Light Creamy Chicken Noodle Soup

We were only back in school for a week when I already had kids in my class dropping like flies.  Then, my own little lady caught a bad cold too.  Time for chicken noodle soup!  I adore my staple, broth-based chicken noodle soup, but was craving something a bit different.  

Perfect doesn't even begin to describe this soup.  Seriously.  I've tried various "light" versions of cream-based soups in the past, but none of them come close to this soup.  It even reheats like a dream and is just as perfect the next day.  My mister and I couldn't stop talking about how much we loved this - he said he likes it even more than chili and any other soups.  I hope you love it as much as we do!
Best dishes and yummy dreams!

Chicken soup and a hug and a kiss from momma are the best medicine. Be a good momma. The hand that rocks the cradle rocks the world. Prayers that you are all well soon.

Big Hugs and Blessings,
