Betty Crocker offers an easy recipe for chicken noodle soup that includes chicken, garlic, egg noodles, carrots and green onions. The recipe involves simmering the vegetables and then boiling them in chicken broth with the other ingredients.
To make Betty Crocker's Easy Chicken Noodle Soup, heat 1 tablespoon of olive or vegetable oil over medium heat in a 3-quart saucepan. Add two cloves of finely chopped garlic, 1/2 cup of sliced green onions and 1 cup of chopped carrots. Cook the vegetable combination for four minutes.
Next, add 5 1/4 cups of chicken broth. Stir in 2 cups of cubed cooked chicken, 2 cups of uncooked egg noodles, 1 tablespoon of chopped fresh parsley or 1 teaspoon of parsley flakes and 1/4 teaspoon of pepper. In addition, include one dried bay leaf. Heat the broth to boiling before reducing the heat.
Cover the saucepan and let the soup simmer for ten minutes, stirring occasionally. The soup is ready to serve when the carrots and noodles are slightly softened. Remove the bay leaf before serving.
The preparation time for the soup is only 15 minutes, and the entire cooking process takes only 25 minutes. To save even more time, Betty Crocker recommends using pre-cut bagged carrots. The recipe serves four.
