What could be better than chicken soup on a cold day? Before a long-awaited spring, warm your stomach and your kitchen with this quick and easy chicken noodle soup. The classic “mirepoix” of carrots, celery, and onion is spiced up a bit with the addition of fennel.

Boil the soup:
2 Boil the soup:
Add all the vegetables (just not the dill) and the chicken base to the pot and continue to heat to boiling, covered. Once the soup boils, uncover and reduce the heat to medium. Simmer about 20 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through.
Skim the soup:

While you cut up the chicken, add the noodles to the pot. Simmer about 4 minutes, then add the chicken meat to the pot and cook 1 minute longer. Taste the broth for seasoning. Add some salt and pepper, little by little, tasting after each addition, until you reach the desired level of seasoning.
