15 Minute Creamy Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup

15 Minute Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup

 

I do a lot of recipe creation.  Sometimes the recipes don’t turn out well and I never share them with you.  But sometimes, I come up with a winner.

This chicken noodle soup is a winner!

First of all, it takes just 15 minutes to fix.

It’s also homemade.  Okay, I’m using that term a little loose.  The broth isn’t homemade.  And my mom asked if the noodles were homemade (she’s hard to impress!).

But there’s no cream soups or mixes in here.  And that’s what I mean by homemade.

And if you’re smart enough to make your own broth and freeze it and use chicken you’ve cooked and frozen, then it really can be homemade.  (I’m not even going to talk about making the noodles though.)

I used boxed chicken broth and frozen rotisserie chicken for mine.  Everyone loved it!  It’s creamy, nourishing and hearty.

Chicken Tortellini with Kale – a 15 minute recipe

This Chicken Tortellini with Kale has been made twice in our house so far.  Once by me and once by Jim.  He got home before I did the other night and texted asking if there was anything he could do.  I suggested he could make dinner.  I knew we had the ingredients for this recipe in the fridge and the recipe notes were still sitting on the counter.

Chicken Tortellini with Kale 15 minute meal

 

When I walked in the door, he had this dinner on the table.  I love that!

He doesn’t cook very often, but he was able to follow this easy recipe.  Actually, he was able to follow the notes, which aren’t as complete as the full recipe when I type it here.  So this is a very easy recipe.

And it’s also really good.  I wasn’t sure how my kids would react to the kale.  They love kale chips, but cooked kale is a different thing.  I didn’t need to worry though, because they loved it!

The dark, leafy kale contrasted in taste, texture and color to the pasta, cheese and chicken.  A little bit of red pepper flakes added even more flavor.

Cheesy Chicken Chili Mac – Make it Quick with Rotisserie Chicken and Macaroni

Cheesy Chicken Chili Mac

Earlier this week I shared lots of recipes for making use of rotisserie chicken.  Here’s another one for you.  If you keep cooked chicken in your freezer, you’ll be able to make this recipe in about 20 minutes.  All the ingredients are pantry items that we tend to keep on hand.

The recipe comes together quickly.  You’ll make a quick white sauce and add cheese to it.  I love an easy meal that also is homemade.

Cheddar cheese and tomatoes with green chilies help make this dish full of flavor.  My kids loved this one and so did I.

Chicken Enchiladas with Red Sauce and White Cheese

Chicken Enchiladas with Red Sauce and White Cheese

 

There are several reasons that you’re going to want to make these chicken enchiladas.

First, they start with a rotisserie chicken.  (I’ve got a post coming next week about using Costco rotisserie chickens to stock your freezer. They make a great base for easy meals.)

Second, the sauce is easy and homemade.  It uses pantry items so you’ll likely always have the ingredients on hand.

Third, I skip that time consuming, messy step of dipping the enchilada shells in hot oil and sauce.  This pan of enchiladas can be assembled in about 20 minutes, including making the sauce.

Finally, the enchiladas are cheesy, and covered with a red sauce that’s full of flavor, but not spicy.  This is a crowd pleaser!

Easy Chicken Alfredo Pasta Bake with Sun-Dried Tomatoes

Chicken Alfredo Pasta Bake with Sun-Dried Tomatoes

 

This Chicken Alfredo Pasta Bake couldn’t get any easier.  For one thing, I started with rotisserie chicken.  More on that in a post coming soon.

To the rotisserie chicken, I added Alfredo sauce, sun-dried tomatoes and cooked pasta.  Top it all with provolone cheese and pop it in the oven for a bit.

The kids loved this and so did I!

This casserole is creamy, cheesy and full of flavor.

In an unrelated note, check out that casserole dish.  I use that dish all the time and it’s been in a lot of photos on the site.  It’s one of those things I don’t really take notice of.  I’m pretty sure that amber colored Visions piece isn’t being made any more.  It was a wedding gift.  Any other brides from the 1980s still using their Visions cookware?
