This deliciously comforting easy chicken noodle soup will be welcomed all year round. There are no herbs or spices just tasty, fresh ingredients that provide simple flavour. Choose which noodles to use from a variety available. Use good fresh chicken stock if you can for maximum flavour. Itís extremely easy to make your own chicken stock by boiling up your leftover Sunday roast chicken with an onion, a carrot a few black peppercorns and whatever fresh or dried herbs you have to hand. Strain the stock and once itís cold you can freeze it until you are ready to use in soups, stews and sauces.
