Soup weather is some of my favorite weather. If it’s going to be grey and gloomy or rainy or all around yuck outside, I say bring on the soup and crusty bread. Because, you obviously can’t have one without the other. Am I right, or am I right? And when your young children are requesting this Lemon Dill Chicken Noodle Soup specifically by name? Well, then you know you’ve got a winner on your hands!
My Lemon Dill Chicken Noodle Soup is a twist on the ordinary and easily stands out from the crowd. Lemon and fresh dill transform a childhood favorite into something bright and flavorful. The fact that it’s a one pot soup and it can be prepared in less than 30 minutes elevates it’s status to weekday worthy. Forget to take the chicken out of the freezer to thaw? Not a problem! You’ll simply add a few more minutes to the cooking time. This soup will be one of those recipes you’ll be adding to your menu plan arsenal. Great taste and no fuss equals a win/win in my book!
Those noodles? I’m a sucker for cute pasta. And yes, I think these noodles are cute. They’re simply a smaller version of the usual bowtie variety. Easier to eat with a spoon and I also knew that they’d be a hit with my children as well. Soup tends to be a bit difficult for the younger two to eat so I tend to add a bit less broth to their portions. This equals more chicken, vegetables and noodle-y goodness for the younger crowd.
Chicken soups tend to be super popular with our family. It’s no surprise that this Lemon Dill Chicken Noodle Soup is joining my recipe box alongside my rich and creamy Slow Cooker King Ranch Chicken Soup, super popular Easy Chicken and Dumpling Soup and my mashup Slow Cooker BBQ Chicken Pizza Soup.
For three years now, I’ve partnered with two of my favorite food bloggers, Emily from Jelly Toast and Courtney from Neighborfood, for Soup-er Bowl week. Basically, the week before the big game, we’ve each committed to sharing two new soup recipes with you so that you’re able to serve them for the big game. This Lemon Dill Chicken Noodle Soup seemed to be the perfect soup to introduce this week. A one pot soup that’s ready in just 30 minutes? It’s true! This Lemon Dill Chicken Noodle Soup is bursting with bright flavors and is sure to awaken your taste buds.
You definitely won’t want to miss the Instant Pot Buffalo Chicken Soup that Emily is sharing and the Crock Pot Gnocchi Soup with Roasted Red Peppers that Courtney created. I can’t decide which one I want to try first!
