Wash all vegetables and cut then into desired sizes,I recommend fairly big sizes the vegetables don’t get mushy.
Dice the cooked chicken breast, as desired. Cook soup noodles until it is al dente ( meaning firm to the bite), strain it and ran cold water on it to stop it from cooking further then set aside.
Now in a medium pot, bring chicken stock to a boil and add the carrots to it. Note; The secret to a delicious chicken noodle soup or any kind of chicken soups,is having a great chicken stock. If you haven’t already, check out my Home made chicken stock here.
