Creamy Chicken Noodle Soup

This has got to be the most decadent comfort food I have ever seen! It is a bowl of scrumptious warmth with healing properties and taste from your childhood, all at the same time. It started out as a recipe from The Amish Cook that I tweaked a bit. Enjoy!!

  • 1/2 cup margarine
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 6 chicken bouillon cubes
  • 6 cups boiling water
  • 1 cup chopped cooked chicken
  • 4 oz. fettucine noodles
  • 1 cup half-and-half
  • salt
  • pepper

Melt the margarine in a 2 quart saucepan over low heat. Blend in the flour. Dissolve the bouillon cubes in the boiling water and gradually add to the flour and margarine mixture. Stir until smooth. Add the chicken and bring to a boil over medium heat. Cook noodles to al dente and add to mixture. Stir in the half-and-half. Season with salt and pepper.

This serves 4-6 people. Add a piece of toasted chunky sourdough bread and you have a wonderful meal for a cool evening. It’s even better reheated but I bet you will not have any leftovers!
