Fall is here in the Northwest and the slow cooker is coming out of summer retirement. But if you need dinner on the table fast, try this easy 10 minute noodle soup recipe that kids love. My little ones love the soft noodles and filling chicken along with their favorite veggies - carrots and peas. Mix these up with a homemade chicken broth or do like I do and pour in a box of low sodium chicken broth for a no preservative, healthy dinner for the entire family.

Dress up Mom and Dad's serving with a garnish of dill, sliced avocado, croutons or corn chips and Tabasco for a southwest kick. If you opt to add the best parts of a rotisserie chicken, add the unused skin and bones to a pot of water and simmer for a couple of hours to make your own chicken broth for next week. Refrigerate your homemade chicken stock or freeze for future use. Pack this 10 minute noodle soup in a heat saving thermos for school lunches. Add some ritz crackers or saltines and a cheese stick for a balanced lunch. However you devour this quick and easy chicken soup, bon appetit and enjoy your 10 minute noodle soup!
