Quick And Easy Chicken Soup Recipe For Colds-Flu

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

This is my Quick and Easy Chicken Soup recipe for colds and flu that anyone can make easily. My neighborhood is experiencing a cold or some kind of virus that is lasting 3-6 weeks. Some people have bronchitis, coughs, and sinus infections and they are feeling drained of energy. I have talked to two neighbors who have been sick since Christmas and they just can’t seem to kick the cold symptoms.

One mentioned her husband thought he was on the mend and then BAM he was flat in bed. This must be a bad virus, flu, cold, or whatever is going around. My husband and I have been taking meals to families and today I’m going to make the biggest pot of my chicken soup recipe and put it in quart jars to deliver to more people. If you have neighbors that are ill this recipe can be taken to them in quart jars or disposable containers. All they have to do is heat it up and enjoy this chicken soup recipe that is homemade.

Chicken Soup Is My Go-to Remedy

Here’s the deal with chicken soup when people have a cold or influenza without complication. Of course, it soothes the throat and helps clear the nasal passages. I would call it a comfort food we all grew up on that Grandma made for anyone who was sick. We rarely went to the doctor and somehow the soup made us feel better. This is truly the best homemade chicken noodle soup in the world. I have made this for years and now my grandkids ask me for the recipe. The reason I think this is the best chicken soup recipe is the fact that 99.9% of the ingredients are right there in your pantry, freezer, refrigerator, or food storage pantry. You can interchange chicken in cans or use frozen chicken or leftover chicken.

You can make your own noodles, or use my secret ingredient noodles: Grandma’s Frozen Egg Noodles. Of course, you can boil your packaged noodles/pasta of choice and add them later when the soup is almost finished cooking. I use my electric slow cooker so I can do other things because I usually have ten things going on at once. So I set the slow cooker on low and go about my day doing stuff we all do each day. I call it my set and forget dinner. It really is a very yummy smooth soup with just the right amount of spices. It practically fills my 3-1/2 quart crock pot.

  1. I usually take oregano oil when I am getting sick. It helps. I didn’t take it before I got my last cold, and suffered the consequeces.

    1. Hi Janet, I just bought some oregano oil for antiseptic and for health issues. What brand do you buy? How much do you use? I have a great essential oil book, I should say books. I love learning what brand people like. Thanks so much, Linda

      1. I buy from Puritans pride. I simply take one in the morning and one at night. Do not take longer than 2 weeks. Then take a probiotic if needed.

  2. The chicken noodle recipe sounds wonderful. The one thing I will add when I cook it will be some grated fresh ginger, maybe a teaspoon. It helps with healing and relieves inflammation. I keep fresh ginger on hand at all times. I put pieces in a quart jar with 1/3 water and 2/3 white wine in the refrigerator.
