Easy Hearty Chicken Noodle Soup

So, I’ll save my more time consuming, but totally worth it chicken noodle soup recipe for another day and give you this just as worth it, easy 30 minute recipe instead!

 

The key to this quick recipe is using pre-cooked chicken, either by cooking a whole chicken and shredding for the week or buying a tasty rotisserie chicken at the store. I must admit that I do love a good rotisserie chicken from my local Krogers or Walmart.
