NOODLES

1 ¼ cups all-purpose flour

  6. Add noodles a few at a time to broth mixture and return soup to a boil.
  7. Add chicken, vegetables, and pepper. Simmer for 12 to 15 minutes or until noodles are tender. Serve warm.
  8. Refrigerate or freeze within 2 hours.

Notes

  • Broth can be canned or made using bouillon. For each cup of broth use 1 cup very hot water and 1 teaspoon or 1 cube bouillon.
  • Try whole wheat flour to include whole grains.
  • Freeze extra for another meal.
