Crazy Cooking Challenge--Chicken Noodle Soup

Oh it took me so long to find a chicken soup that I was going to make for this Crazy Cooking Challenge on chicken noodle soup.  I was trying to find a soup that would be to all of our liking here at testosterone heaven.  I know that the boys around here will mostly eat anything, but I'm a little picky about soup. As Rachael Ray would say I prefer "stoup", and chicken noodle doesn't typically qualify as that.  I also was looking for a recipe that I could use items from my freezer and pantry.
I feel so lucky to have found Cooking Dunkin Style while perusing Pinterest the other day.  
This recipe had all of the qualities that I was looking for and I didn't have to go to the store.  I left the spinach out since I didn't have it and it was still scrumptious. 

2 carrots diced
2 stalks celery diced
1 onion diced
Sautee veggies in 2 tablespoons butter until soft.
Add 6 cups of chicken stock (I used homemade)
Salt to taste
Bring to a boil and allow to simmer for approximately
30 minutes.  Add 1/2 box of orzo, and 2 cups of cooked, chopped chicken.  Allow the pasta to cook until plump and tender.  Serve with crusty bread and a salad if desired.'s a good one ;o)



  1. Simple and delicious looking.
