Chicken Noodle Soup is the epitome of warm, delicious comfort. Making your own couldn't be easier, and it tastes SO much better.

The most comforting of all foods has GOT to be Chicken Soup. It's a favorite meal in our house, and what I love so much about it is you are able to add pretty much whatever you want to it. It's just a good catch-all soup that is fairly impossibly to mess up.

And what's also great about it is you can make it from scratch, making your own chicken stock, etc…OR you can do a quick soup with store bought stock. Both serve a purpose. I love to make my own chicken soup from scratch, reserving a few hours on a lazy Sunday afternoon, but my life is fairly hectic sometimes with kids, work and activities, so having a quick Chicken Soup recipe in my back pocket is always nice to throw together at the last minute.

And before I share the recipe with you, I just have to mention that I used this stinking GORGEOUS Le Creuset pot to make it in.

First, let’s talk about the color. It's called Quince, and it's a bright, shiny new color that Le Creuset developed exclusively for Williams-Sonoma. Isn't it bah-yoo-tiful? It's a balanced, warm and comforting yellow… perfect for the ultimate comfort food, Chicken Noodle Soup.
