Chicken Macaroni Soup is a very simple and easy chicken soup version that you can make at home. It is also tasty and full of that hearty chicken flavor. I’m not sure if it was only psychological, but I felt better after having a generous bowl of this chicken soup.
If you are a fan of Filipino chicken macaroni sopas, then there is big possibility that you will like this version. It is not creamy compared to the Pinoy sopas because milk is not part of the ingredient. However, it is so good and tasty that to the point that you won’t think about milk or any other ingredient to add.
I think that the secret to that awesome chicken taste has something to do with the state of the chicken that was used to make the dish. I used cooked rotisserie chicken when I made it. This is readily available in most groceries and you can purchase it as needed. You can also use baked chicken, and you can make one at home using this baked chicken recipe.
I remembered how good and tasty my arroz caldo got when I used rotisserie chicken, so I did the same thing here.
