Chicken Noodle Soup

I am NOT a fan of that chicken noodle soup that comes from a can.  It's enough to gag me! Several years ago I set out to make my own and have been doing just that ever since!!! I just made a batch my CNS this morning to eat with lunches for the next several days.  I hope you'll give it a try.  Like most of my recipes it's super easy to make.

1 lb. chicken, cubed
3 large carrots, peeled and chopped
3 large stalks of celery, chopped
1 softball sized onion, chopped
4 cans (14 oz. each) chicken stock or broth
1 cup macaconi pasta
1 tbsp olive oil
3 tbsp butter
salt and pepper to taste
fresh chopped parsley, optional

In large pot over medium heat toss in olive oil and butter.  Once butter is melted turn heat to med/high and pour veggies in.  Saute them for about 5 minutes.  Add chicken and saute for about another 5 minutes.  Salt and pepper to your liking.  Pour in chicken stock or broth and let come to a boil.  Toss in macaroni and cook for another 5 minutes.  Enjoy!

*Goes well with homemade biscuits!!!
