Chicken noodle soup might be one of the simplest meals to make, but the satisfaction it brings can hardly be matched. This simplified scratch version creates depth of flavor by browning the chicken first, then softening the aromatic vegetables, and adding the broth and egg noodles. It’s a chicken soup that’s everything you want it to be: easy, comforting and completely classic.
