Rated 5 out of 5 by from ONE POT OF WONDERFULNESS!!! Every person in our family went back for seconds of this simple yet delicious chicken noodle soup. I used the pre-portioned chicken that I had in the freezer from the Tastefully Simple Make & Freeze Chicken recipe and put it in the broth frozen to make it, so other than chopping up the carrots and celery, it took no time at all to throw all the ingredients in a pot. I used spaetzle noodles that I found in the german section of our grocery store and OMG... this soup was ONE POT OF WONDERFULNESS!!! Campbell's Eat Your Heart Out!
