Nothing says "I love you" quite like a bowl of chicken noodle soup, and this creamy version is one that I crave when temperatures turn cool, and days are short. It comes together quickly so you can have it ready in less than 30 minutes. I like to keep the ingredients on hand so I can turn to this when it's needed. There are just those days when soup is a must!
