Earlier in the week I baked a marinated turkey breast for dinner. Since it is just J and I, there was a lot left over. I had a pretty tasty sandwich with it the next day, but wanted to use up the rest before it went bad. J has been feeling a bit under the weather and I was planning on making chicken soup and decided to just substitute the turkey. It turned out great! I really liked it and so did J! You can make this with chicken or turkey and it's super easy!
Homemade Turkey Noodle Soup:
- Left over cooked turkey or chicken or frozen chicken breasts (I used about 2 cups I think)
- 1 can 32 oz chicken broth
- vegetables( I used celery, carrots and onion, but you could use anything you want, as much as you want. Another great way to use up leftovers!)
- 6 cups water
- 2 tsp basil
- 1-2 cloves of garlic
- salt and pepper to taste
- 1 cup uncooked noodles
Simmer uncovered for 30-45 minutes until veggies are tender and chicken in cooked through. Remove chicken and dice. If using the precooked dice it up. Add the chicken/turkey and noodles.
Cook for about 15 mins until the noodles are cooked. Enjoy!
