This is my favorite soup to have when the weather starts to get a little chilly or we want to host some friends. It also is good for your gut. Feel free to add or subtract as much meat or veggies as you would like.
My biggest tips:
Cook the noodles separate and add when you serve into each bowl. This prevents the noodles from getting soggy and soaking up the broth. This is also great for people with food allergies so that you can keep separate. I prefer bowtie or wide noodles.
Chicken thighs have way more flavor in soup vs chicken breasts.
The Chicken Bone Broth from Trader Joes has SO MUCH more flavor than regular chicken broth. You can find this in the refridgerated section where they keep the bacon and chicken sausage.
Squeezing lemon at the end is also a must.
