This make-ahead Mason Jar Chicken Noodle Soup is just what the doctor ordered. The dried spices and noodles make for the perfect care package for a sick friend in need. To make the soup more substantial and satisfying, we suggest adding diced chicken or vegetables to the broth and a dash of lemon juice. Otherwise, you can just enjoy the slurpable noodles in their stomach-soothing broth.
This recipe calls for egg noodles because they cook quickly without leaching too much starch into the broth, which would end up muting the broth’s flavor. You can also use quick-cooking ramen or buckwheat soba, or any spiral-shaped pasta, which look best in the gifted Mason jar.
