 - 3 cans (5 oz each) cooked chicken
1 small onion chopped
3/4 c fresh mushrooms
1 - 2 cloves garlic crushed and chopped
8 c. low sodium chicken broth
2 - 3 each: celery stalks, carrots chopped
Pinch each: salt, pepper, dried parsley
1 medium - large potato diced
1 - 1 1/4 c egg noodles (adjust amount)

Open cans of chicken and drain. Set aside.

Rinse and chop potato, celery, mushrooms and carrots.

Peel, rinse and chop onions, garlic.

In a soup pot combine: broth,  chicken, vegetables, salt, pepper,  herbs. Bring to a boil for 5 - 10 min. Lower heat to medium low and let simmer for 30 - 40 min. 

Add noodles about 10 - 15 min before serving. Continue cooking until noodles are done.

Serves 8.
