Chickpea & Chicken Noodle Soup

Pin It
I really like Chickpeas (Garbanzo Beans) and enjoy finding different ways to eat them.  I used to only eat them when I went to a buffet in my salad.  Now I love to eat them in so many different dishes.  I came across this recipe and was very excited to give it a try.  I am notorious for under seasoning foods because I am nervous to over do it.  This turned out so perfectly and my whole family loved it. 

You will need Parmesan Cheese, Salt & Pepper, Italian Seasoning, Garlic, Red Pepper Flakes, Noodles, Chickpeas, Chicken, Chicken Broth, and Oil. 
I also decided to add 2 Carrots.

Boil the Chicken..I just threw it in frozen.

Chop up the Garlic.

Warm a Big pot over medium heat add in the Oil, Garlic, and Red Pepper Flakes and stir around.

Peel and chop up the Carrots.

In a pot add the Broth, Water, Carrots, and Seasoning.  Bring everything to a boil.

Then add in the Chickpeas
And the Noodles.
Chop up the cooked Chicken and add to the soup.

Gently boil for 8-12 minutes or until the Noodles are cooked through.

Before serving add a bit of Parmesan Cheese.  Enjoy!
