Chicken Soup for the Soul (and Cold )

Is chicken soup good for what ails you?  I hope so - did a Meal on Wheels tonight for a sick friend and her husband.  I'll be anxious to hear if it cures them!  This recipe is from a website called Top Secret Recipes and it is their version from the Hard Rock Cafe. 


Place chicken on baking sheet, rub with olive oil and S&P and bake for 25 minutes




Meanwhile prepare the veggies





Saute the veggies in butter







Then add remaining of the ingredients (except noodles)





Noodles go in last and then after a 10 minute simmer it is time to eat!


Today happened to be a cooler day so this really hit the spot.  Also today John went fishing on the Mississippi in a winter coat!!  He brought home 2 walleyes....
