Semi-Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup

I love chicken noodle soup, especially when I'm sick.  I've always wanted to make homemade chicken noodle soup but I never wanted to spend all day making it.  The idea of making your own stock from scratch and such is just a daunting task that I'm not ready to face yet.  This is a good alternative for me.  About 30 minutes in the kitchen and you're ready to go! 

I got this lovely recipe from Table for Two, stop by and show them some love and check out some of their other delicious recipes!
