Like many of you, my grandma would make homemade chicken noodle soup for me whenever I was feeling under the weather.
Chicken noodle soup has long been said to be a wonderful, soothing cure-all, and be it true or not, it still tastes great when you aren’t feeling your best. Rather than noodles, I used potato gnocchi that cook up light and fluffy and perfect for this recipe, along with all the classic veggies. This makes a great soup to share with a neighbor or loved one or even to freeze for later use.
