It’s been 8 years since Mr. Prevention and I first met, almost to the day. Eight blissful years…aww. And in all eight years of love, Mr. Prevention has spoken of Comforting Chicken Noodle Soup on many occasions. It’s a soup he grew up with and adores.
The first time I mentioned that I need to try Comforting Chicken Noodle Soup, I distinctly recall my mother-in-law telling me that it’s an embarrassingly easy recipe and certainly not blog-worthy. Well, here it is! In all its blog-worthy glory!
Sure, the ingredient list and nutrition information are far from “optimal”, but when Mr. Prevention came down with a virus this weekend his one request was happily fulfilled. He’s so pathetic and cute when he’s sick…
Comforting Chicken Noodle Soup slightly adapted from Taste of Home
2 quarts water
8 5 chicken bouillon cubes
6-1/2 cups uncooked wide egg noodles
2 cans (10-3/4 ounces each) condensed cream of chicken soup, undiluted
3 cups cubed cooked chicken
1 cup (8 ounces) light sour cream
Minced fresh parsley
In a large saucepan, bring water and bouillon to a boil. Add noodles; cook, uncovered, until tender, about 10 minutes. Do not drain. Add soup and chicken; heat through.
Remove from the heat; stir in the sour cream. Sprinkle with minced parsley. Yield: about 15 cups.

Result: This dish showcases comfort food and I can certainly see why Mr. P requests this soup when sick. It’s certainly not fancy or “healthy”, but it is good…and good for the soul! Enjoy![/print_this]
Now I am selfishly hoping the virus doesn’t get passed along to me! I hate being sick!
I got everything crossed off my to-do list yesterday, except lesson planning. I did my meal planning for the week, grocery shopping, long-run (5.75 miles), and online traffic school all while being lazy watching movies with Mr. P all day (I think I’ve had enough Rambo for a lifetime, however)! 😀
I am really excited for this week’s menu…be sure to stop by!
Question: What’s your #1 request when sick?
