Chicken Noodle Butternut Squash Soup

I was so hungry for soup one day, so I just decided to mix some of my favorite ingredients together! This soup turned out delicious and I will be making it regularly around here, especially as we are approaching cooler weather!

 Chop up the chicken into chunks, I used a package of probably 12 boneless skinless chicken tenders
 Boil the chicken chunks in 2 packages of 3 lb chicken broth...

 3 tablespoons of butter, chopped onion, garlic and celery, saute in pan, add to boiled chicken.
In same pan peel and chop up butternut squash, 2 tablespoons of butter, cover and let simmer for 10 minutes until soft, add that to the broth.
 add in some frozen sliced carrots and dumpling noodles (found at the grocery store as a no egg alternative)
 I added a few drops of this white Truffle oil in the butternut squash
 this is the chicken broth I used
 Finished soup! Add a little of shaved parmesan cheese on top! :)
Chicken Noodle Butternut Squash Soup

2lbs of Boneless Skinless Chicken Tenders (chopped in chunks)
2 (3lb) Boxes of Chicken Broth
2 stalks of celery (chopped)
2 small white onions (chopped)
3 cloves of garlic (chopped)
1/2 small bag of frozen sliced carrots
1 large Butternut Squash (peeled and diced)
5 tbsp of unsalted butter
1/2 package of dumpling noodles (I found at grocery store by egg noodles)
2 teaspoons basil
optional (few drops of white truffle oil)
Fresh shaved Parmesan (Found at grocery store in a container in the cheeses)

Heat broth over medium to high heat, add diced chicken in to boil chicken.  While chicken is boiling, in a pan, add chopped celery, onions and garlic together with 3 tbsp of butter.  Once that is soft, add to the broth mixture.  Peel and dice butternut squash, add to the same pan onions were cooked in and add 2 tbsp of butter and a few drops of truffle oil.  Cook those on medium-low heat covered until soft, about 10 minutes.  Add squash to soup, add in frozen carrots to soup, add in basil and salt & Pepper to soup.  Last step is to add in noodles. Once noodles are cooked turn heat to low and let sit for about 20 minutes.  Serve hot with Shaved Parmesan on top!
