Post Quick Easy Chicken soup

I am looking for a quick easy recipe for Chicken Soup. My 6 year old is home with an earache and he likes chicken soup. Any recipe would help!
Thank you!

Marygio,
If in a hurry, I just use canned chicken broth, add some frozen veggies that the kids like, carrots,peas, zucchini, then in a seperate pot i cook some small pasta, when done I drain and add to soup. Season a little and the kids love it this way. Left over rice is nice to add instead of pasta..Hope this helps a little and your little guy feels better soon.

I make "quickie" chicken soup all the time. Since I always have individually frozen boneless skinless chicken breast pieces in the freezer, I take one of those & cook/poach it in a saucepan of some Swanson's chicken broth. When the chicken is cooked, I take it out to cool & cook whatever veggies I want in the broth (frozen peas & carrots, spinach, diced fresh zucchini - whatever). Then shred up the chicken breast & add it back to the broth along with whatever small pasta I might want to use. Simmer the extra couple of minutes it takes the tiny pasta to cook & then serve.

Fast & delicious.

It takes 1 hour to make any chicken soup from scratch. I do not use cans/jars/pacages. Nothing like home made chicken soup.

Um, CharlieD - the point/query of this post was how to make a decent FAST/QUICK chicken soup for a sick child - not how to make a chicken soup from scratch.

Good grief.

Yeah, exactly my point, 1 hour is very quick.

You have to way the advantages of fresh soup versus canned stuf. In the time, that soup is cooking kid can have some tea, or warm milk with some honey.
