Quick Chicken Noodle Soup

I absolutely adore soup. I eat it with lunch almost every single day. It’s so comforting and fills me up along with a sandwich. On the days I don’t have soup with my lunch, I’m always starving right before dinner. Soup reminds me of being a kid and going to hotels around Ireland with my family. All of us going into a place for lunch and ordering loads of soups and sandwiches. Great memories.  This chicken soup is really easy to make, I hope you enjoy it.
