Chicken Soup

Sure, your grandmother's chicken soup is your favorite. But it takes a full day of cooking to make the stock, plus another couple of hours to prepare the rest. That doesn't mean you have to eat it out of the can if you don't have time to make it from scratch. Pick up a rotisserie chicken, some chicken broth and a package of egg noodles. Once you pick all the chicken meat from the bone, combine it with the other ingredients in a pot on the stove. If time permits, chop up some onions and carrots and celery for extra seasoning, or just add frozen carrots if you don't have time for chopping.
