Clean Homestyle Chicken Noodle Soup
My family loves soup! We have several recipes that we enjoy regularly, but this one has been on our favorites list for a long time. Over the years, I have made changes, making it a little "cleaner," but the slightly creamy base still makes it seem more rich than the calorie count reflects. The evaporated skim milk is the secret ingredient that adds the creaminess. Just don't make the same mistake I did once...I accidentally added SWEETENED evaporated skim milk! Ugh, what a disappointment! I have not made that mistake again.
Since I've fallen in love with my pressure cooker, I often make this recipe in the pressure cooker, cooking the chicken and making the soup in no time at all.
