Best Chicken Noodle Soup Ever

By “best,” I mean that it tastes yummy, it’s simple to make, it involves ingredients already lying around my pantry, and it makes a ton of leftovers. Where were you when I was suffering from a head cold, dear soup?

Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup, by Beth @ Budget Bytes

2 Tbsp olive oil $0.24
1 medium yellow onion $0.63
3 cloves garlic $0.21
½ lb. carrots $0.49
½ bunch celery $0.75
*2 split chicken breast (bone-in) $5.35
1 tsp dried basil $0.05
1 Tbsp dried parsley $0.15
½ tsp dried thyme $0.03
1 whole bay leaf $0.15
10-15 cranks cracked pepper $0.05
1 Tbsp salt $0.10
6 oz. egg noodles $0.90

*Psst. The recipe calls for chicken breast on the bone, but I just used the boneless chicken Erich thawed the night before. Tasted fine to us.
