“Marjoram and thyme come through nicely in this old-fashioned soup that tastes just like Grandma used to make. You can modify the recipe to include vegetables your family enjoys. My kids love carrots, so I always toss in extra.” –Coleen Martin, Brookfield, Wisconsin


1/2  cup finely chopped carrot

1/4  cup finely chopped celery

1/4  cup finely chopped onion

1  teaspoon butter

6  cups chicken broth

1-1/2  cups cubed cooked chicken

1  teaspoon salt

1/2  teaspoon dried marjoram

1/2  teaspoon dried thyme

1/8  teaspoon pepper

1-1/4  cups uncooked medium egg noodles

1  tablespoon minced fresh parsley


Saute the carrot, celery and onion in butter in a Dutch oven until tender. Stir in the broth, chicken and seasonings. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat. Add noodles; cook for 10 minutes or until noodles are tender. Sprinkle with parsley.
